Happy Spring! It’s been such a long time since I’ve written, and I wanted to give you an update on what I’ve been doing in my quiescence. I hope you are enjoying some sunshine. It’s toasty in my apartment today even with the windows open. I’ve got bread baking, and the scent makes me swoon. Mostly, I’ve been wrestling with my unwieldy dream of being a full-time, interdisciplinary artist–it just refuses to die so I’ve decided to get back on my bicycle and pedal really, really hard again…just because.
Knitting performance and installation starts up again in just 10 days!
I am on the home stretch! This is the fourth year in a row of holding the space at 16th and Taylor and it’s been a powerful, heart-opening experience, as you know. I expect to complete the project this year. Stay tuned for the closing celebration!
I’ve been pregnant with paintings. Most of this work is never going to make it into a gallery, but it’s been fun and soul-nurturing work–and I’ve fallen in love with portrait painting again after a long hiatus. I would love to do some commissions !
This is my adorable niece and nephew, Bailey and Jethro. (Hopefully some day they will form a bluegrass band together with those great Southern names.)
Finally, I’ve been strung out and crazy with excitement over my new cards. I partnered with the talented people at Lithtex Printers in Bellingham to create 900 of my most beautiful cards yet…It feels like these cards could finally go big now that I no longer have to spend hours hunched over a color copier!
On the other hand, things have been dead on my etsy shop front…
Er, probably because I haven’t been telling anyone about it! It really needs some TLC. Anyone want to give my shop a Facebook “Like” here
? Everything helps!
I’ve given my blog a makeover. Yeah, it was sad to say goodbye to the cute girl with heartshaped glasses but it’s a lot easier to explore now, and you can see my artwork and prints (and even read my resume, if you are really, really bored.) I also renewed my commitment to give you an ads free blog by paying wordpress a secret sum. Really guys? Well, I’m really grateful for such a gorgeous design so I guess I shouldn’t complain…
Also, I’m offering my cards at these local businesses:
Skagit Community Co-op | Bellingham Community Co-op | The Lightcatcher | The Garden Spot
The Gift Nook at Saint Joe’s Medical Center
Thanks for journeying with me. I promise to blog more regularly soon!
