Peregrinate Acrylic painting on text collage on canvas, 6"x6"

Peregrinate: Acrylic painting by Leah Palmer Preiss of peregrine falcon hiking a mountain trail with an antique suitcase. "Not all those who wander are lost."With a peculiar predilection to pack up & perambulate, this¬†peregrine has picked an impractical path perhaps, but peregrination needn’t be practical to be pleasurable.

As someone who often chooses curious & circuitous pathways over direct routes (both literally & figuratively) I can attest that getting there really is half the fun!¬†Painting the meadow in this piece for instance… possibly a slightly mad pursuit considering its tiny size & peripheral importance, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. And if you look closely at the finished piece, you may find an appropriate message from Tolkien amidst the foliage! (There’s also a bit of a nod to one of his aptly-named characters on the suitcase… can you spot it?)

I’m coming to SPX! Small Press Expo 2013

SPX

These days I’m putting my Epson R3000 to the test, churning out archival prints to bring to SPX 2013. This is my first comic convention ever– I’ve never even attended one! So I’m pretty excited to be tabling along with Isaac Cates of AlphaBots &¬†Cartozia Tales, & Sam Wolk, a fellow AlphaBotter. There will be comics, cards, prints aplenty! If any of you plan to come, please stop by our table, D8-9a, & say hello!

p.s. More AlphaBots folks will be at SPX as well– Christian Sager, Henry Eudy & Kelly Williams will be at table J10!
