Big contrast going from the Keys to Michigan. It has been a weird winter, 40's- high 50's and am I remembering 60's (?......pacific northwest weather). In any case, then it plunged into the subzero's.
Note the wild fluctuations in the weather. Very weird, and how very monumental and impressive, this earth's reaction is, to what is hurting it.
Winter has really put me into a reflective state. It is so cocoon-like. There is a real drawing in which I must say I have enjoyed, but oh the weather. It has been extreme.
I am here for a very good reason though and would rather be absolutely nowhere else...(for now, most likely a fairly long now).
In any case, Markel and I have continued to do our work for our galleries (listed below) and we are slowly storing up work for art fairs and a gallery showing at some point, we haven't even started looking for galleries yet. We're still reacquainting ourselves with stretching our wings. It's a balance that we're always striving to accomplish.
We actually notice feeling guilty when we take time out of the design work to do our originals. Frustrating when you can't take the time to really be creative, but the sculpture and paintings are a future sale, while the design work remains popular and instant money ( and here's where I have to say thank goodness, so fortunate that we have work that sells so well). In any case, I think we've been doing a lot better with our balancing act, slow and steady go the turtles.
I've added a lot so don't forget to scroll down.
We will be showing at the Ann Arbor Art Fairs in July. More information coming,
