Leslie Weibeler, one of my favorite local artists, is up to something great involving some characters named Fergus and Leona. If George Herriman's brain was transplanted into Kandinsky's body this might be the result. See more on her flickr account.

Nancy Rosen's Spring Sale
My lovely real life mother is once again having a spring sale this weekend. She needs to make room for new work so she is clearing out many nice pieces and unique odds and ends spilled on to paper, fabric, wood and ceramics. It's a great chance to find some great art and gifts at amazing prices. I should be hanging around most of Sunday, hope to see you there!
