Two weeks ago, a brief snowstorm in Denver left some morning slush on the side of our streets and on some grassy areas near my home. As I walked my dog Sylvie that day, I got an idea about producing a piece inspired by this slush. I made a brief (two minute) video as I worked on “Roadside Slush” to let you in on a bit of my creative process! You can also catch a glimpse of my Denver studio, Cheyenne Studio North, in the video, although it is not any kind of formal tour!
Speaking of studio tours…I have decided to hold some open studio days this summer both at my studio in Greenwood Village, CO, and in Santa Fe, NM. I will try to make a post on my Facebook page as well as on this blog so that any interested locals can plan to stop by, though some open studio times will probably be spontaneous! If you are interested in stopping by during an open studio, feel free to send me your contact information and I would be happy to keep you posted with details. I would love to give you a little tour of my studio, show you what I’m working on, answer any questions, and as always, I would love to hear any feedback you might have!
Until then, if you have any thoughts, comments, or questions about me or my work, please don’t hesitate to send those my way or leave them in the comments below this post!
One of my four new pieces, “One More for the Road,” is a departure from almost anything I have ever done. This piece began like many of my other wooden assemblage works, but as I pieced together the chunks of wood and other findings, a story unfolded. I believe the title of the piece makes the subject of the story pretty clear, but I’d love to hear your take on this work. Do you see a story within this piece?
