While staying in a wonderful cozy cabin I had the chance to start an art book. I bought an old book from a thrift store in town and glued pages, ripped out pages and started painting. It was so wonderful to do art just for me....well everything I make is in part for me but this was made with no intention of ever selling it to anyone else and I really really like that.
This is what we woke up to on Saturday...yeah it's snow. But back to art....I am ready. Ready to eventually close the shop and really focus on my art. While I have loved my 10 years owning a retail shop I just want to make stuff. I do own the building so it will likely be awhile before I close close but hours may change dramatically in the coming months. I will focus more on classes and selling my things in other stores...which by the way if you are in Madison check out Anthology on State Street...they carry my goodies now....super duper excited. I also want to work on more publications and writing articles. All of this takes quiet time...uninterrupted quiet time that having a shop just doesn't allow for. I have always believed that we should be open to possibility and change and this is really feeling right for me right now. So where it will take me is a mystery but I am looking forward to the future!
