Art I'm Making: Untitled Collage No. 109 (Santa Rosa)

I've been taking a break from my comparatively intense activity as a collage maker in the past two years and I've been lazy about posting the newest ones. Here's a fairly new piece, Untitled Collage No. 109 (Santa Rosa), from early July. It's currently up in my show going on at The Spinster Sisters until October 4, 2015. Acrylic on paper, acrylic monoprint, collage. Image size: 14.6 x 18.7cm. Matted to 16 x 20 inches. Signed on reverse and on the mat. I didn't think about it at the time, but this a rather elemental piece using black, white, and the three primary colors.

Rain: First Substantial Rain of the Season (September 16, 2015)

We had odd mists of rain on a couple of days in July and in August this year--which is extremely unusual--but it was too little to make much of a difference--only 0.10 inches. Yesterday and last night (September 16) we had the first real rain of  the 2015-2016 rain season--0.4 inches in the rain gauge this morning. Let's hope that the start of a heavy rainy season. I hope the rain last night helped the firefighters up north, but I've seen no news. So far, the total for this year stands at 0.5 inches.
