Hey gang, I'm pretty much "gone fishin' " for the next couple (three?) weeks. I'm tired, distracted, hot. Put a fork in me: I'm done.
I have a final kiddo class on Thursday, making paper mosaics. To that end, I was at the Library cutting down piles of old magazines and colored paper into strips. I cut a skateboarding magazine spine + a couple of inches and got these little spontaneous book bits. Accidental art.
I'll continue to share things on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook but will not press myself to do much else online. I'll be working on my Etsy shop some. My pal Jill Berry put together a lovely little logo! She's so smart with Photoshop.
Speaking of Jill, She's got a gorgeous new book out, Making Art From Maps. It's stunning, really. (And not just because I'm in it.) I wish there were more pics on Amazon but I'll review it in a few weeks. Super inspiring art inside.
So, there you have it. I'll be here, at the beach, making art (always). Just not sharing as much as usual. When I come home from vacation, I go (almost immediately) for my 3rd surgery of the year. I'll get back up on my feet. We do that, don't we? I heard Cory Booker's speech last night from the DNC. If you don't know him, he's currently a senator from NJ. We know and love him here in Philadelphia as the progressive, insightful and inspirational mayor of Newark, NJ. I'll leave you with his words from when he was growing up "gratitude is our gravity."
I'm grateful every day for all of you. You folks keep me real, keep me on my toes and inspire me. I love you all. Thanks.
