The last gasp of summer art

So much (art) to see, so much to do in August before we buckle down to the serious business of fall.

For a few more days at ArtXchange Gallery, you can let June Sekiguchi's  "Waterfall" wash over you...

"Waterfall" at ArtXchange Gallery until August 27, 2016.

The Seattle Art Fair is long gone, but good news -- you still have two more weekends to be floored by the contemporary Northwest art at "Out of Sight."

And I've dived deep into all the gorgeousness.

But I'm backing away now, before I start comparing my ideas unfavorably to theirs. Which is just one of many ways to feel miserable as an artist.

So though I hope you go and see my work at the Centennial Center Gallery -- before August 29th! -- I hope you won't see much of me for awhile. Things to do, stuff to make... you understand.
