Mostly women, and it all started with Emma Gonzalez
I really dig Kara Swisher. Found her when she was interviewed on a podcast I enjoy, Longform. So witty and sharp, she covers Silicon Valley and the tech beat. Smart and fearless. Here she is asking the questions we all want to ask of Facebook, straight up.
Don't give a hoot about these people but the news is so unrelentingly bleak, horrible, disturbing, awful ... one event that is not, that is colorful, light, fun, pretty - is a wedding. And who ever heard of elderflower?
Is a verdant flowery paradise. Not overstated. The air is so sweet from the wild multiflora rose. The dogwoods are just finished but the azalea are blazing. My spring crop has bolted with the warm weather but the irises are wonderful this year, and the peonies are just starting to open. Just gotta do a flowery poster or two:
Loving this coffee mug that came from the Supreme Court giftshop. When it is warm, the text on the surface fades to reveal the winner of the case, such as Bush v Gore (sad to be reminded of that). Also what an amazing young person this Emma Gonzalez is. Her address to the crowd of hundreds of thousands in DC this past Saturday at the March for Our Lives was riveting.
I am delighted to be part of the Cville Arts cooperative. The gallery is located on Charlottesville's Downtown Mall and has a landmark out front - this gorgeous mosaic loveseat. There are 59 artists in the gallery and a range of original work is shown there. We all take turns working at the gallery, or doing work for the cooperative effort. I do enjoy working at the gallery because it gives me time to meet fellow artists, to explore the artwork there and to meet people who come in to the gallery. many are visitors to Charlottesville, and as a twenty-one year resident, I can share some the collective wisdom and information of all those years to the visitor or newcomer.
The view is a familiar one, from Skyline drive looking west towards Harrisonburg and the profile of Massanutten Mountain is sharp against the fading light of an afternoon sky. I love how the mist rises up from the valley at this time of day.
I've had a lot of requests for smaller dog posters - seem so many people have, like me, filled up their wall space yet need a poster of their beloved companion. So, 8x10 dog posters are now available, in the exact same brilliant colors, with similar simple subdued black wood frames and glass fronts - which also have a stand leg in the back so they can be displayed on a desk, or a dresser, or other furniture.
Love it! A tribute to a four legged friend. So glad to do this portrait poster.
This series lends itself well to customizing the colors, shown here in warm hues to match an interior
Will give some thought to what it may be. Have received many great suggestions, and requests which may form the nugget of the themes.
