Its another morning,

the beginning of my ten day retreat, is what I will call it. I am going to choose two of the days for absolute silent meditation and art work. I will let you all know when that is! because it will include no internet. I hope to get very far on the arts in the airport pieces. All the historic textile research papers will be graded too.

Views at the Hill

Here is a picture of the red barn at the bottom of the hill by my house,  as seen from the road I walk on to my studio. My studio is past this, turn a corner onto the road below, and walk back to just below my house at the bottom of the hill.  Because of this, every time I walk from the house to the studio there are new things to see and new things that enter the work.  I have found, over the years, that I am deeply rooted in time and place. I can work in any place; but whatever that place is, it becomes embedded in the visual syntax.

Photos of the ice storm December 2008

There was an ice storm in Goshen in the winter of 2008.  It is hard to imagine it was this long ago.  There was so much ice and snow; we were visiting New England over Christmas. We were stranded with good friends, plenty of food, no elecricity or water for over a week. 

I took so many pictures.  The light in the ice was an infinite maze of line and form.   am fascinated by the close up view, the way soft forms are encased in the ice, wish I could learn to manipulate glass and recreate it. It was like being in a crystal palace.
