I'm back!

Didn't mean to be away so long, but the solo show and ARTEAST snapped up much of my time this fall, and since I last posted I acquired a new computer (the old one died a slow death) for which I have to update the camera software for downloads.  At last one is taken care of, but the bulk of my art exhibits are on the big camera which is still untouchable. 

I plan to share the pics from the solo exhibit on a new page coming soon.  In the meantime I'd like you to see the largest piece I've ever attempted.  This piece was made specifically for the tall wall at Kaskaskia College.  In September I posted about another piece, Round Bales, which at the time was the largest piece I'd made.  This one tops that one by nearly 5 feet.

  1. Ah, I would say this is quite successful :)
    Just lovely.

  2. That's a gorgeous work of art, Pat!

    Congratulations on having been forced by circumstance to get a new computer. One never likes to lose an trusted old friend, but it is always nice to have the opportunity to explore the potential inherent in the most recent software, especially for photographic images!

    And a sincere, if belated, Happy Birthday! to you, too. Thank you so much for your nod to my own birthday! And Happy Impending Year-End Holidays!!!

  3. well hello friend! How nice to hear from you Ms. Pliers. I am so far behind in posting. Hope to get a series of the Kaskaskia show up on its own page soon so you can see the true scale of the work.

    As for the new computer I'm still getting used to the WIDE screen and the ultra overloaded Windows 7 software. The bells and whistles and I don't get along all the time. But the high definition for photo work is wonderful.
    Which reminds me, I promised to scan and photoshop some family photos before Christmas so I'd better get busy!

    I hope you got all you wished for on your wish hasn't been granted yet--slight delay--might come true this weekend!

    Happy Holidays to you too--in that far away exotic land where you live. Ah, to visit one day. Wouldn't that be nice?
