junk






i have been on some junking trips lately.  and i have found some good fodder.  some of these things were real bargains, and some i had to pay the price for cool.  the good news is that i am honing in on some ideas for a new series of boxes.  i think (duh) they are going to involve drawers somehow.  i don't know if i will do a box within a box, or just let the drawer be the box on its own.

some great news today.  i went to the curtis arts and humanities center in greenwood village with teresa.  we met with the gallery director there about a show.  turns out that teresa and i will have a dual show in may.  the center was originally a one-room school house back in the day.  there are two rooms on the main floor of the building.  teresa will have one room, and i will have another.  i will be showing assemblage, teresa pottery.  how exciting!!

it's a bit overwhelming, really.  so much to think about.  i know the time will fly, and the next thing i know, it will be may.  so i better start getting the ideas rolling.  and assembled!

miserable

i saw this list today on facebook, it was posted by the jealous curator, one of my favorite blogs.  it was originally created as part of the artist's survival kit, by keri smith.  click here to a link to the blog post in which it was included.  the idea was that you could print out the kit, and use it when you were ready to quit the whole art thing.  i know some of you may find this a bit negative, but for me, it truly resonates.  a sense of humor is also nice to add while reading!!

enjoy!
