I recently returned from Quilt National at The Dairy Barn in Athens Ohio. www.dairybarn.org After submitting for several years, my piece Archeology Series Fragment #14 was juried in! Any of you who have gone to the big shows know how delightful this can be! My mind is crowded with new acquaintances, new ideas, the overdose of visual input, the joy of seeing my family who is from Columbus, Ohio, and the wonderful time sharing it with them and friends. Achieving this goal has been a dream of mine for years.
I just broke down my show of dog portraits at The Art Bazaar in New York city at 7th Ave and 20th St. It was the third time I have exhibited there. After exhibiting I always need to reassess and redirect. I have showed both my Archeology Series there and my dog portraits. Two completely different markets.
My youngest child graduates from high school next week and my head is swimming with emotions, and to- do lists, from buying her graduation dress to making college plans. I am thrilled for her but my heart is breaking.
