My intentions of writing a monthly blog have flown right out the window. And not because I haven't had things to say!! But mostly because I have been a. working b. traveling c. sick. The travel has been fun. Time with friends, family, new friends is always refreshing. The work has been fun as well. I had two back to back events in May and I find that when I work consistently at my craft, I am more inspired each day. The sick, however, has been a drag. My husband and I both have been struggling (yes that is the word) with whatever respiratory stuff that is currently in motion. We have both slowed to a turtle's pace. However, I am currently gearing up for a show in September. I was juried in to the Palisade Wine Festival! Very exciting news and I will have new work there!
I spent a week at the Idyllwild Art Center in California with two dear friends. Our instructor was Adrienne Eliades. You can find her on the web or Instagram (@bugaboo_eyes) Patient, kind, intelligent, knowledgeable, she sent me in a new direction with my work. And that is the challenge for me when I attend a workshop. How can I use this new skill in my work without completely changing up everything I have been doing? We shall see!
