Whew! It has been close to a year since I blogged. I don't need to elaborate on how weird this year was. You get it. One would think that because I work by myself from home ANYWAY, my life would not have been affected greatly. I thought the same. At any rate... I had nothing going on to write about. Then all of a sudden, I was so flipping busy that I didn't have time to write. I just finished two mosaics that were a commission for Limespring Oncology. Each are 3 ft x 5 ft. As soon as I get a breather, I will do a video of the fabrication of these two. Well, that's the plan.
I tend to get kind of wrapped up in my work. In research for my forest mosaic, I ended up with three pet snails. In research for the meadow mosaic, I ended up ordering a few milkweed plants that will arrive in spring.I have already started preparations for the next two projects. Both will be group projects and each present challenges I have not faced before. One is in a school out of my state. I will have to pack and fly with enough tools for 16 kids and wear protective gear as requested by the school. In the other project, I will prepare all materials and instructions for people that I will not even meet. I will collect all the glass they assemble and fire it into tiles that I will use to make a big fingerprint mosaic. I have another residency lined up for summer and a small project that is also really exciting. How can things get any better?!!!! I'll tell you next blog post. BTW, I saw last blog post someone commented and I had not seen it. They said that they contacted me through my site and I did not see that either. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will look into the problem and fix as soon as possible.
