This time of year always makes me reflective. When I find pockets of quiet in between the busy craziness, they are just a little more introspective than usual. It’s 4am and there is a dusting of powdered sugar snow outside and I am filled with the nervous energy of â€œto doâ€ lists and show preparation and the secret excitement of the season that is filled with so many changes this year.
The past six months have been a whirlwind… exciting and challenging commissions, a crazy renovation that levitated my garage, a fellowship application and all the nervousness sealed alongside it in the envelope. Losing a job and launching a business. Meeting the man of my dreams and his crazy little dog. I used to be able to see out my personal windshield to the curving roads ahead, but not recently. It’s been like driving through a fog, eyes wide and nervous but appreciating the loveliness, not knowing what would happen until it was there in front of me.
This weekend I am gearing up for ArtCraft (details below) â€“ please do stop by if you’re able! I will have lots of work available; more than I’ve ever had in any one place. Lots of new pieces, even ornaments, which are barely days old (p.s. these are in limited supply, so if you would like me to save you one, click on the picture or email me!) If you come by, please say hello :}Â It’s always a lovely show and and exciting time.Â You’ll find me on the 6th floor with a ton of other lovely artists — look for me in the middle room.
Until then, I will be finishing and packing and and attending to details……………………..
With much love,
