Well, it has been a long time since I have stretched & framed a piece of silk, but here it is! "Printemps", 18" x 30" will be in the preview gallery for the Corrales Art Studio Tour this weekend! May 3 & 4th, 10am – 5pm each day. I will be at Tom Spross' studio 594 Applewood Road Studio locations 5, 6, & 7, with Tom Spross, & Terry Adams! Come on by!
