Howdy Strangers...

Here I am.

I am up early today (which is pretty much the norm these days).

What have I been up to?

Living life I guess.

This summer has been pretty busy... work, working out, teaching, making art, and a trip to Alaska.

Yes, I went to Alaska at the end of July to see a friend I knew from School... it was quite the adventure. If you haven't been to Alaska I think you should put it on your list. It's pretty breathtaking... my only complain is that it didn't ever really get dark -  if you are tired enough you can sleep through anything.

I will post a few photos at the end of this post.

In other news... my friend Jenny and another artist friend of hers and I  have a show coming up in February in Washington D.C.  it's called #thisiswhyimsingle and it will contain my Failed T-shirt Designs for Today's Modern Woman... I'm pretty excited to actually get my work out there again - sure it's work that was started a few years ago but it's still relevant today. Sometimes I guess you just have to go out of your local area to get anything seen...

here's a link to the press release page from Flashpoint Gallery

I have also gotten in to the Vermont Studio Center again - this time for next May. I'm thinking about seeing if I can change it to a later date... With all my travel next year (DC twice,-Hawaii in March) I'm thinking I can't afford to take that much time off of work.

My track record is pretty good when it comes to VSC.

I think I have an 80% acceptance rate which is pretty good... I've never gotten a fellowship which would make me going a no-brainer, but I do think it's worth going if you have the time and financial ability to do so.

I applied under the Painting category this time which is good... considering I"m a sculptor/object maker at heart.

I will figure it out sooner rather than later what to do...

okay, as promised some photos from Alaska....

It was fun... lots of scenery and I went fishing... came back with a lot of Halibut and a lone silver salmon...

I think that's all I have to share now.

Keep doing what makes you happy... I am.
