Work, work, work! Stitch, stitch, stitch! And some fun!

Sometimes I wish I had one of those big, fancy digital cameras with detachable lens.  They don't fit in my purse though!  My friend Ashleigh Burke took this photo of my studio with her wide angle lens.  It makes it look much larger than it is....more spacious.  Believe me.  My studio is small and getting smaller as the work piles up in anticipation of my solo show in Charleston this September.  (Photos can all be enlarged!)

To add to the excitement, I was recently offered a solo show at the Florence Regional Arts Alliance!  (That's Florence, SOUTH CAROLINA, of course!)  "Last Words" will be on view at 412 South Dargan Street from August 5 - 26, 2010.  There's even a reception on the evening of the fifth!  Below is another photo taken by Ashleigh Burke.  It is "Last Words".....from my show this past February.  It will be quite challenging to create a quite, sacred place in this new setting because I've never actually been there!  My son Mathias doesn't know it yet....but he's helping me!  He'll be visiting for two weeks.  He was also recently promoted to "First Artist" at Birmingham Royal Ballet!  (That's a link to the "official" company announcement!)

I was also recently offered another opportunity!  Selected Decision Portraits will be on view in the lobby of Warehouse Theater in Greenville, South Carolina from January 21 through February 12, 2011 during the run of "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolfe".  Greenville is quite an artsy town and the play is one of my favorites.  Allen Coleman, the executive director of the Pickens County Museum (and also an accomplished artist) recommended me for this.  Thanks Allen!

It's a busy summer!  Thank goodness I can ZIP around town on my moped!  These were "staged" photos.  I'm generally wearing a helmet!
