Fir tree cut at 8500 feet in the San Juan Mountains (on the property we once owned)

Christmas Eve and all is frosty here in Colorado. After 3 days of wet snow and rain, today began with blue skies, turning out to be a good day for a brisk walk and snow on the ground for a beautiful White Christmas. Cheers to all and may the world become more at peace in the new year.

Winter has arrived in Colorado and the branches of the Curly Willow beautifully hold the snow.

Spire (Andy Goldsworthy, sculptor)

Another version of hugging trees!

This fall a trip to California included seeing a new work by Goldsworthy at the Presido in San Francisco. The piece is made of assembled cut cedar trees that had died on the site. It echoes a building in downtown San Francisco. I also took in a great fiber show nearby - "Intersections 5: Colors, Concepts, Contours". Saw a cool show in Japan town, Ken Hamazaki's "Grateful Red" at Superfrog Galley. Had an amazing tour at Industry of Light and Magic. (the George Lucas "industry"!) And saw the film, "Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff" presented by the Mill Valley Film Festival in Marin, north of the city. Our time in Marin included visits with friends and exploring the arts at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts ("Mapworks, the Map as Art"), "Zaragoza" in San Anselmo, and meeting Donna Seager at her Gallery in San Rafael. This gallery has a wonderful collection of artists' books. It was interesting seeing alot of "local" artist's work and smaller venues on this trip instead of the usual museum exhibitions.



This month I am part of the exhibit "Library Foliage" located at Studio 2 Gallery in Austin, Texas. The theme relates to the altered book and is juried by John Sager. My assemblage features a small facsimile of a book, mounted on an antique book page.
