Sacred Play Workshop - 3 wonderful days spent with these beautiful ladies & the amazing Katherine of Valley Ridge Art Studio.
from the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, to the edge of Lake Erie, to the rolling fields of Wisconsin, to the long winding roads between here and there, to the wobbly chair in front of my computer screen... I wave hello!
and just like that, school is out for another year. without any effort, we are keeping ourselves busy... picking homegrown spinach, beets, herbs, making mint milkshakes, & friendship bracelets, reading, drawing, running barefoot in the green, green grass, soaking up the carefree afternoons, and late nights.... hoping they last for a long time.
Summer. Has. Arrived!!!
i absolutely love love love love love love summer!
some good summer music...
this morning, as I was picking a day lily to bring indoors I heard the melodic chatter coming from the wrens that are teaching their little babies to fly... what a precious sight, seeing the little fledglings with their disheveled feathers trying over and over again to get up off the ground. One almost landed right on me, oblivious to the fact that their mama would so not approve of that. I love when something such as this grabs my attention, reminding me that there are so many worlds within our world, so many beautiful worlds... and then I am reminded of a favorite quote...
The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself. - Henry Miller
Last week was the opening of my show at Glass Growers Gallery in Erie, PA. Seeing my work together like this is pretty darn gratifying. It was there that I had my very first gallery show years ago, how nice it was to be back.
I am so touched to read this very nice write up about my work for the gallery show. Wow.
I have also updated my etsy shop with some prints. :)
this summer i have started a new drawing journal...
one page done, many to go.
It's been a busy year for my girl. Playing Dorothy of the Wizard of Oz in her school play, making Challenge Soccer for next season, and graduating from grade school... my heart hurts in the best way! I swear she was just this little baby...
My workshop in Italy is coming up soon, there are still a few spaces left, if you wish to be there! It will be an amazing time of year to be in Orvieto, with Bill & Kristi...the best hosts! I can hardly wait to be back! The group that is forming for the upcoming trip is a good one! ;)
