Three new Lancet Windows

(Above:  Lancet Windows CC (left, inventory # 4045) and CCI (right, inventory # 4046).  Each piece is framed at 31" x 11" outer dimensions.  Each is priced at $395.  Click on any image in this blog post to enlarge.)

The mad dash is on!  I'm trying my best to finish up loose ends, complete waiting custom picture framing orders, and think about what needs to be packed for my National Park art residency at Homestead National Monument in Nebraska.  I leave bright-and-early on Sunday morning.  Excited!

I've finished and framed three new Lancet Windows and am trying to get several, small "Windows" constructed and stitched before I leave.  Their melting, mounting, and framing can be done after I return.  It is nice to return to waiting work.  Such a plan helps avoid procrastination.

I also got very good news today.  My work, In Box CCLXI, is currently on view at the Lincoln Center's 35th New Legacies: Contemporary Art Quilts and won the Award for Creative Innovation. I mailed my w-9 in order to receive the cash prize!   I'm elated.

Other news:  After several years of being asked to write about the Columbia dance scene for Jasper Magazine and blog, I finally accepted.  I had an important stipulation.  I will not be writing as a "dance critic".  My viewpoint will be as an "expert audience member".  I have several articles in mind that will hopefully increase my community's desire to see dance.  I've lined up several opportunities to see various productions and events.  It should be an interesting experience.  I'm very happy that I am being taken seriously for my abilities to put words together!
