at the burien community center, right next to a lovely little green space that includes a valley, a playground and gorgeous cedar trees on saturday evening i and many other artists will have art on display and for sale. half the proceeds go to us and the other half to the burien arts league or something like that. here are what i did for this years show… i was half into it and half ready to give in. i thought it would be so easy to get 10 panels that measure 8″x8″ and do whatever i want. i struggled with the idea of only getting $20 per piece, so i feel like i held back. in the end though i figure they are sketches for future pieces. come thru if you can and see all the work… should be interesting :”)
being distracted by what is and is surrounding this new city of mine is an easy thing to do when the other option is but to continue the endless search and the filling out of applications. dare i say it – the job hunt continues. today though, while the revelers are in it to win it down and up on broadway i shall be in the midst of tree and peace. though to get there comes a marvelous wander…lets see where this goes this stroll of mine.
seems the Kubota Gardens is going to be in my future. I kept seeing scenes from memoirs of a geisha, though in my vision they were as cheesy as cheesy can get :”) though all the same, love and hope to one day have my own garden as winding and beautiful!today we are heading to the fremont fair..of which i will soon be hocking my own wares :”)
I know it has been quite a while since I’ve posted anything… but I get caught up in things and the updates tend to take a back seat to actuallities. Is that a word… my compu says NO. Anywho.. The last post was a picture of me working my ass off making cardboard tiles for a large corn crib installation up in Reedsburg, Wisconsin with the great Laura Annis. Here’s more on that:
Click that link above to see the piece head on :”) and complete!
And here is a better pic of the beautiful beautiful wonderful Wormfarm barn where I got work and sooo look forward to going back to. Thank you Donna and Jay! And you to Laura 🙂 and Katie and Katie and Terrence… all wonderful people!
The next big thing after that was my trip with the LOVE of my life to Washington State. Which is still calling to me! I can totally see myself moving there. There’s nothing like ancient woods, snow capped mountains, tidal pools and bald eagles! Chicago, I love you cause your my home and my Mom is here but Holy MOLY!! Here’s a picture of said mountain at just the right time and oh so majestic!
That state is definitely in my future :”) So many images we have you’d have to come over and we can do one of them sit downs and looks and talks :”) And maybe I can serve you drinks now that I am OFFICIALLY LICENSED TO BARTEND! That way it won’t seem so long going through 1,400 pictures of our trip :”)
Stay tuned for where I get my first job serving drinks and the stories that I know are sure to come!
