Happy New Year!

I haven’t been very good about blogging regularly but I hope to do better this year. My goal is to write at least once a week.  We’ll see how that goes!

I’ve been struggling with getting good images of the piece, Nascence.  It’s the largest piece I’ve ever done and I can’t get good perspective with it.  Usually, I put the open vessels onto my backdrop on the floor and shoot them from above, but that isn’t working.  All of my walls are textured and full of holes and marks—not to mention finding a large enough blank space—so I’m probably going to have to do something on one of the garage walls.  It’s not ideal but if I can get good images that’s all that matters.

Here is an in situ view in my studio:nascence-cropped-brightened-wm-72-pix

Not bad for a snapshot but not good enough for an exhibition entry.  This piece was originally destined for a basketry invitation this spring but that was cancelled so I’m going to enter it in at least one show this year.

That’s all for this week but I have some good blog topics planned for the next few weeks. 

Stay tuned!

And my best wishes to you and your loved ones for a happy, healthy New Year!
