The holiday season is fast approaching. This means StudioG is in creative chaos as I prepare for my annual studio sale. You are invited. Please come and join us in a small celebration. There will be live jazz with the fabulous Max Zipursky Trio, (not to be missed), great food and drink and a selection of small artworks created and curated especially for the day. I love this opportunity to play in a very different scale, florals conceived as petite meditations, mixing up the color palette and continuing to introduce small studies of the landscape inspired by my riverside location. It is an afternoon to say thank you to all of you out there in my community who have been of support and inspiration and just generally to have a little fun.
For those of you who cannot attend, I wish you a great holiday with your friends and family. May it be peaceful and reflect brightly, the values of oneness and harmony.
Coming up, look for an interview i did for Christine Dovey and her blog in the section Art Fair Fridays
and finally, if the season has lost a little of its lustre recently, a few words of quiet inspiration
The Peace of Wild Things
BY WENDELL BERRY
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
