and of course,
photographed it.

thank you KC----------

my piece for my man.

wolfgang tillmans is an artist i really like.
i like his style,
he inspires me,
causes me to think.

his work is described as open-ended and unresolved,
he loves variety and possibility.

i found these photos on his website

so my ceramics teacher Tricia McGuigan gave us an assignment to make an urn for an artist, and i chose him.
i dont know if its morbid to tell you that,
since he's still alive.

i thought that he'd want options though....
so i gave him lots.

there you go wolfgang,
love to you,

the best guestbook entries i've seen

tweet tweet! exciting things ahead.

guess what.
i have a new blog coming out.
how long has this been in the works?
two years.
two, years.

i'm hoping it will be done in a week... we're working hard on it!

now for a story.
i found this print by the Mincing Mockingbird at the Renegade Craft Fair this weekend, and literally was brought to tears because of what it stirs in me. cardinals are becoming a big deal in my life, i now collect cardinal art, and this piece represents some of what will be coming in the new blog.

go check out the Mincing Mockingbird's etsy store!........ his art will change you. Bird art is becoming cliche, but this is far from that. And his titles are changing me.

excited for the next week. :)
get ready to rock!
