...well, not literally (at least not this week anyway...making pies in my house happens quite often though, especially during blackberry season in July and August). I happen to like Patty Griffin's song, "Making Pies" and, as part of my "Women in Water" series, I made a "Making Pies" rendition. A little surreal, I know. But here it is, with the song just below.

In more local news, I am really excited to announce that an installation of my Radium Girls art will appear in downtown Pittsburgh's Cultural District in January 2014. Hooray! I'm working on the pieces that will be part of the exhibition now. More on this to come...exciting details on the where will follow soon, I promise!
Also, (so much good news!) some of my Women in Water works will appear in an upcoming issue of Boxcar Poetry Review. I am so honored to be part of this wonderful online literary journal!
And finally, I've started making linocuts, and I've applied to join the Pittsburgh Print Group, so I can join other printmakers. It's been years since I've made prints, and although I've used some etchings and aquatints as the basisfor some of the work that now hangs at GalleriE CHIZ, I haven't actually made any new prints until last week, when we got home from vacation. It's a new-ish and exciting medium for me and the possibilities seem endless.
Now, some pictures....

fantastic anniversary dinner.

Ridge Mountains in there, but our heads are sort of in the way. :-)
