What I've Been Up To

I've been busy...but not really posting anything new about the work I'm currently doing. I'm deep into collaging "Blues" imagery juxtaposed with religious icons and symbols onto the spread for The Blues Bible. It's a massive project. The spine of this book is about four inches thick. I'm on a deadline WILL be finished and part of "Blue Chapel" at the Pickens County Museum of Art. I install this solo show on Friday, June 13th! Yikes!

In the meantime, I have been posting on the Gallery 80808/Vista Studios blog. These entries are primarily picture after picture...including my installation Decisions...all held in and around the gallery space that will host CYBER FYBER next January. We had the annual, downtown spring art reception a weekend ago. This past weekend was a second event...OPEN STUDIOS...two weekends in a row of "meet and greet" the general public. I'm sort of "talked out!"

I've also been writing on "My Family Blog"...long overdue posts from my trip to England. The first post is:
Going Without Embroidery and Swan Lake
The second one is:
Texere absolutely fabulous place for fibers of all sorts...dozens of photos from this amazing experience!

I'll try to remember to shoot a few "works in progress" pictures of The Blues Bible!

Hi Susan,
I love Decisions, it looks wonderful. It touches my heart, I love the chipped paint, old, rusty, used/loved look. And I am looking forward to June and seeing your exhibit in Pickens!!
