Reception for the 8×8 Art for the Heart Gallery (with a Twist)

The twist this year is that artwork did not have to be 8″ x 8″ or even square. 100 artists, 150 artworks, the Corrine Woodman Gallery full of little wonders. I love this kind of shows for all the different styles and subjects gracing the same square surfaces, but breaking free from the traditional squares made the this show look even more interesting. The reception yesterday marked the official beginning of the Art for the Heart fundraiser. More info here:

Sunrise Tree for Twitter Art Exhibit 2023

Good Morning – black ink and colored pencil, 7″ x 5″

Sent my 7″ x 5″ contribution off to Canada today. It is colored pencil and black ink on mixed media paper. It will benefit Urban Native Youth Association. UNYA has a philanthropic goal of $6 million to build the Native Youth Centre. Every contribution they receive will help them create a community of caring in support of Indigenous youth.

If you are in Vancouver, BC, or close enough to make a trip, here are the dates for the live TAE show at The Pipe Shop:

Opening Reception: June 24, 1-8 pm PDT
Exhibition Continues: June 25, 11 am-6 pm PDT

Please head to TAE’s RSVP page if you plan to attend either day.

Online Sale will be held Jun 26 – Jul 24, 2023, at https://www.twitterartexhibit.org/.

And no, I am not a sunrise person, so my knowledge of that time of the day is mostly theoretical. I was planning a sunset, but the drawing had its own idea, and I went with that. Arguments usually do not lead to a good result.


This year’s beneficiary of the Twitter Art Exhibit is Urban Native Youth Association.

We strive to empower Indigenous youth to make positive changes in their lives by offering a wide range of services, resources, and opportunities.


In everything we do here at UNYA, we take into account an understanding of trauma, aim to accept youth without judgment, and respect youth as experts in their own lives.

Last Traces of Fog – sold at #TAE20

Last Traces of Fog ~ colored pencils and ink, 12 x 16 cm

My little drawing has been sold at the Twitter Art Exhibit’s opening night in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The wonderful curator for #TAE20, Debanjana Bhattacharjee, gave it a permanent happy home!

The 10th Twitter Art Exhibit that this year is helping Horry County Disabilities & Special Needs. Watch the opening ceremony here: https://www.twitterartexhibit.org/live.

It’s always takes a lot of work to organize a big art show, but this year is extra challenging because of the pandemic and many uncertainties that came with it. I am very grateful for everyone who volunteered their time and talent to help with #TAE20.

The 2021 call for artists just opened, and a new cycle of creating and helping has began! I can’t wait to be a part of it again.

Dropped my contribution to the Art Gallery for Art for the Heart that benefits Center for the Arts in Corvallis. I am not sure if the show will be an actual physical one or online only like many others. I haven’t been to the place since way before the pandemic, and it was so nice to walk in and enjoy the current show and new things in their gift shop. It was almost normal. Almost.

Three 5” x 5” drawings make the “Delicate Beginnings” little series. It would be four, but the forth one became a casualty of forgetting to cover the ink drawing with final fixative before attempting to mount it on top of the tissue paper with pastels and powdered bone. It will require heavy touch-up and maybe adding some color to the foal. I am not sure about color yet, but it’s a possibility. Maybe all four would benefit from some color.

These two new artworks were delivered yesterday to the 6 x 6 x 6 art show at the Alberta Street Gallery. Artists were free to create whatever they wanted as long as their art fit within 6″ x 6″ x 6″, and my choice was to do something related to spring that was all around me already.

I’ve spent more time experimenting with background collages than actually drawing and had to stop experiments at some point while I still had time to finish the pieces. It was fun, and I now have notes to continue playing with new ideas as time permits.

The Alberta Street Gallery is located at 1829 NE Alberta Street, Portland, OR (directions)

The show is open March 1-22, 2020, Monday – Friday 11 am – 7 pm, Saturdays 9 am – 9 pm, Sundays 9 am – 5 pm.
