new lil' night swimmers
(shown w/Night Swimmer No. 18)
I know I'm late to the party but I was looking for a way to change things up and a friend mentioned Instagram. More photos, less words....I think I'm going to like it. I'm going to post images and new work here and there for the next few weeks and see how it goes. This place feels like home but it might be fun to travel down a new road to see where it leads...if you are on instagram you can follow me here.

I drove to Grand Rapids, MI earlier this week to hang my work along with over 1500 other artists in a city wide celebration of art. Art in office buildings, cafes, bars and retail shops and windows. Sculptures and installations inside museums and outside in public plazas. Art everywhere for everyone for just a few days. If you are anywhere near the west side of the state I invite you to stop in and cast a vote in person. If you are not close enough to attend the event in person, you can cast a vote on line here: http://www.artprize.org....my # is 61470. I am so excited to be a part of this enormously vibrant, public, gorgeous effort to spread the idea that art starts conversations, nourishes the soul and is for everyone.

(Shortly before it became official)
I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that my 1st born child is now out in the world for reals. The photo above was taken a bit before the president welcomed the class of 2019 in the sweltering heat. Phoebe, Chuck and I had a great dinner the evening before, talked for hours and the next morning the move in went pretty smoothly (despite near 100 degree temps and a tricky laptop issue). I am so excited to see this smart, strong and passionate young woman start her own journey. My role in her life is shifting and that is a big change. I held it together while we were at school, but today, when we arrived home and I walked by her room, I lost it. A wave of emotions washed over me as I begin to process this separation. The boys go back to school Tuesday and there is lots of cleaning and organizing to do around here so I think I'm going to take a week or two to pull myself together, get back to work in the studio and think about what I want this blog to look like going forward. See you back here in just a bit...
