Needless to say, it's been a while - OVER A YEAR - since my last post. It was a year of huge personal change, but through these struggles and heartaches, I have hopefully evolved, as a person, as a daughter & sister, and as an artist as well.
I'm still teaching, though my position was reduced to part-time, so I picked up another gig as an adjunct professor at Northern Kentucky University. Somehow, I'm still managing to make art.
I'm getting ready to have my first show in over a year, so I've been working feverishly on some new pieces. These drawings for me are a refreshing departure from the heavy graphic lines you get relief printing. I'm able to get a more delicate and feminine effect.
I'll post the details of my upcoming shows here soon, as well as some documentation from my most recent mural project, completed over the summer.
What a gorgeous weekend for an art fair! This marked my third year exhibiting at Summerfair Cincinnati, one of the longest-running outdoor art fairs in the country, and one that I have been attending since childhood. Friday was cold, rainy, and generally miserable, but my oh my how Saturday and Sunday dried up any thoughts of that first bad day: huge crowds, good sales, roasted corn, iced tea and glorious sunshine! Such a weekend made me wish that doing the art fair circuit was my full-time gig (though really, it's so much work that it's like having TWO full-time gigs!). Maybe one day, after I have a good long nap. Between the shows and finishing up my thesis, some R&R is looooong overdue!
