we brought exsilio to tom's house, and the girls helped me assemble it. looks so great in his living room.

as soon as my back unseizes, i'll get back to carving the SORRY totem pole. i also want to think of another piece to cut so i can last through the long cold winter.

just finished the glitter, in which i am now covered. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_1577.JPG and doweling the four pieces of the center stalk. b2ap3_thumbnail_IMG_1578.JPG  and i'm psyched cause i came up with the perfect name for the gigantron piece: exsilio! latin for spring, leap, or burst forth. i like it. 

basically, all that's left is to varnish the sides of the center stalk and cover the bottom puzzle-y piece in black satin. it's actually time to start thinking about the next project... wow. almost feels like i've given birth. this has taken nine months.

so i've taken what i feel is a big step by committing to the very tiny, very local, probably very little attended Town of Chevy Chase art show. it's the beginning of june, and i plan to have the big gigantic fountain/flower piece done for it. would be very cool if i could sell it then, but i'm not getting my hopes up.

then the URBN market bethesda invite shows up in my inbox and ... huh. just writing this, i realized that no way will i be able to show there. i could have maybe 2-3 pieces, and that just isn't right, right? most people who do these sorts of things have their tents, their set ups, their backlog of material. i have none of that. not ready.

i'll see how the TOCC thing goes, and if i don't sell it, we'll move forward with a pop-up show somewhere in bethesda.

good talk. thanks.

so Artomatic isn't happening, but i'm ok with this. decided to try creating a pop-up show in bethesda with barry and whoever else is interested. call me guys, let's do this.

meanwhile, listen to this awesome version of "Kashmir" by Songhoy Blues, a band from Mali.
