a preview of september 12

Here's a little preview of what you can expect to see at the opening of "In My Own Backyard" the evening of September 12 at Diddywopps & Keeffers. The show is just over two weeks away and I'll be posting more of these tidbits between now and then.

I said before that I've been running in four different directions, but to be perfectly honest, it's only three - graphic designer, mixed media sculptor, and wannabe farmer. Which brings us to the subject of change... the designation of wannabe farmer is changing to just farmer. Okay, so in some folks minds, with just under 4 acres that's stretching the term quite a bit, but that's okay. It will be a micro-mini farm, or as I'm calling it, "the tiny little farm at Tulip Tree Hill". The core of the farm will be a greenhouse for growing heirloom vegetables and flower seedlings. Additionally, there will be a market garden for produce and cut flowers both of which will be sold at growers markets. I'll still be a graphic designer (my primary source of income) and a mixed media sculptor. And so this blog's somewhat split personality will birth a new blog about the farm. The only changes you'll see here will be a lack of gardening/farming posts and hopefully more emphasis on art. That way the folks interested in the tiny little farm won't have to wade through art posts and those who like art won't have to read my ramblings about farming. Unless of course, you want to.

Speaking of art, my new show at Diddywopps is opening September 12, but I need to have everything completed and delivered by the 6th. I. am. not. ready. Oh, I'll get everything done, and it will all be wonderful of course, but things will be hopping out in the studio!

in my own backyard

I have been quite negligent in keeping up with this blog lately and have no excuses, really, except that I feel like I've been running in 4 different directions at the same time. And when you're doing that, it's hard to get anywhere at all!

One of the directions will soon bear fruit with the opening of my new show at Diddywopps & Keeffers. The show runs from September 10 - October 19, with the opening reception on Saturday September 12, from 6-8 p.m. If you're in the neighborhood, do stop by - everyone is welcome. One of the reasons I like Diddywopps so much is that Tami has created such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, without the pretensions. Just fine art and craft, presented beautifully.

Hope to see you there!
