So….back from New York. Took me a few days to recover and feel like myself again. There was not a lot of sleep to be had, and I had many firsts: Knoedler Gallery opening, Korean food, Karaoke (!), The Strand bookstore, nighttime gallery hopping in Chelsea. I stayed with wonderful friends, and met some great people. Sensory overload!
I adore the City, but I’m also really glad to be home again. We are very close to San Francisco here, but I swear you would never know it.
Winter here is austere and beautiful. I’ve been walking in the late afternoon with Milo (my dog) since I got back, and it just -anchors- me. I’ve also spent some time in the studio…
Here is a nest in progress. I’ve got a xerox drying on there. I’ll rub the back off to transfer the image, and it will be close to done. A little tweaking, a little embroidery…I really like this one. I’ll have to tell you the story of that nest in a future post.
And, yes, that IS Ian in the background. Ah, the joys of the trampoline!
