Larry and Molly's latest piece for the 17th Annual Box Show

One again we faced the challenge of the dreaded blank box for the annual Gallery Route One Box Show.

Here's what we came up with this year.

Rough sketches

And inking the pencil drawings

and cutting out the forms for adhering to the box

   The dreaming boy is adhered with gel medium to basswood and cut out.

                                                Here's the flip side

                                                  Molly paints the box.

                                             As you can see she's in a hurry.

                                                        and here's a side view

The Box Show at Gallery Route One runs from July 24th to September 13th. The reception is Sunday, July 26th, 3-5pm.

Coming soon --the 17th annual Box Show

Every year (for more years than we can remember) Molly and I have participated in the annual Box Show at Gallery Route One in Pt. Reyes Station, Marin County, California.

We're currently puzzling our way through our newest one (stay tuned). The group show will run from July 24th until September 13. The reception will be Sunday, July 26, 3-5pm.

Here's a trailer put together by the good folks at Gallery Route One.

And here's another:

Molly and Larry go to the Fair

This year Molly and I entered pieces in the 74th annual Marin County Fair art show. It's a juried show with apparently around 3000 applicants, so we're very pleased to be included.

I entered my linocut print of Howard 'Louie Bluie' Armstong.

Here’s Molly with her current painting “Banjo Shaw” (a portrait of Richard Shaw). (It was difficult to get a good shot of Molly and the painting. Below is another photo showing the entire piece with banjo neck).

I was very pleased to discover that my blockprint of the late blues master, Pinetop Perkins, won an Honorable Mention award in printmaking.
