maybe you've noticed that the last few paintings haven't been for sale. that's because i'm working on a series of illustrations for bellingham's subdued stringband jamboree. who knows: these drawings might be on a poster, or maybe a ticket, a coaster, or maybe even a t-shirt. but mostly, they're just a gift, a thank you, inspired by the enormously talented and supportive music community of this region, a community of players and listeners and venues that work really hard and give it everything they've got, for nothing more than the love of music and the joy it spreads. there are few causes more worthy.
