no down time
It continues to be a challenge to keep one step ahead of what is needed and requested by my galleries, but somehow, so far, it's still working. Or should I say. I'm
still working (constantly) ...by putting in my studio time, and doing whatever is next, I've been able to finish quite a bit of new work. Ideas, energy, focus--these things have not deserted me, and for that I'm very grateful. I'll be shipping some of the new work to Santa Fe and hauling some there, and also to Scottsdale, when I go West next week.
I guess I did have a bit of a break in mind for after the road trip...but that is not to be. Requests from my St. Louis gallery as well as an invitation to participate in a group show in January in Tucson mean I can't let up yet. Which is not a complaint, really! It's been very crazy/busy lately, but it's all good.
Of course, the trip to the Southwest will be a break of sorts (though not especially relaxing, I think) and this weekend, I'll be at a photography retreat in Minnesota. The workshop, Seeing Into Life: Photography as Sacred Vision
will be led by my friend Wade Britzius--a photographer and teacher of nonviolent communication, and all-around wonderful person. I guess I'm hoping it will add a little extra energy and inspiration to get me through the next few months.
