All at once, fall is upon me.
Last weekend, my sisters and a few adult nieces and I spent a long weekend at a lodge/cabin in Southern Ohio. It was grand.
And days before that weekend, Claire Wellesley-Smith's book, Slow Stitch, arrived at my door.
I adore this book and not just because she included one of my works.
She has written a book that I wish I did.
and it is Good.
A few weeks before that I drove up to Michigan to install Timelines at Work Gallery.
My good friend Jennifer Coyne Qudeen was there last weekend and wrote a nice blogpost with much better photographs including a few with her sweet girls walking through the artwork. See here.
Today, I installed 5 long drawings. Each drawing is 100 feet long and about 18" wide. This is for a one day event to activate the abandoned storefronts in Lorain, Ohio. The event is called Fire Fish Festival 2015. I'm please to be able to contribute my work to this event. It was strange to be on a street with all these old buildings built in the 1800's and now, it's a ghost town.
Let's hope the tide will turn for Lorain, Ohio.

And now at this late hour of the day
I prepare to drive to Johnson, Vermont in the morning to the Vermont Studio Center where will be for a few weeks to make new work.
I have been awarded a Windgate Craft Artist Fellowship to attend the Center.
