A pause, with my grandma Joan

 

Hi everyone,

I keep on doubling back to this insanely beautiful glass wall at the Miami Airport. It’s called Harmonic Convergence by Christopher Janney. It was quite literally, a sanity check-point while navigating a long pilgrimage from The Florida Keys to Chicago with my 86 year old grandmother, Joan. After having to psychically body check a woman who almost knocked my grandmother over, we took a moment to gather our bearings and reposition our luggage. With our luck, it happened in front of Janney’s windows.

‘Dear rude lady - thank you for almost knocking my grandmother over because if you hadn’t, we would have never paused to admire this installation.’

Meanwhile in Chicago, we had a nice time riding through O’hare Airport. This is Sky’s The Limit, a 1987 permanent installation by Michael Hayden. Having grown up in Chicago, I’ve spent hours of my life walking through this installation. It is still one of my favorite experiential pieces. It also started my life long romance with airport art.

Last night's long pose with Tulee

Made a bunch of awkward drawings last night - and my question is - What makes something MORE than just a drawing? Also, how do you ruin a drawing? I’ve started a list. Tulee held the pose below for 5 sessions, each 20 minutes long.

 
 

Should also probably mention that the air quality is so bad here in San Francisco that government buildings and schools were shut down today. For everyone not in California, this is a horrible, horrible fire. Here are a couple signs in my neighborhood…

New Stained Glass

Here's a new window in the works - 

Each window i'm making is supposed to pair with one of my latch hook rugs. I would love to eventually sell them as sets and work on commission for unique homes and spaces. More photos to come! 

Undertoe Rugs

I've spent the past few months working on a few very special pieces. Here is a picture of one in progress in my living room. After putting in more than 125 hours i cannot believe it isn't even half way done! More pictures to come :)
