To cope with Dad’s decline and the arctic weather we’ve been having, I’ve been working on the studio to continue to get it up to speed, as well as working on calligraphy. That is a skill set that both is interesting and gives me a wider variety of mark making for other artwork. It has led into what may end up as a painting series. We will see.
Mike and I squeezed in a short trip to Texas to see my sister-in-law. Both to give her some fragile items too delicate to mail and to bring her up to date on Dad in person rather than through an email or by phone.
In regards to the studio, my hope is to start an artists’ fellowship soon. A safe place for area artists of faith to meet, share, pray, and build a tribe. Every time it seems to get close, something happens to derail it. But I continue to press on.
We’ll see what the following months bring. In the meantime, check out the book page and tell your friends!
