So...in true Di fashion...it's been several months since I've checked in. Ahem. Well, here's a quick update....quick because I have deadlines, baby!
First off....I have a piece in this year's Star Wars show at Good: a gallery. Scott Foster has curated yet another great collection of all things Star Wars. It's a great show and I'm so happy to be a small part of it. Check it out, it will hang for the rest of May. Deets at this link...... http://goodpdx.com
I have a painting hanging at the Arbor Lodge Coffee shop right now. They are having their annual Sasquatch show. It's also a contest. If you are in the neighborhood, check it out...have a great cuppa coffee and vote for your favorite rendition of Big foot. If you vote for mine, well, THANK YOU! haha!

I am currently painting my little brains out to prepare for two shows I've been invited to participate in. The first one is a Dragon Boat themed show. This has the added excitement of being a sanctioned event of the Portland Rose Festival, and I am so honored that I am included. This show is the Brain child of the uber talented Alea Bone, and her hard work is so appreciated!! Deets for this for this show can be found at this link.... www.rosefestival.org/event/dragon-boat-art-show
I have also been invited to submit 8 paintings for the 88 Strong Show at The Goodfoot Art Bar and Lounge. (2845 SE Stark) So honored to be considered one of the "88 strong"! 88 artists get eight 8" X 8" boards and are given a choice of 88 themes. All pieces are priced at $50 each at this awesome cash and carry show. This show opens on June 25, at The Goodfoot. Doors open promptly at 5pm and the event will go on till midnight. It's always a fun event with DJ, tons of cool art, interesting people, and beer. I will post more details about this show as the event gets closer.
Finally, for something completely different....
I was extremely honored to be approached by my friend, Fred Swan, to write an essay for his very cool web zine. Fred is a fantastic artist and author, and he is also a mentor to so many of us artists here in Portland. Here is a link to his website, and my essay....enjoy.... http://fredrickswan.com/knee-deep-in-spring/
