There’s still time to see my new work in person at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts. The show continues through June 27th in the Elizabeth Denison Hatch Gallery. Here’s an installation shot taken by my talented friend Carson Zullinger, an amazing photographer.
There’s a favorable review of the show on The Hunt Magazine website.
I experienced the post show blues for a few days after the opening. This is a completely normal let down after the final push of installing a show and everything that goes into promoting it. Even though I should expect this mood swing, it was difficult especially with everything else I had going on with my kids. I cleaned my studio for the opening so I took a few photos before it inevitable returns to it’s normal chaotic, working state. “Where did I put the hammer I was just using?”
Inspiration, fiber work and encaustic paintings.
Fiber pieces, encaustic paintings and silk remnants.
I’ve accomplished quite a bit since September and should feel proud of it but I’m never comfortable to sit back and relax. On Sunday I experienced some severe nerve pain in my neck that sent me to the urgent care medical center. I guess that was my body saying “slow down”. I’m busy ordering supplies and planning projects for my summer job as an art director at a camp that starts on Saturday. Meanwhile I’m still plotting how to get one more painting finished before my summer deadlines. I guess “slow down” just isn’t in my vocabulary.
