Departure and Arrival



Sending this package out into the world really was nerve wracking.

It signifies the culmination of a long process which began back in February of 2014.  In February 2014, I was invited to submit work for an invitational curated by Nancy Crow. Without a second thought, I accepted and began a long quiet period of making 5 works 90x 90 inches maximum size. Of those pieces I submitted, I am very excited to announce that “Time Fragments #2 ” has been accepted into Color Improvisations 2 .

I have never been more nervous to pack up a piece in a simple bag and box and sent it off to Germany last week. I didn’t realize how much I was holding my breath that it arrived safely. And not until I got the email today informing me that it did, did I relax and start to get excited.   I can’t show you any images yet until the show opening. But you will see it as I will share photos from the opening because my husband Marc and I are traveling to Germany to attend the opening.

Now you know why things have been kind of quiet around here. Whew!  It arrived safely.

    Fantastic! I am glad the art work made it safely, and I am so glad to hear that you are going to the opening. It is going to be an amazing event. And you get to share it with Marc. How great is that? Wonderful.

    Glad your work made it to Ginie. Mine is in limbo now, after having arrived in Frankfort on Thursday morning. Assuming it’s in Customs. Nice to get this work out of my life. Will see you at the Opening in March!
