After a couple of days to chill (and an afternoon acknowledging that this is actually the holiday season, plus two annual vet visits), I’ve been working full-tilt on three projects, portions of which I delayed during the residency; it’s all been inching forward and everything will be finally resolved and sent out this weekend. Plus, I am getting ready for 2015’s first show…
…unpacking the works from their crates so that they can all be stacked gently in a single load in my car in their bubble wrap, and tweaking a brand-new piece from this year’s Ragdale residency that will also be shown here. All of it will be delivered and installed on Monday. (And I’ve also been in e-mail conference about two new upcoming 2015 shows that appeared in my inbox this week.)
Meanwhile, ZIA Gallery’s annual winter group show has been going great for me, and in the past few weeks, several works have found new homes:
Another grouping of these Exo Studies were purchased; I think only one or two remain at ZIA now.
Two Years in Reverse was acquired by Oberlin College’s collection.
Up My Sleeve went to a lovely lady I met at Ragdale, a holiday gift to herself!
I saw her heading to the office on my last day there as I walked out to pack up the studio, and she told me she was the collector.
(Up My Sleeve is a favorite of mine so I am impressed by her choice.)
And just this week, ‘Flow From’ went to new collectors at the gallery. Wonderful!
Our family celebration is Tuesday, Wednesday we’ll shop for a lovely meal I’ll happily cook, and then we’ll gratefully collapse for a quiet warm holiday at home: lots and lots to celebrate!
I wish you all peace, warmth and joy, whatever and however you celebrate, and, as always, thanks for stopping by.
