Altar Series and going home...

It's been a long year.  Lots of crap - but ending with much happiness, many accomplishments, contentment in creating, the promise of new friends and further adventures with old friends.   I'll be heading off to Southern Illinois next week.  If you see me on the road, I'll be the one doing 50 - 55 mph on the two-lanes whenever possible.  I hate interstates.  I hate crazies flying by me at 75 and 80 - and I hate those giant trucks that box you in or see how close they be to your bumper.  I like to poke along through the small towns and see how others live, the landscape, the sky, the very atmosphere of taking a trip.  It's the journey as much as the destination.  See you all in 2014.

Altar Series:  Birds Watch., mixed media, 29 x 16 x 3.  $450     

This piece is currently showing at the Sautee Nacoochee Center Gallery.  

Yesterday I traded out work that had been at the Tallulah Falls Gallery for some time.  I'd forgotten that one of my altars was there and I am pleased to have it back - for at least a while.  I'm very attached to these works, and thus far they've all sold (which surprises me) so I've not been able to keep one.  I think I'll keep to "So Fragile A Fire".

And here you are again over here. It's good to see you back. Are you moving to southern Illinois or is this a visit?

Hey Roy... Just a visit. Haven't been home in 5 years! My mother turned 89 this past summer and I vowed to visit before her next birthday. She still lives in her own house, has her hearing, all of her marbles - and probably more of her own teeth than me! ha .

These are wonderful Patrice. Shame I do not live near where I could buy one.

I did the visiting family thing yesterday, Mum is 69 and has barely made it to Christmas due to health issues. Such is the way of things.

I wish you a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic New Year.

I really like the shrines. I have been meaning to make some myself. Now is the time to get busy.
