I’m probably more Goth than I would like. Cute things drinking and smoking and killing themselves is where I’m at. The story with this: When I was young I had a job telemarketing for the Cincinnati Symphony, one of the people I had to call was Drew McDade. I always liked the name, imagined he did porn etc.. and all these many years later he appears again with a bunny.
Thought this interview with the Stained Glass Garden was interesting. This will be displayed at my show in June. Opening June 10th 5-7pm Stained Glass Garden

The yard is wild. We’ve had a lot of rain and it’s gone crazy. I do not have enough time to work on it. Walked out there today and amid the wild California poppies these red poppies have come up randomly in odd places. I don’t know where they came from. Not there last year or the year before. They make me sort of happy in spite of how out of control it is.
My show at the Stained Glass Garden in Berkeley opens June 10, 5-7pm. I will be the featured artist for June. What they wanted was my small antique framed pieces. Inspired by a vintage image and an antique frame these are classic stained glass panels.
So I had a few done. One frame left and I created a panel for it. However, I made it the wrong size and it did not fit. The panel itself proved difficult and went together awkwardly. I liked it and thought the awkwardness made it seem more medeival. So back to the frame – I searched online and came up empty. I decided to make one. It took me awhile to figure out an idea of what to do. Using scrap moulding from my studio, I came up with this. It needed to look old to go with the others and be free standing.
