The Earth Reliant Artist

I submitted this piece to the local art show
and Ijust recieved a phone call
suggesting it would be worth my while
attending the opening ceremony.
I will keep you posted.

We have finally secured a flat in town
which makes Dan's work commute much more reasonable.
And no more getting up before 5am!!!
But it does make life a bit tricky
being in town during the week
and home on weekends.
Also makes studio work a littel difficult.
So the usual swings and roundabouts.

Did a market yesterday
wasn't wildly successful
but that may hve been due to the gale force winds
No pics too busy holding on
or we would have ended up in the next town!!!

Sounds positive - good luck! It is a very nice piece and deserving of good news.

Beautiful artwork. I love it. HOpe you can manage to live at 2 places. Sometimes we need to choose the best option in life and work around it. The best option is looking into how you can benefit from it and it will open up possibilities that you didn't see before. Enjoy the opening night and your new appartment.

I love this piece, Trace. The title just sings to me too. Fingers crossed for you about the opening ceremony. And I hope things are a little easier now, though I know such a loss will always leave a space that can never be filled. But we wouldn't wish it any other Mr Cohen says, it's the cracks that let the light in.
