Art does not solve problems, but makes us aware of their existence.  It opens our eyes to see and our brains to imagine.                 Magdalena Abakanowicz

   I’ve been invited to participate in a group show at Disability Rights Oregon (http://www.disabilityrightsoregon.org/). I’ll show six framed paintings from the Urban Horses series. Created in 2007, the paintings are abstract representations by observation of the Portland Mounted Police Horses, off-duty, in their paddock.  I will donate 25% of the proceeds of each painting sold to DRO.  I’ll post more information soon.
