I received a blog award – Sunshine blog award. I never received a blog award before. Not one, but two people gave me this award nearly simultaneously – Leslie White of Lesliepaints and Ryan of Asmalltowndad. Two people thought that I am doing something worthwhile here, brighten their day in some small way. I am grateful and honored. Thank you, Leslie and Ryan!
Now following this award rules I am nominating 12 bloggers who helped me on my journey, taught me things and continue to brighten my life.
Ok, I can count to 12, I know I got thirteen. But there is no way to exclude anyone from this nomination list. 13 it is.
And finally, special and unnumbered, this award goes to my husband, also a blogger, who deserves all awards in the world. Being married to an artist isn’t easy!
Now, my dear friends, if you accept your nomination, please do the following:
SOFA Chicago came and went.
I did not have anything on display this year, but I spent 3 days there to see what other artists have been doing and get my imagination charged. And also to hang around my gallery and spent time with Sami whom I adore but only get to see once a year. Here’s Sami, the owner of Mostly Glass gallery, and I.
I also worked after the show closed , from 6pm till 11pm, and helped my gallery pack – a Herculean task to say the least – nearly everything the gallery shows is glass. Here’s how SOFA looks after the doors are closed, fancy public in designer duds is gone and spot lights are turned off. Not the images from glossy brochures – the real deal.
It is official! Today we received an email from Palgrave Macmillan, a UK publishing house, that my husband’s book is going into production. It is a highly academic treatise called Empathy in the Context of Philosophy. This is very exciting for us both. But what is really important is that the image of my latest tapestry is going to grace the front cover. And the publishers emailed to discuss the details. The tapestry is called Dessuart:
The image on the cover will be a crop of the whole thing, probably the upper half, and will likely be too small to do it justice. But still I am very excited – I will have the credits in the book. You can read more about symbolism of Dessuart on Mostly Glass gallery site.
