About Me

My photo
Albuquerque, NM, United States
I have been weaving Contemporay Fine Art Tapestries for over 20 years, raising a family in the lovely Southwest. I want to show process which usually gets a back seat to product and share the trials and tribulations as well as the joy and excitement of the creation of art out of a bunch of strings. How remarkable!

Time for a bit of a Rest and Catching Up

Yes, the big push to get new work done for my Solo show"CONNECTIONS and INTERSECTIONS" in Madrid NM ( at the Tapestry Gallery through August) is over and now since I'm not frantically working 11 hours at the loom I can catch up on badly needed cleaning and R&R.

Doing a solo show with a deadline is a great way to fulfill the New Years resolution of restocking my inventory with New Work. You can"t enter exhibits if you have no available work.
The reception was fun and lucrative , having sold the piece to the right of the doorway.The show will constantly change as pieces find their homes so I hope to do at least one more new "Fractured Square " piece before end of August.

Plenty of friends and clients and Convergence and CW goers. It was a record breaker for the heat ( 101) so thanks to all the brave people who literally weathered the heat.

My R&R will be short lived in order to come up with more new work and fill orders from the last 2 shows( both of which are still up for viewing thru end of July, 10th floor City / County building Commissioner Stebbins Offices, directly west from Convention Center and at the Creative Albuquerque Art Space , Corner 1st and Gold.

Rest and recreation for me means working in the garden, which needs so much weeding!, and lying pool side after a swim near the lily pond and fountain.

And look how my gardens grows with volunteer sunflowers and setting tomatoes and ripening chiles and oregano and lots of basil for pesto!
