Today Paul and I drove down to Tampa to see my work that was in an invite only show by Katherine Gibson who is a private art dealer. Every once in awhile she converts her house into a gallery show for her clients, so they can see the art in a home setting. It was so much fun to see my work grouped in with other artists and displayed in such a lovely setting. It was a breath of fresh air and I am so glad I took the time to go.
In the morning I had worked myself into a quite a state: Toby had an eye infection and needed running to the vet, I have a huge stack of emails that piled up while I was away teaching, and some reproductions I had made of of my work did not turn out good (I'm blaming the mercury retrograde). So I was feeling flustered, overwhelmed and out of sorts. I am so glad that I took the time to go to the show because I feel so much better, more centered and ready to face the world again.
Here are some photos from the show!

An assortment of 3-d cigar box collages, a sitting lady and a Poppet® doll....
And on our way there we were driving behind this ... we thought it was hilarious the Mini on top of that giant Hummer.
Paul and I got Love Me If You Dare, in from Netflix, so I am going to snuggle down and watch it. I can get back to catching up and dealing with the real world tomorrow, for now I am going to relax and try not to feel stressed out or overwhelmed.
EDITED 10pm: Only two stars for Love Me if You Dare. It wasn't at all the Amelie style movie I thought it would be. It was odd and disturbing. Oh well!
i decided to try it, so a friend of mine and I went there and it was pretty decent. I don't know if you've tried it before, but if you ever drive over that way, maybe you should pop in!
a very snuggly day tomorrow. My husband is watching the movie "Goonies" right now. It's so halerious to here him laugh at it.
Talk to you soon.
so glad you posted photos of your pieces on exhibit - what a great idea for a show and how wonderful your work looks in this setting!
thanks for sharing! now lots of r&r! all the best from so. cal.!
