Wow, so much going on I have had NO time to post. Most important thing first. I have a show opening this Friday in Raleigh at the MJH Gallery in the lobby of the Arts Council on Blount St. This image is from work I did last summer when I was at TICA in Chicago. The title is "Chicago Blues". It is one of 8 paintings on display. The opening is from 6-9pm and is part of the First Friday event in downtown Raleigh. Follow the link to get more info. If you are in the Raleigh area, I hope you can make it. If you can't make this show, no worries, I have a BIG one coming up in August at the Tyler D Gallery in Burlington. Ed and I will both have work there. He is planning to show a lot of new sculpture as well as a large installation. I will have new paintings as well. Then 3 more shows in Nov, Dec, and Jan. Whew! Lots of painting to do this spring and summer.

School has kept me very busy. We had our spring statewide NAHS retreat 2 weeks ago. (More about that on another post.) I have had an awesome student teacher for the last 10 weeks. Don't know how I would have gotten everything done without her. AP portfolios and grades are due this week and we have an Art Fair this Friday at school. Lots of artwork and prints for sale along with a raffle. The RHS Senior art show came down this week. My students always have outstanding artwork on display at the Randolph Arts Guild in Asheboro. The Youth Art Month Show was at the end of March and the NC NAHS Traveling Art Exhibit will come down this week as well. All of that art is on our NAHS webpage.

I'm off to my opening on Friday and then down to Blackbeard Sailing Club in New Bern on Sat. to try and sell my Dad's sailboat. If you are interested in a 23' boat, older,, but in excellent condition, let me know! The price is very reasonable. Then back to Burlington on Sunday for Mother's Day.

This is all just a part of what's been going on in my life the past 2 months. Hope to get more details up soon. Next week things finally start to wind down (sort of). Should be able to get back into the blogging thing. Lately, I can't even find time for Facebook!
