NEWS AND NEW PIECES

I have been creating some new glass pieces, taking breaks to tend the yard and home front.  There is always something to do when the yard is big and the house is old.  I am not complaining as I like being out doors and I like the house, warts and all.

I will have some of my work in two different galleries:

510 Museum & ARTspace, 510 1st St, Lake Oswego.  The show is entitled Mothers & Makers an exhibition celebrating female creativity and leadership in our community”.  Gallery hours are Tues-Fri 11AM-4PM.  The show runs May 1-22nd.  Opening reception will be Friday May 1st 5-7PM, all are welcome.

Three Rivers Gallery and Gifts, 613 SE 7th St, Oregon City inside Singer Hill Cafe. Gallery hours Tues-Sun 9AM-4PM.  The gallery rotates in new artists every two moths so my work will be there through the end of June.

I have limited my festival participation this year.  I am still waiting to hear from a few shows,but so far I will be in:

The Lake Oswego Art in the Park, June 26-28.  This show has been going on for many years and is an annual tradition for many.

Gresham Arts Festival, July 18. I really enjoy this one day event.  A real festival atmosphere, with music, food, great art and the farmer’s market as well.

I will update as more information becomes available!

Spring is here! I have been planting and fertilizing and sneezing!  I live in the Pacific NW, one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It also has a very high pollen count.  I am so blessed  to live here and antihistamines are so helpful.

It’s been awhile but here I am!

It is time to start thinking about spring, don’t you think?  This has been a rough winter for so many, hang in there!

After some time off, I am back into the creative mode and producing some new work.  I enjoy trying out different techniques.  I take classes to refresh my creativity and add new flavor to my pieces.  I keep thinking I should have a “style” but every time I learn something new, I need to explore that for awhile.  The constant in my pieces is color and light.

I have sent in applications to the shows I hope to be a part of this year.  Of course I will not know which ones until the acceptance emails come.  I am hoping for the best.  Last year I participated in 9 shows, crazy, huh?.  I did that to see what direction I should take in the future.  I learned a lot from that experience and will see what this year teaches me.

Dog walk, etc.

Took our dog for a walk the other day.  That doesn’t sound all that exciting, people walk their dogs all the time.  But, you see, we have a “tightly wrapped” dog who is now doing a lot better on Prozac.  Now, some of you may find this troubling, medicating a dog.  Our dear Moxie, was rescued off the L.A. streets and we adopted her from the OR Humane Society.  She is a Schnauzer mix and a real love.   We have an acre fenced yard and every two hours (she lets us know within 5 minutes of the time) we exercise her by hitting tennis balls from one corner of the yard to the other.  She sprints after the balls until she finally lies down, tongue hanging out, showing she is done.  This goes on from morning until evening.  Because of this high energy, Moxie has not done well on a leash in the past.  Did I say she also “talks” loudly?   So, back to the walk.  Moxie had to go to the vet to get her shots updated.  There is a note in the chart warning the vets that she is “mouthy” and needs to be muzzled during exams.  The vet asked me about Moxie’s teeth, not wanting to experience the “alligator mouth” as she called it.  She did a lot better this time, didn’t bite and less talking.  After the vet, we went for our walk around Oregon City.  We took a trail that looked down on Willamette Falls, beautiful.  Moxie only growled at 2 men who were smoking, she growled and then sneezed from the smoke.  Moxie and I walked 3 miles, beautiful day and the Prozac seems to be working!

So, I have had a great art season.  I participated in 9 art shows and also have my pieces in the Three Rivers Artist Guild Gallery now through the end of December.  I learned a lot, that was the reason for the heavy schedule.  I wanted to find out what I should do in the future, both in the shows I do and in the work I do.  I also met some wonderful and inspiring people along the way.  I have learned so much from fellow artists and from the public.

The studio is clean, the kilns are prepped and I am ready to create.
