it's been surprisingly cold this week - i've reluctantly had to admit to myself that fall is here. i've had the wood stove going almost constantly, and it's been super cozy to sit next to it while drawing or catching up on emails. i love the colors of fall, but i am always slow to warm to the realities of extra layers and frost in the mornings. last weekend i did a lot of driving - i went to a wedding along the coast in massachusetts and then, the next day, a funeral in downeast maine, and the leaves i saw everywhere were overwhelmingly, pretty much take-your-breath-away bittersweet + lovely. it was nice to have all of that time alone in the car to soak it all in.
this time of year always makes me want to buy new smartwools. i'd love to draw designs for them - i love a lot of the recent patterns i've seen them put out. plus - smartwool tights? how smart is that?
i am really excited to go and see swoon's installation at space gallery here in portland. i'll try to share more about it once i've visited.
right now i'm working on pieces for a few different upcoming group shows, several art/craft holiday shows i'll be doing around maine, new card sets, and some plans for some special holiday items. it's fun and varied and i love thinking about it all and planning everything. more info on all of this soon.
thanks for reading!
