Teepees and Roofs

After a wonderful week in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming I am back to work on my drawings.  While there I was inspired by the teepee frame in the meadow behind the cabin where we stayed and the roofs on the ranger station in the distance.  These two drawings reflect these forms, abstracted and promoted by the patterns and color that emanate from the structures.

Many Thanks to the Coloring Volunteers!!!

After speaking on the Untitled Art Show about my Powers of Ten series, I've been thinking again about the wonderful individuals who helped me out with all of the coloring that had to be done for this series.  As I ran out of time to finish the drawings on my own, so many people came to help.  The coloring circles were amazing gatherings, and I was thrilled with how much everyone enjoyed the activity.  Adults love coloring and thrive in the meditative process.   Here are some photos of these tremendous individuals.

I think I managed to get an image of everyone - my incredibly supportive and infinitely loving Mom and Dad; my patient, encouraging and spectacular husband Mathias Leppitsch; my great great friend Jessica Riquetti who came out from Oakland to help; Tallie Dietz who tirelessly helped many many days and hours upon hours at a time; Liz Green who dedicated so many hours and much enthusiasm; Sabin Aell and Randy Rushton, Rachel Prago, Chase DeForest, Libby Saeger, Jamie Marchbank, Philip May, Gretchen Schaefer, Rebecca Peebles, Cindy Frigard, Jeremiah Hueske, John Grimberg, Jose Medina, Janice Schindler, Andi Todaro, Adam Gildar, Sander Lindeke, Owen Gordon, Whitney Stephens and Lindsay Roome.  You are all such generous, creative and joyful people.  I am so happy to have you in my community!  Thank you!

LIVE on the Untitled Art Show Tonight!

I'll be on the Untitled Art Show tonight at 8pm MST which is a weekly, internet talk-radio show focused on visual art and the visual art world.
