The Big Day

Well, this is it! The facade of my studio has been painted (despite the rainiest season I can ever remember) the side wall has not - it's exposed to the rain.

The studio has been cleaned some furniture rearranged and we set up our displays last night. Jenny will be bringing the nibbles over in a little while and we "open the doors" in less than an hour. I hope we get a nice steady flow of people, but it's already raining and thunder storms are on the way. Will they keep people at home or encourage them to come out and look at art? Who knows...

I'll get photos and post again tonight.

Cloth and Clay a creative friendship

Friendships come in many forms, on Saturday June 20th you are invited to come and see how well cloth and clay work and play together.

The cloth will be represented by my dolls and the clay is the work of my friend Jenny Davies-Reazor. I am in awe of her tiles and shrines, not to mention her collages.

The studio will be open from 10am until 5pm, and is located at 106. N. Main St. St. Georges DE

My Studio

It's taken a while, years in fact, but with paitence, some nagging and a lot of hard work I finally have a place dedicated to making art. I can actually walk out of the house into a quiet space or one filled with the sounds I've chosen and no Sponge Bob, computer games or other sounds generated by my kids. It has quickly become my favorite room!

In honor of this stupendous moment I'm teaming up with my friend Jenny Davies-Reazor
and we are mounting our own mini show and opening the doors to the world. On June 20th, just one week from now, we will join our creative energies and our work and with some luck we will increase our visibility as artists. I can't wait to see what the day brings.

Computers can't live with them can't live without them

OK so some lessons should be so obvious you don't need to learn them the hard way, but...
Before you do anything else BACK UP your computer! Without warning a couple of weeks ago we suffered an impossible to diagnose fatal computer malady. We did get most files backed up onto our new external hard drive but alas I lost all my photos! Thousands of photos gone - poof! I'm slowly recovering and slowly getting to know my brand new laptop. It took about a week but I've retaken photos of most of my newest projects (the ones not yet listed to Etsy). Alas vacation shots, school concerts and other kids events all gone. I'd add a picture to this post but sadly I don't have much edited yet.

SO, if you do nothing else today back up your files!
