July 2022: Taking Stock
After starting the year with a frenetic pace, I find myself in a mid-year pause. Now, that long-anticipated Attleboro Arts Museum show is over with its cross-country trips and I’ve finished the Tree of Life mural at The Next Best Thing to Being There shop, I am taking stock of my life with family, friends and community — right at the midpoint of the year, with Summer Solstice just behind us and July on the horizon. Right now, it’s feeling pretty good just to live day to day without any enormous events or projects looming ahead.
As the pace has slowed in June, I was finally able to complete Hexagram 43 in the ongoing I Ching series and begin Virginia in the Postcards to America series. Hexagram 43 will be showing for the first time at Ghostwolf Gallery, stop by on First Friday, June 1 from 5-8pm! The amazing Kelli Judkins-Cooper will be the featured artist.

New Sign for The Next Best Thing to Being There
The summer I was eighteen, I spent the summer with a youth group in Grants, New Mexico, and one of the highlights of the summer, besides climbing Mount Taylor every weekend and falling in love with the area, was working with a local sign painter putting my calligraphy skills to use in freehand sign painting. It was fun to revisit those skills all these years later and create a sign that complements the completed mural. Please visit this extraordinary shop at 1315 Mountain NW in Albuquerque which specializes in free trade gifts around the world as well as items from local artists including myself.
