Since I need to clear more space and rid myself of things that are using old energy (in order to let new energy in!) and I also need to generate funds rather quickly (after-effects of nasty car wreck are depleting my funds rapidly, sigh), I thought I would try my blogger site to offer various small things at good prices.
My website has a store page for supplies and some of the galleries have available work. This page will include less "gallery" type offerings.

For example:
All by Jan Beaney and Jean Littlejohn, in "new/unused" condition:
Book 3 - Bonding and Beyond
Book 4 Transfer to Transform
Book 7 Trees as a Theme
Book 9 New Dimensions
Book 12 A Sketch in Time
Book 13 No Stone Unturned
Book 14 Connections

purchase all for $125 plus $5.00 postage (in the US)

**On another note, my website blog is pretty active these days and I am also in the process of updating the web galleries.

I'm not sure how this posting is going to work but it seems nearly impossible for me to change my wordpress blog, so we'll see. a grand experiment.

end of the month

We're here in lovely Colorado. I've been here a week, doing lecture and workshop for the Front Range Group. Michael flew down yesterday; his family has a reunion today. Tomorrow we drive home. It's been busy and wonderful. A day trip to Boulder, a day trip to Denver and galleries, in between some intense time in the workshop. I learned a lot!
It will be a treat to be home for almost a month. Studio time!!!
meanwhile, this is a test to see how having my blog on my website actually works. see you soon.

up for air

it's been waaay too long hasn't it. if you are reading, thank you for your patience. There's not much worse than a static blog.

I'm sitting in an airport, yet again, waiting for a plane, yet again, but on my way home until the weekend, then off to Colorado for a week.
I have nice long stretches at home across the Summer, will be in the studio, in the gardens and perhaps avoiding the office as much as possible.
(the paperwork piles up whether I deal with it or not. Why not take a deliberate break?)

The traveling has taken me to wonderful and exciting places the last while. There hasn't been time to process all the wonderful elements - architecture, people, landscape, music, food and so much more. I look forward to seeing how things percolate to the surface.

be well.
do more work!

snowed in

41.5" h x 14.5" w
with two details

last week i found this fabric in my cupboard and began stitching. No plan, no pre-conceived notions; just stitching out and drawing in a little at a time. It was a cathartic experience.
My method with this type of work is to stitch on the whole cloth, then go in with color. It's a circling back to my adventures with paint, paper and canvas: a process that feels like coming home.

catching up in the studio

In between sorting and pitching and trying to reorganize my work space, I have seen my way back to work. Still working very small, but still working.

a dark little piece. I played with texturing the surface in a number of ways including free form pintucking.
The hanging device is cotonwood root.
