show on now at Roos arts Rosendale NY

I'm having a show at Roos Arts in Rosendale NY until September 14th. 
It's called : The grey sea and the long black land. ( from a Robert Browning poem)
Here are few quick snap shots -------- You can check out the Roos website for more pics and info : 

Oh yes hanging out with the lace makers of Burano ( Venice)

 Okay so if you ever end up in Venice - take the extra boat trip out to Burano Island and visit the Lace Museum. The museum has the most  heartbreakingly GORGEOUS brain melting lace collection and real  lace makers !  The ladies  hangout and produce the tiniest most intricate handmade Burano lace and chat and laugh and are so totally lovely. I spent a couple days drawing them and watching their impossible little "punta in aria " ( stitches in the air ).
