You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club -Jack London
Transition Noun: 1. Movement, passage, change from one position, state, stage, concept to another; change
I've decided the best way to write my newsletter is to start with a key word or theme that seems most prominent in my life right now. And Aprils word is definitely TRANSITION.
We have now been living in Paonia for 3 weeks. But with new tasks and speed bumps everyday it feels like we just moved in; and in the best way because everyday is so fresh and new.
First things first, the big reveal of "Opening Doors" installation at The Children's Museum of Denver is next Wednesday morning at 8:45am. Please come to support myself and the other artists, the community and the organization. My door is one of 10 that you will be able to interact with.
Ive started a new series of horse tack sculpture in acrylic. I am really excited about this as the pieces deceivingly resemble leather. It is mixed media of acrylic and metal. I will be posting these on my website and hopefully exhibiting them very soon.
Update from Paonia; We have completed the pruning of one huge block of Chardonnay. (Note the underline because we still have 10 acres to go). We also got our water running yesterday so all the vines are in early nourishing stages. What seems like baby steps is actually a huge operation and the four of us are pretty excited and determined to change this place in to a haven of healthy strong vines! Our goals for the month are finishing the pruning (to the best we can), and getting our water lines to function efficiently. Finding routine is just one of the many transitions we are all going through. We don't have internet in the house yet (due to janky electrical issues from the 60's) but we have discovered Back Country Bistro which has internet and AMAZING breakfast burritos. Sitting here right now with the rest of the town ;)
A toast to TRANSITION, may we accept, cherish, be gracious and patient as we all move forward. Love to you all!
