September will always seem like the start of a new year – and this one has lots happening!

Looking Back, Looking Out, Looking In 

Friday, August 31 is the last day to see“Looking Back, Looking Out, Looking In”  at the Humboldt Art Gallery. This was a two person show with work by Jess Richter along with my watercolour batiks. Saturday we go to dismantle it. Thanks to the Humboldt Gallery for being great to work with and to everyone who has been to see it!
