     Maybe you’ve noticed June’s posts have been more informational than reflective. That’s because it’s crunch time for my visual arts  project, The Acorn Contains the Tree. The title is borrowed from James Hillman’s book, The Soul’s Code. I’m spending hours in the studio finishing paintings and an installation piece. The show opens July 2nd and runs through July 30th. 

     I’ve been working on this project with Portland artist and PNCA faculty member, Rhoda London. The show will be installed at Pacific Northwest College of Art in 214 Gallery (upstairs).
