But they really start popping when I am presented with new challenges. Fewer shows on the road, but more gallery show this year have stirred things up a bit. As has the opportunity for collaboration with other artists, and getting to work in new media.
I don't know how far these new ideas will go, if they will push a new body of work into the forefront, or just be pulled into the arena that I work in now. But I am enjoying this time of experimenting.
Puppet studies, I'll make more, there will be puppets sometime, somewhere in my work. I think.
In progress. I love this piece, and then I thoroughly dislike it. Then I see it in a new way, and like it again. That happens sometimes. The tricky part is to know when to quit when it stalls.
And, I thought I would make a few fun Valentines this year, like this one.
"I love you bonehead"
That's it for now, I'll be heading to Miami next weekend for the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. Come on down!
