Phew! Holiday sales are done! Culminating in an insane 4 day three event throwdown of standing in the cold, blearily staring out at the world through sleep deprived crusted eyes, and deliriously hawking wares on all the energy a handful of peanuts, several mouthfuls of new improved flavor Goldfish, and half a box of chocolate chip cookies can provide as a dinner. Ah the romance of the life of an artist!
Well, anyway, I’m done with the gymnastics for the time being, and I can comfortably sit back for a few weeks and get fat on my couch watching all the new DVDs I sprang for on Amazon as my little treat to myself (Funny how I just earned my bread on a solid campaign of “buying local” and the first thing I plunk down for is 22 items from my Amazon wishlist…. Oh the hypocrisy!)
But the Holidays are a time for sharing, so today in my first day of recovery I decided to check out what the internet was sharing with me, and came across something I can certainly regift to you guys.
These are from the recent William Powhida show at Postmasters Gallery. See more from the show at his website. These were also posted in the fabulous Brainpickings blog, which if you aren’t reading you should be.
In more things worth regifting, check out these drawings that are from a project by Dave DeVries to imagine what children’s drawings would look like if painted realistically:
In other news Juana, Geoff, and Jeff and I had visits at my Saturday and Sunday sale from fellow potter/blogger Lori Buff and an assortment of other potting/collecting blog readers (Tom Johnson, Fred Bowling)(Its always embarrassing knowing that people who actually know me in person are reading my capering blog blather. Making a fool out of myself on the internet seems far less costly when the audience doesn’t know with certainty that I also have a serious life as a citizen/neighbor/potter….). And then we also got a special treat visit from my and Geoff Pickett’s old instructor Ron Meyers. And talking shop, life, and local events with my neighbors, fellow potters, and customers is always great. So I sold a few pots, but even more important I got to hang out and commune with some clay enthusiasts and otherwise interesting folks. What a blast!
Happy Holidays all! Good cheer and pleasant potting all round!
