At the end of each month I take an hour or so to reflect upon my work - past loves and those currently in the queue to work up.  Since the first of the year I've been very busy with the "peripherals" of my craft - shows @ UBCC, The Commons and Whidbey Island Center for the Arts (WICA), and most recently setting up a permanent exhibit @ The Whidbey Art Gallery in Langley, WA.  I realized that I haven't taken as much time as I'd like creating new work - which is what keeps me in joy and balance!!!  Well, I took care of that over the past week and have been very busy in the studio!  Check out THIS LINK for a hodgepodge of new work.  And click HERE for my June Showcase: Intimate Portraits, Man and Beast.  Enjoy!

Reverence & Doubt Art Show Kicks Off WICA Theater Series Performance

Art Reception ~ Friday, April 6th at 6:00 p.m.
In the Lobby at WICA • Free & Open to the Public

WICA will host “Reverence,” an exhibit of works by local artists (listed below), with an art reception Friday evening in the lobby. This fabulous art show serves as a prelude on the opening night of Doubt, A Parable, by John Patrick Shanley,

“Reverence” will remain in the WICA lobby until the end of April.

“Reverence” curator Cary Jurriaans says this about the art show:
“In our society, where movement is constant, the visual arts are revered as it gives us time for some pure and serene stillness that cannot be found elsewhere. In my opinion, the goal of the artist is to create beauty.”

A recent write-up for my new exhibit @
WICA April 6 - 21!

The work of Clinton photographer Sandy Rubini has been described as surreal,
ethereal, sensual and translucent.

"At no other time am I more completely present than when I have a camera in my hand," says Sandy. "Creativity is a direct portal to the divine living in each one of us."

Sandy’s most recent work from her “Divinity” series explores the “light versus dark” aspects of spirituality,taking her from the backcountry of Mt. Baker, the banks of the Columbia River, a forgotten cemetery on San Juan Island, and places in between.

Enjoy Sandy’s “Divinity” series during the “Reverence” Exhibit at WICA.

Flourish and Decay

Shiprock No. 1

"Am I willing to give up what I have in order to be what I am not yet? Am I able to follow the spirit of love into the desert? It is a frightening and sacred moment. There is no return. One's life is changed forever. It is the fire that gives us our shape." ~Mary Richards
