It was neat to see all sorts of friends and strangers at the Paint-Off tonight! I've been making these little clay figurines - cartoon-people, little doodles as it were. I was the only sculptor at the Paint-Off, and people seemed to like it. I used air-dry clay for the event; I practised using air-dry by making this guy.

It's been hanging on my wall half-done for months. Last night, finally, I finished it.
(I think...)

Sunrise Songs & Twilight Tales
25 August 2007

We're having a concert. The artists of Spirit & Kitsch will be joining us, preparing art that reflects the music that will be displayed during the reception afterwards.
I will be playing my dear viola, playing Bach's joyful C major 3rd solo cello suite - that's where the "Sunrise Songs" comes from. After spending so long on the d minor 2nd suite, a very contemplative, dark piece, and it's now wonderful to emerge into the light with the 3rd.
Beth Faulstick, a soprano and Ithaca College student, will sing Bach's spring-like "Mein Glaubiges Herze" from the Cantata BMV 68. The bass-line dances along while the singer rejoices!
Finally, Sam Welsh and I will play Schumann's Märchenbilder, Fairy Tale pictures for viola and piano -- alternately creepy, beautiful, magical piece. The last movement is the sweetest, gentlest goodnight wish ever!
We might add a couple little bits - Swedish folk songs or Vivaldi airs - but it's not going to be a huge concert. Just a lovely, short, late August fun concert, celebrating the end of summer and the beginning of a new season of music and art.

Here's the piece I did for the Ithaca Festival Paint-off.
It's on display in the show in the old Night & Day store on the Ithaca Commons for the next month or two.

For the Spirit and Kitsch "Seeing Color" show going up at the Tompkins County Public Library on Green Street April 5th-May 30th. Check it out if you're in town!

The word they assigned me to paint a picture of was "Exposed". Everyone has to make a work of art "describing" a word using colour in a grid pattern. Promises to be cool...
