Pardon the radio silence, again. There’d been a lot of major changes in my life these past few months.

My divorce went final in April, I switched employers thrice, I was approved to rent a studio/ gallery space at the 2110 Gallery in downtown Sacramento, I was laid off on Halloween, the gallery will have new management by December 1st. Whew!

I found my creative voice again after months of not having time or the place to work on my art again. Having a creative space has helped a lot. I feel like I’ve made more progress since Halloween because I have more time in the studio. Meanwhile I want to share the photos of my dolls in their gallery setting…

The Trees of Knowing gang
Here’s the Trees of Knowing gang, a little worse for wear.

I’m currently working on another urban faery and a shrine that’s part of the Trees of Knowing story. The story has started to come together 3 nights ago. I had some sketches of paintings that started as a visual record of dreams I had. They turned out to be part of the story.

Working at frantic pace to make the colored studies for the story and at finding a new job and another place to live.

I also managed to finish these ancestor mice for my niece. A very belated birthday and early christmas present.

Do pray for me. I could really use it. My spirits are high but I’m still twitching in winds of uncertainty.

That’s what we call our little flat by the woods.
