Station Report

sunset out my windowSo many new things this month. The image to the right is my view while I write.

You know all that stuff I wrote in October about not being that good at designing web pages? Well, heh, I’ve got a couple web clients and one of them needs a redesign of their look and feel. I’ll be working from existing artwork and I’m feeling pretty good about that, so I think I’m well placed to give it another go. I’ve found myself some good design resources, a cool mentor and a few neat Meet-Up groups.

Artis Adventurous

Whew, what a whirlwind these last seven-ish weeks have been. I’m right back in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and gearing up for some creative expansion.  I’ve just started a two week series of informational interviews with friends and strangers; thriving professionals in their field involving art, teaching, writing, and entrepreneurial practices.

I think that means the quantity of time I’m spending in Minnesota will be racked up in the ‘unknown’ category. The quality will rock. Friends and family abound. I’m being hosted this month by a dear couple, at the always awesome D&D B&B, and I’m sure good times will be spent working in their beautiful yard, hanging out around the fire in quiet conversation, and putting some puzzles together. Other than that, it will be nose to the grindstone.

Hope your autumn will be colorful and your harvest is rich in love and friendship.

Leaves and Fruit

More pruning and shaping of my creative career tree.

As much fun as I have making things. And, as much as I love every aspect of selling at art fairs from set up to tear down, my passion doesn’t boil enough for the carting and storing of large amounts of product. I like my life of few things, though I’d like to find a way to do some art shows all the same. I guess this one will sit on the back burner for now.
