The two latest entries in the Out On A Limb series are on 8-inch round, cradled wood panels.
Maybe it was something about hitting OOAL 30 that made me want to change it up. 
I bought a half dozen of the round panels a while back, thinking that, sooner or later,
I'd like to try new shape. The pieces still combine black-and-white and color images of birds, 
but that's about to change, too ... I've been collecting images of people with birds and mulling
over just how to use them.

The pair were created for HUE, the annual summer group exhibition at gallery One One -
the gallery at Brazee Street Studios. This year, the color is blue and these two will join 
three other pieces from the series at the opening 6-9 p.m. Friday May 11 - yes, 
during our Open Studios.

Since my new studio is right across the hall from the gallery, it makes it super easy to pop in
after viewing the exhibit!
