OMG I've been sick...

Got an upper respiratory infection that was a total tribute to when I used to smoke! Horrible...the cough is still lingering. The feeling in my chest actually made me crave cigarettes...the lengths I would go to as a smoker to continue to be able to smoke through bronchitis - not cool...and I am still very happy that I'm not a smoker anymore.

But I've basically been in a horizontal position with sudaphed, mucinex, nyquil and a box of kleenex within arms reach for the last week and a half. Luckily my husband was able to take care of me though over the weekend he was struck down too :(. I'm feeling significantly better which is good, though the coughing gives me a headache and I still keep the kleenex close.

Life keeps rolling though...
John has a swim meet this weekend, DII championships...hoping he qualifies for DIs in 2 weeks. I should probably sign up to officiate for a session or 2...

The weekend in between is First Friday for March. I will be in an art market at the honeytree gallery 504 E. 18th St, Unit 102, KCMO - Please stop by and say hi if you're in the Crossroads District on March 5.

If you are in Chicago on March 5, please stop by the ARC Gallery for the opening of the Materiality show. I have 2 pieces that were accepted :)

Application Accepted!!!

Very exciting :)
2 of my pieces were accepted into the ARC Gallery's Materiality show opening March 5th (I believe).

The best part is the other work in the show is really good! It's always a big compliment to show along side talented artists!

I hope I can make it to Chicago for the opening, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that one...

Happy though no matter which way it works out! :)

ARC Gallery | Materiality | application accepted or rejected

I do not know yet!!!
They extended the deadline to submit your work...
Which meant more work...but that's cool...
Though it's not a huge gallery as I understand it...
The juror has made the first cut and so far I'm still in...
But they have to cut even more...
But it's like the prospectus was written just for my series: domestic | domesticated!
A part of me thinks I still have a good chance that one of my pieces will be accepted...
But then I know that I'm a total "unknown"...
Anyway, they said we should hear today...
Keep your fingers crossed for me :)
