Back in January, the excuse for not contributing to our blog was I was busy – and then 6 months goes by, my conscious is “yakking at me”… you’re not writing anything – not even sending out an e-newsletter… why? I guess – there is no excuse. So – let’s revive the creative conversation, what do you want to hear? The events, trips, projects, and exhibits we’ve been involved in have been exciting and successful. It’s time to share.
Business has been up & down, busy – not busy, exciting, boring (yes, I said boring)… but overall, our clients & projects have been great and we wouldn’t change a thing. GC & I have both been exploring better ways of doing tasks and reevaluating how to do the best at our craft… that’s design, photography, and illustration. I’ve also reconnected with old friends through Facebook – wow what an exciting ride. Some of our current and future happenings are:
- My new photos (Bermuda) are up at the Workhouse Photography Group – the show goes through July 18th.
- One of my photos (Wind) was juried into the Greenspiration show at the Workhouse. The show is through June 13th (see – I told you I was late in this post). Here are the works that are in the show. http://docs.google.com/present/view?id=ddz3k33s_178gwprbshd&interval=5
- But, an annual event that GC & I are getting excited to be a part of is the 6th Annual Manassas Wine & Jazz Festival on June 20th (Fathers Day). For more informaiton and tickets, visit: http://historicmanassas.mymediaroom.com/wire/events/viewevent.aspx?id=9133. GC will be exhibiting and selling some of his newest paintings – I’ll have my photos and notecards. (some new stuff & older pieces… come early for some very special bargains on them!).
So, besides our “happenings” I ask myself daily one simple question… “how can we stay focused on the creative and get excited about stuff…?” I’m thinking it’s the pleasant memories & images from our recent cruise to Bermuda (fresh air, bright colors, and that oh so beautiful crystal blue water) — but, it could also be our outdoor camping adventure in Harpers Ferry, WV this past weekend. Each day is new, every experience is new, and I am just thankful that I am sharing my creative adventures with my soulmate.
Here are some recent photos from our trips, including my piece “Wind” that’s in the Greenspiration show.
