Sometimes growth can be super slow moving, not as fast as one would like. That’s the way I’ve been feeling lately. And yet, when I look at my life lately, I’ve achieved many great things. I owe great thanks to Courtenay Davis who invited me to speak about my art to an art salon in Alameda. And thanks to the art salon, Lorraine M. Bruce asked me to have my first solo show at the Kensington Library in July 2010.
I didn’t realize how much I missed making books and this talk put me on the road to begin the process of making lots of little books. They are still in process but I am excited about them. They’re built upon things I’ve done in the past but I’m making improvements along the way.
The recent mixed-media/acrylic piece above tested my patience as it was coming together. So often, the importance of stopping, letting go, releasing and coming back is taught to me through my own work.
