Finally! I've never been sick that long! I'm so happy its over, no more sleeping all day for me. I've been sketching a lot, venturing out to look at gardens around town (inspiration for garden art) just absorbing beautiful surroundings. I used to sculpt garden art ages ago, making things I thought would be pretty, but not really considering it from a gardeners point of view (I lived in an apartment building without so much as a houseplant) . I think this changes how I see garden art now, this new perspective of having cared for my own little sanctuary. I'm excited about this new endeavor, but a touch nervous, I haven't made this type of sculpture for awhile, hopefully it'll be well recieved. I will post pics.
Last night we signed up for a show called Faerie Con in Philadelphia this October (www.faeriecon.com). I'm keeping my fingers crossed, its late to be signing up, so spaces are probably sold out. I really want to go! I would love to try new venues, different cities, maybe meet new people. One of my favorite artists will be there, the wonderful Brian Froud (http://www.worldoffroud.com/) ! I've loved his work since I was a kid. I'll bring him one of my fairies. Have a good night!
