|From our trip to Humbolt Redwood National Forest|
- Go see Arborist & buy some wine at West Seattle Cellars
- Commission for holiday gift-things are open thru November 30
- Do you want to come make paper with me?
- Arborist Notes books are available, but not in the shop yet cuz of reasons
As far as health & things go, I feel like I'm having a bit of an up-turn in energy & productivity. Altho, if I try to do too many things at once I will fall into a flare, so maybe I should be a little more skeptical about this sudden explosion of Being Able To Do Things.
Point is, life is feeling less worse at the moment, & I'm trying to get all I can out of that without actively hurting myself. It's a very delicate balancing act & it involves working on aspects of myself that I'm not as familiar with... like... delayed gratification.
Oh well, laying low means I can get some administrative tasks done... right? Or Netflix. Probably Netflix.
Arborist at West Seattle Cellars until December 10
The opening reception for this Arborist show was during a wine tasting event at the venue. I talked to several people who expressed interest in the intricacies of my work as well as the compelling story behind it. It was a wonderful experience to step outside my usual scene & meet people I would not otherwise have the opportunity to interact with.
I'm considering hosting a closing reception, but I might just wait until the next show goes up. If you find yourself over in West Seattle tho, do check out this show & maybe buy a bottle of wine... or cider. They have some really unique ciders there...
Commission some art for your holiday gift giving
Presently, I have 6 commission pieces. Most of those will be finished by the end of November & I'll need another half-dozen or so pieces to work on in the first couple weeks of December in order to stay busy & not go mad. So, if you're thinking of giving some art, email me or send me a message on the Book of Faces.
Want to come make paper with me?
I always enjoy having visitors come to the studio to keep me company. It's especially important to have people hanging around when I make paper because it's a long, repetitive process & having someone to talk to is a boon to my energy. Having some extra eyes to watch the iron also makes a difference so I don't have to sit for 4 hours.
