springing forward

In Chicago, this is the month when we gain the most sunlight.  The past two days have really felt like spring, as the weather has warmed and I was finally able to shed my customary long parka and galoshes.  From late November until the time sprang one hour forward this week, I had willingly entered a sort of hibernation.  I came straight home from work each day and only ventured to my studio on weekends.  Though I did apply for shows every chance I got, which is something that did not require trudging through snowdrifts and enduring subzero temperatures.

I feel my hibernation paid off, as I am now slated for three shows in May and June.  I will have more details on them later.  Also, I've been re-reading The Artist's Way again.  A few weeks ago one of my weekly tasks was to create a collage.  Once it was complete, the collage was to be given a place of honor.  I can think of no better place of honor than right here on my blog, so here it is:

Every time I do these collages, I'm always surprised at the images I end up choosing.  It's like getting a message from my subconscious mind.  The desire for change seems to be the theme here, and I am happy to say that there are many changes in store right now.  Soon I will write about them here.  But I'm keeping them to myself for now, so you'll just have to wait.

I can tell you about my new Facebook page, though.  In an effort to keep my personal and professional lives separate (just typed "loves" by accident, quite an interesting Freudian slip), I have created a page that is strictly for sharing information about my art. Until I get 25 people to "Like" it, the page has a URL that's too long for anyone to remember, so I will just let you click on this link to get to the page.
