How strong is your need for 'cognitive closure'?

After the Open Studio and special silent auction this year, I love to see my work going to new homes.

"More than any other group of organisms, birds stimulate both sides of our brain with their bewildering diversities in song, color, display, flight style and migratory stamina. On the one hand, because they are accessible models of basic biological principles, they are subjects of our drive to deduce the laws of nature through science. On the other hand, they are featured in centuries of humanist art and poetry because they evoke our emotions, connecting us spiritually with nature. Both of these calls on our consciousness are vital in their roles as beacons of environmental health."

I've been driving myself to distraction trying to write a fresh version of my artist statement for 2 weeks. I'm a mess, but today I came across this handy artist statement generator. ;)

I like the idea that when you are looking at an original work of art, you're engaging in "a sort of magical thinking".

Sometimes it's nice to see paintings just hanging on the walls. Here are a couple of pieces that will be shown during my Open Studio this fall. 'Moonrise' and 'Trois Ellipses'.
