1998 Studio Time Sheets Going Paper Free One of my goals for 2016 was to create an (almost) paperless office. I’m tired of stacks of paper that need to be sorted and resorted and file drawers full of stuff I never read. Thanks to technology I made big progress on that goal. I switched to […]

How I Use My Time For the last 8 years I have posted a list of 100 accomplishments for the preceding year.   I’ll be posting my list for 2016 in the next day or 2.. The main purpose of the list is to celebrate all that I have accomplished. Why?  Because I’m like most of […]

My New Studio Kapiti Coast I’m back from my 3 weeks teaching in Australia and my container arrived in New Zealand 7 days ago. The studio is now full of boxes in search of a motivated person to sort it all out and set things up. I have much unpacking still to do.  Yet the […]

The Cards I ran out of business cards during the New Zealand Art Show a few weekends ago. Because my old business cards said I lived in Denver, I did the clever trick of scratching out that information and hand writing new information on those last few cards.  Always a classy professional move.

The Gap Two months ago I was sharing the artwork from my most recent exhibit, Restructuring, then poof – barely 1/3 of the way into the project I disappeared. For 2 months. I really do want to finish those posts – and I will – because my Structures series is a foundational part of who […]

A Day Late and a Dollar Short Could I be the last blogger to post a “let’s look back on 2015” type post?  Quite possibly! I considered skipping it as it feels a bit ridiculous to be post this more nearly 3 months after the year is over. And that’s okay – ridiculous is fine.  […]

Structures #171 – The backside Oops In the be careful of what you wish for category… I’ve been annoyed recently about the weird characters in my blog posts (by recent I mean I’ve been annoyed for about a year or at least long enough I’ve lost track of how long I’ve been annoyed.) It’s an […]
