I'm headed to the the mountains! This is one of the views from our window. It' s almost enough to keep you inside all day just staring out......and keeping warm, of course. The skiing is magnificent. The town is still an old western landmark.

If this isn't inspiration, I don't know what is!

The black and white image was taken by my daughter, Emily, immediately before the war in Iraq...literally days before. This was spray painted on the old jailhouse in downtown Telluride.

i'll be gone for two weeks. Ciao!

A few years ago I decided to "go" 3D. I took some ceramics classes. I started building tall things...which I thought I should be doing. Gradually they started to become more of a relief/painting.

It occured to me that they are "shrine-ish"(thanks for the word, Michael).

I think it will take quite awhile to get every link, including artists, friends, travels, etc., that I love included in my list to "share". In doing some searching today, I thought of a glass artist I saw demonstrating his glass blowing technique at Wheaton Village glass center a few years ago. His name is Richard Jolley. Beautiful!

New York state of mind...

I had a wonderful time with my fellow "workshop junkies" this weekend in New York. We stayed at Joys' beautiful apartment and literally trashed the place with art supplies and yes, trash from the street. We decided to create ATCs. Small, easy to pack and we could all go home with shared creations. Joy and Kathryn also gave Jerri and I a little journal lesson. I'm not much of a journal writer (yet here I am typing away) but I am always game for new techniques.

Judy, Jane and the rest....we missed you.
