sky painting

i stopped working tonight to see this out my window. wendy and i went outdoors, she to romp, me to photograph. 
the last shifu covered book, made to fluff open and be fan like and lovely. papers are yellow cotton bedsheets, daylily, hosta, and mixed fiber sheets. i really like this book. it even has a smear of my blood on the cover, evidence that i suffer for my art. (ha!)
a glorious sky. 
and weeds. 
i am ready for the show--tomorrow i have three things to do: work, deliver the show, vote. i will cover upwards of 90 miles to do all this. my car is packed with rocks and paper and photos and books and shifu.

Isn't it nice that Mother Nature gives us such beautiful skies in the wintertime? I'm looking forward to meeting your rock books.

I went to your opening last Friday only to learn that I was a week early! Good intentions and all that.
Best for this Friday and the weekend and the entire 'showtime'.
Always,
Claudia

Wishing you a lovely installation and voting day!

isn't it a wonderful life when we have the privilege of voting, a space to show our art and the beauty of nature?

Velma said...

absolutely. i look forward to seeing all "youse guys" (ow, that hurt!) who can come, and for those of you who live too far, i owe some of this work to your community. thank you.

I love the beautiful little shifu covered book. It is haunting me, keep coming back for another look. Would love to touch it but don't NEED to--it has touched me. Hope the show is all you wished for.
