My show at The Chapel is coming up in just under three weeks time on May 14th. And it will be surprising to none of my family and friends that I still have a lot of work to do. I need to finalize selections and print and frame them. I need to print up some haiku and frame these as well.
Fair warning: most of the haiku pieces will be visually rather plain (calligraphy costs a lot), but there is one piece that I am splurging on, by having Paper Birds work up about a 16×20 piece. Below is a section of a test piece with the colors and layout I asked for, but with only rough calligraphy. It is interesting to commission a piece and collaborate with another artist to work out details. I am eager to see how it turns out!
