This is another completed piece for the STREETS AND ROADS exhibit that utilizes the element I created and posted on March 1st. THE RED DOOR story is presented in layers taking you out to a world beyond Raven's refuge. This new format is something I am exploring. We shall see where it takes me...
THE RED DOOR measures 9-1/4H X 9-1/4W X 1-1/2D - mixed media.

A distant horizon against a starry night pull Coyote into a dream. Where might the meandering ribbon of dirt take Coyote? The dreams, if told, would tell.
COYOTE DREAMS was another piece created for the STREETS AND ROADS show at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts gallery as mentioned in previous posts. It measures 8-1/4H X 8-1/4W X 1-1/2D rendered in mixed media. Click on photo for larger image.

If you remember, I posted this rabbit as a sneak peek a couple posts back. This is the finished piece, THE OPEN WINDOW, for the STREETS AND ROADS show at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Gallery in Winslow, WA. Existing as a pull toy, rabbit sits quietly on a shelf just inside the open window. But, does rabbit contemplate this as a favorable chance to slip out through the window and up a road to adventures beyond imagination? Or does contentment to remain within a familiar world sitting on a ledge suit rabbit just fine? Options presented, choices to be made.
All my pieces are done in mixed media. THE OPEN WINDOW measures 11-1/2H X 9-1/4W X 1-1/4D. Click on the photo for a larger image.

As you can gather from viewing my works in past posts it is made up of components and elements. This raven is part of a piece I have painted for STREETS AND ROADS, a show that opens this week, Friday, at Bainbridge Arts and Crafts Gallery. The blue bird below is also an element from a piece I have painted for the same exhibit. This is a new direction for me and I am rather absorbed by it. I am anxiously awaiting some cradle boards my sister is bringing to me this week. New works . . . This is always exciting and sometimes carries some uncertainty not knowing exactly where one will end up when finished. It has been a fun exploration. If you are not near this gallery to come to the opening or visit the gallery during the show's display, come back to my blog to see the finished pieces.
