Small Steps

So often, I think we all want to move along faster towards our goals. Once we’ve gotten something we want to do in our minds, we want to make it happen right away. I am very much this way with everything– I want to start and quit and do things immediately, and I get disappointed when things don’t happen very quickly.

My relationship with art is this way; I want to be a full-time artist right now. I am slowly learning that very few things happen that way, and most goals require small regular steps.

I am proud to say that I have been keeping my eyes open for these small opportunities, and one of them is coming up this weekend. I will be showing some of my vessels in the Art Space at The Whole Earth Festival, a great crafty, community festival in my current hometown, Davis, CA.

If you’re in the area, come on out. It’s a crafty good time with lots of live music and a goal of as little waste as possible– you heard me correctly, this outdoor festival charges a deposit for reusable dishes among other waste saving strategies.

For your viewing pleasure, here is one of my newest vessels. I call it “Loud Vessel” because it has a stronger, darker style to it:

Some Thoughts

and then be ready for what will
come pouring from the spring."
