My Dad always uses the term big doings in a sarcastic way. So this announcement is big doings for me in my seemingly small world. It’s official contract signed & delivered, I got my first solo show at the Kimball Art Center in Park City!! The show will open February 5 & run 9 weeks. Also I will be the featured artist at the March gallery stroll in Park City- triple !!! The show is called
and will include 25 works of winterscapes of Park City, winter sports (skiing, snow boarding etc…), large resort scapes & scenes of the town under all that white stuff.
You can check out more about the show & see how official I am at
I love it when people spread the word about my work so in turn- this musician is out of the great state of UT & I can honestly say I am in love with her new album. Her work is filled with truth and beauty. Plus I get a free download if I plug her & I love her so much- I want that new download. She is a Mommy, an artist, and creating for good. Support her.
I have been meaning to post about this fab trade I did for awhile. Are you jealous (it’s even better in person)?? Anyway I met this amazing quilter, who also does things like this. We got to chatting then got to trading…. One day I would LOVE to own one of her insane quilts but until then I am super happy with this cool piece.
This little bat got croup the other night & the next night Abe followed suit. I am new to this croup / asthma territory & it has sent me through 2 rolls of tums. Top it off with a broken sewer pipe for 2 days that made our house smell like you know what. The most shining moments of my life will not include the past 48 hours. It was ugly , the mom I said I would never be kind of ugly.
If you haven’t had to deal with croup in you kids before, thank your lucky stars. The nights usually go something like this 1:00 am, bark bark bark- Is that a dog?? No it is your child’s throat closing in. You rush in to hear the bark & the strider shallow breathing. Then its only natural to argue with your spouse, & run around like a chicken with your head cut off. Should we go to the ER? No take her outside first, okay. Outside she’s cold get a blanket- back outside, back inside time for a popsicle, get ice water!! Back outside, should we go to the ER? Are her lips blue?? If we can wait it out with home remedies that will save us $300 bucks. Okay lets wait…… unless her lips turn blue.
FYI: Croup is a reaction to a virus, some kids get it some don’t. So the same virus in one kid may just be a cold while in another it can cause croup, kids with asthma seem to be more likely to get it.
If your wondering whether that brown tree in the back ground is a Halloween decoration, it’s not it’s just dead. We use what we have around here….
Some friends invited us to the Red Butte Gardens After Dark Festival. I have to say I was really impressed.. The kids made magic potions, masks, Aborigine dolls, & Japanese lanterns that they then launched into the pond. Very creative & the kids loved it.
Sometimes it pays to live in Kaysville, your 2 year olds having a tantrum in the car- want to get out & feed the horsey? Easy fix, even if just temporary…. Or now he may have a tantrum to get out & feed the horse every time we pass one, what have I done???
" Creation has always been a huge part of my life no matter the medium. The human experience remains at the forefront of my work and motivates my concepts. It helps me absorb moments in life and define relationships. I am drawn to forms simplified and unique color palettes. I don't wish to be labeled by a particular media, I prefer to have them all at my disposal."
