Thank you lovely! I'm pretty good. I have a show in San Diego that I have to have done B/4 the end of the year. It opens early May but I'm working tax season again. Tax season actually fits in pretty well with my jewelry commitments. I'm out of commission between Feb 1 and April 15th, but aside from that - I have pretty good flexibility and time for making work. I'm 3/4 done with the San Diego stuff and I have some great pieces to make on my design tables that are unrelated to that show. Since all the problems of San Diego are done - I'm itchin to get to this work I've been developing off and on over the last few years. I'm not teaching very much - but still a little. I miss it a lot, but it has allowed my own work to be closer to the front burner. It's a real conundrum. The work becomes lonely, but that is what it takes to get it made. If not for droning forensics and true crime in the back ground I don't think I would survive. (by the way droning - good in this case). Did I see some kind of board position open for SNAG - treasurer or something? I can't remember what your position is. My membership lapsed, but I'll re-up pretty soon. Same w/my SMG membership. Gotta get that done. I'm looking forward to the conference in May. I was supposed to be the local "$" gal, but the organization of that changed so that there was no need. It's really good news because when I committed to that 3 years ago I wasn't working tax seasons. Ok - now I'm writing a book. Obviously it's been too long. Would love to see you.
I don't know what my 'schedule' will look like during the conference with all the nutty stuff I am involved in next year, BUT I definitely want a 'date' with you, even if it is just for coffee :-)) Let's talk a little closer to the actual event, ok ? I look forward to it already.
Will help trying to get the conference first-timers comfortable now, still remember my own first conference in Cleveland just a few years back....
About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More
