On the road

We are on our way to hang 60 paintings in Madison!

I have many memories of August 15 in Madison, moving from one apartment to the next and leaving/finding things on the side of the road. I wonder what treasures we will find along the way today. And I wonder who will find all the paintings we hang. I’ve never hung this many paintings in one day or in one place before. So excited.

All the Madison Paintings

When I line up all the paintings that will be going to Madison, Wisconsin, I love that it looks like a patchwork quilt. The paintings aren’t actually sewn together here, but there is¬†thread stitched into each painting to add texture, detail, and a feeling of warmth. I’ll be hanging all of them across the city of Madison this weekend with a little help from friends and family. As always, I hope these paintings¬†offer the finders a sense of surprise and joy.

Thank you to the Awesome Foundation-Madison for the grant that makes this Madison project possible!
