OH WOW. I had no intentions of being gone so long. But I assure you it is for a good reason.
Several months ago I was asked if I would like to do a show for a local Tacoma Gallery . For the past several months ( actually lost count at about 6) I have been locked away in my studio preparing for the upcoming event. I had committed to doing at least 10 pieces, but obviously the more the better. I finally had to stop at 13. Thirteen is a good lucky number to end on I think.
I am excited to get back to blogging. I’ve missed it so. I have so much to share – all of it good! Well, there have been a few little bumps, but I feel a need to keep things positive around here.
Being this is my first post after a long absence, I’d like to just start with some shameless self promotion by giving a little peek of some of the pieces I put together for the show. I will definitely be writing more about the process and what I have learned from doing this particular body of work. I can’t begin to tell you how many times I doubted myself and was ready to call it quits. Especially the last month and a half. With all that has been going on in the world, I found myself questioning myself more than usual about the meaning of all this. The time I spent completely consumed and immersed in this body of work left me feeling so selfish at times and also a little lonely…. ack… that will all be told in good time.
For now, I’ll just share this little bit.
Happy Father’s Day Weekend to you all!
