Earth Hour: it's tonight - please join us for the sake of Earth

Tonight, March 29, 2008 at 8 p.m. (8 pm to 9 pm wherever you live) join millions of Earth residents in making a statement about climate change by turning off your lights for Earth Hour, an event created by the World Wildlife Fund Climate change project.

Better yet, turn off all non-essential electricity in your home of workplace for at least that one hour. Experience the quiet of no-electricity!


Little Bird Art Studio is Open

I recently fell in love with a wonderful oddly shaped space on a business-neighboorhood street about five blocks from our house. I have rented the space, moved my art "stuff" into it and am in the process of setting it up as an art studio. I'm planning to spend about half a day there every day -- with no computer, no telephone, and no client-meetings. Just time to devote to my artwork, something I have been craving for years.

So ... I am going to be sharing photos of the progress of "setting up" as well as artworks in-progress as time passes. I'll probably start posting here on Land of Little Rain, but watch for a whole new blog and Etsy store for Little Bird Studio at some point in the near future. I hope to begin offering my work for sale on the web, through my Etsy store real soon.

In the meantime, I have a solo-exhibit opening next week in a small showroom space in downtown Helena. I will be exhibiting 6 of my limited edition large prints for 3 months.

I also plan to have a regular open-studio evenings beginning in a month or two. Those might be every other week or just one a month.

Thank you to all of my blog readers and flickr commenters who have, over the years, encouraged me to get back into my artwork in a serious way. Your feedback and inspiration have been invaluable. Thank you!
