The aspens in the mountains near Santa Fe never fail to inspire me. Every season has its charms – the white leafless trunks in the deep snow of winter, the tiny tendrils of baby leaves in spring, the lush green of midsummer, but it is in Autumn that they are most magical. A friend likened the experience of strolling under the golden boughs to walking in Lothlorien.
Aspens to Support Animals
Through the end of this month I am using the inspiration of Aspens to support a worthy institution. I am donating 10% of sales of Aspen themed pieces for sale in my Etsy shop. Included are Originals, posters, journals and greeting cards. Take a look at what is available at my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/DECOfineartcollage
Recycle Santa Fe Art Festival
I have been preparing new work for the two big shows coming up in November. The first is the Recycle Santa Fe Arts Festival https://www.recyclesantafe.org/ which is on a weekend in the middle of November. I will be there in my booth on Saturday and Sunday, November 16 & 17, 2019, showing new work and offering many collage items for sale. This is one of the most popular shows in Santa Fe, with people flying in from all over the country to see how artisans have creatively reused and recycled.
You will be amused and amazed. https://santafe.org/Community_Convention_Center/
The following weekend, on November 23, I will participate in a pop-up show at the famous MeowWolf - this will be the Saturday before Thanksgiving and we expect an enthusiastic attendance. I will have a booth and show Original Collages and offer many gift items for sale.
Got to get back to the easel – one month to go and much to do!
What Goes On:
Change in Plans
Just like everyone else in the world, I am adjusting my plans and shifting my expectations. Until the crisis has passed and safety in Santa Fe is assured, I will be working from my studio in my home, doing my bit to help flatten the curve.
