1) I finished -- and submitted -- a project for possible publication. If this isn't the right fit, I'll send the project to another magazine.
2) I created a new piece for The Gloaming, a group show I'm proud to be a part of at Etui Fiber Arts Gallery in Larchmont, NY. The five of us -- Natalya Aikens, Deborah Boschert, Robin Ferrier, Kristin LaFlamme and myself -- created new artwork based on the gloaming, a poetic (and somewhat archaic) word for dusk, twilight, the magic hour.
In a fit of madness, I pieced together blocks (leaving errors for spontaneity)
which I then cut apart and re-pieced into a new format.
These became the "sun" and the "moon" for my piece, Betwixt, inspired by the horizon and the blur between night and day.
Here's a view of the large pieces in the exhibition (we agreed on a common width, but left length to the purview of our own inspiration):
|Pieces from L to R: Robin Ferrier, Vivien Zepf, Deborah Boschert,|
Kristin LaFlamme, and Natalya Aikens
And a view of the small, 12" x 12" pieces:

3) My parents came for a visit that included celebrating my dad's 86th birthday and watching my daughter dance in one of her recital performances.
