Been so busy since touchdown/return from Miami... show went well. Sold some work, saw some old friends/ex students. I am very pleased with the how the exhibition looks, but it is different from most solo shows I have had, much more intimate and tight.

Most of my life, I have had solo shows composed of huge paintings.... here all the pieces were small, compact. And as hard as I worked on this show, all I can think about is the work to come.  Working small gives such freedom... all my large paintings take months of planning, preparation, execution... so much investment of time and effort, they have to earn the right to exist. I feel unfettered and inspired, excited. And it is Spring.

There was this incredible few moments when my daughter first came into the gallery on opening night. She has seen me working on all this stuff for the past few years, and she ran into the large square gallery and was euphoric. I was in the center of the room, near where my nest was installed on a pedestal, and she would run out to the walls under each piece, and look up at it, then turn around and come running back to me in the center, a huge smile on her face, and would jump into my arms, and say, "MY Mommy!" I was enjoying her glee and her hugs, but it really didn't register with me at the time what she was saying, because I did not think her capable of putting all of this together... it was the first time she had ever said anything like that. Worth all the pain of the past few months.

"Special Angel II", 2012, graphite on paper, graphite on tissue paper, etched mirror, 20 x 16" oval. Newest work in the "Guardian Angels That Don't Come Through" series. I do love the plain drawing I did for this also, and am looking forward to coming home and pushing this imagery a bit more....
Had 14 people at our house for Easter. Got a phone call at the last minute and prepared to receive 4 more people.... baked 3 more bunny cakes, made 3 more baskets.... they did not come. Subbed for the head of my department all day yesterday (said I would do it months ago before the opening date was set). Did this drawing over the last few days... it will change over the next few hours. Off to D.C. Moore for a 2" round mirror now. Must assemble this piece, take it to Fed Ex, do laundry, do a few last minute things for the show like find screws for the wall brackets, sand and paint the base for my nest, prep for class tomorrow, pack for myself & daughter, get up at 6 am tomorrow to teach a class all day, then head to the airport for first plane ride with toddler. Oh, and try to make myself look like a human after a month of abuse.
