New Work and an Upcoming Show

I've been busy making art and enjoying a summer teaching schedule for the past few months.  I have a show coming up in September and October at the gallery in the University Lutheran Church in Harvard Square -- stayed tuned for news of the opening and more!
Meanwhile, here are some of the pieces I've finished.

I'll have a few new windows in this show -- sadly, I will not be at the opening on Friday :(  

Check out the show, though. It's sure to be a good one!

And this moves me....

Opening the Heart Through Ecstatic Poetry: Coleman Barks with David Darling at TEDxUGA

The blurb that goes with this YouTube video:

"For 30 years, until retirement in 1997, Dr. Coleman Barks taught poetry and creative writing at the University of Georgia. As a professor emeritus, Dr. Barks still resides in Athens and writes and publishes under his own imprint, Maypop Books, as well as HarperCollins, the University of Georgia Press, and others. In addition to several poetry collections and books, Dr. Barks is the author of numerous translations of Rumi and has been a student of Sufism since 1977. His work with Rumi, a Persian mystical poet, was the subject of an hour-long segment on Bill Moyers's Language of Life series on PBS, and he is a featured poet and translator in Bill Moyers's poetry special, "Fooling with Words." Dr. Barks makes frequent international appearances and is well-known throughout the Middle East. His work has contributed to an extremely strong following of Rumi in the English-speaking world. Dr. Barks received his Ph.D. in English from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, an honorary doctorate from Tehran University in 2006, and in March 2009 was inducted to the Georgia Writers Hall of Fame."

New Work

Even with all the snow days that we've had here in New England, I've been too busy to get into the studio every day this winter, but I did finish a piece last night that I am very happy with. 

All those little dark spots in the piece are ceramic figures:
A pill bottle I found on the beach in Eastport, ME

A sweet little owl that I found at Nesting on Main

a bear
and a rose
 I also wanted to share a window that I finished at the end of last year but never managed to photograph until now:

A New Window for a New Year

Last fall, while on an antique hunt with Shelley White - my friend and flower artist extraordinaire (you can see her beautiful work over at her blog Bow Street Flowers)- I found a beautiful 4 foot by 2 foot antique cabinet door at the New England Demolition and Salvage in New Bedford, MA. (NOTE: Check this amazing place out before it closes! -- they are trying to sell the business, but if they cannot they will end up closing).  
Here is what I did with that cabinet door:

This piece is a promise of spring as we face another big snow storm here in New England.

It has been a year!

Hello, all!  
It has been almost one year since I posted here.  My absence is a sign of the absorbing work of healing that I have been engaged it. So much has changed since I sat down to compose a post here.  But I am not yet ready to try to put all of that into words.  So, I turn to pictures.

At the request of my dear mother, I am posting the mosaic work I have done since January 2014.

Here you go, mom!
