well, back to the studio. time to start getting some stock together for my spring show on May 3rd. why is it i can't seem to get motivated? motivation, its so illusive at times, especially for the artist that works alone. there is something special about just working in the same proximity to another artist. there's an aura, a creative vibe that exists when you work in another artist's presence. not to mention the exchange of ideas and critique. its always a challenge to create that vibe on your own. how do some of you do it? i'd really like to know if you have a secret to keeping the creativity and motivation going. in the meantime, i'll start getting ready for the show :) hope everyone has a great weekend! go out and create something, even if its only mac n' cheese!
above is a collaboration i did with amy weber, an incredibly talented artist in just about any medium. her part is the wonderful crab and egg watercolor. i'm the dot chick. you can check out her blog at the right. cheers!

Cut Day!

well this saturday was the big day...cut day! we ventured down to catalyst hair group to see cherie and it was a fabulous day! i couldn't have hoped for a better experience for bronwyn. she and i had washed our hair that morning and let it dry in anticipation of the cut. the hair has to be clean and dry before donating. when we got to the salon, the lady before bronwyn was so impressed that she gave bronwyn $20 and told her how proud of her she was. after she left cherie told us she is a survivor and was having reconstructive surgery the following week. don't start crying....then came the big moment. she said later she was a little nervous, but we sure couldn't tell! cherie made 2 pony tails and then snip, snip and it was done! she ended up donating 11" of her beautiful hair. then bronwyn got to go for a 'real' wash and head massage! as you can see from the pictures, her new haircut is adorable! we are so proud of bronwyn, we are busting :) to date she has raised $1450 which will almost pay for the manufacture of 2 wigs (her goal was 1). congratulations bronwyn, you are our hero!!
