Just a picture from around the old homestead for now.....I got this cool dish soap dispenser at the Tacoma Art Museum a few years ago. It sweetly swivels forward to dole out its contents--love the design. The nail brush was a gift for my 40th birthday from my friend Jane Wattenberg, who writes and illustrates the funkiest children's books anywhere which you can see by clicking here. It used to live in the shower, but I have moved it to the kitchen sink since I started working in the garden every day. It dawned on me last night that it was kind of funny that the scale of the cat and bird are so grossly reversed.
In other news, there's some interesting color combinations evolving in my studio these days. Will fill you in on that this weekend when I'm wrapping this stage up. But last night I had a big breakthrough with my show proposal that I've been writing for the past year, off and on. When a venue accepts this project, I'll be sure to share it with you. I really love the stage of a project when I'm visualizing it, getting the ideas all in order, and making a plan. In this case, I am going to propose it to the Portland Art Center, and they want a budget. This is a great thing because I am going to need that for the grants I'll also apply for to see it happen.
Tomorrow TJ and I will visit the Portland Art Museum so stay tuned for my upcoming long drawn out discussion on minimalist art.
