I want to thank Chad Olcott and Alison Landon for urging me to do an Artist's Talk yesterday at Mulberry's Home, Chad's beautiful home furnishings store in Oakland, which is all decked out for Christmas. It felt good to be surrounded by beautiful objects and an appreciative audience who came to hear about my approach to making art, which is essentially, "just do it."
Fall makes me nostalgic. Loss is everywhere I look. But books are a comfort. I should be letting them go too, but no. Each one sparks a memory of where and when it was read. Solace is found in their stories.
