DevonSentCards: another from the V&A Collection, this time using a rose stamp of theirs to watermark stamp the Kraft cardstock, then their ribbon, glittery rose and sentiment tag. You probably wouldn't want to post this one, because of the depth the flower adds, but maybe a special card to give to your mum or gran on Mother's Day? The inside has a decorated area for writing on too. These will be in the Occasions multipacks at the end of the month.

It definitely took some "teamwork, dreamwork" to get this meal on the table. But when you're renovating the dining room and committed to eating as many meals as possible at the table as a family, 7:00 suppers are just the name of the game some days.
A poll for those of you who feel like speaking up. Were you to see one of these four images on a postcard, which would most compel you to come to the show? Things to consider:
1. The show is Oct-Dec in Asheville, NC but there is no overarching Autumn theme.
2. Image 3 is actually square, but I'm stuck showing in horizontal format. Most of the important info is here though.
3. Does size matter? Does mood matter? I generally make small, glum paintings and that's just the way it is. None of these are the biggest or smallest pieces...but they feel solid and representative of what I do.
I tend to think of shows (or groups of recently finished paintings) along the lines of a record album. Thinking old pre-Garage Band / YouTube days here...Artist and label had to pick a song to promote as the lead single...but no one really knows if that will be the hit. Meanwhile, a deep album cut / track 8 might be the one that people take to most affectionately. Now, lots of albums have 2-3 great songs and the rest is "filler" never destined to make a future Greatest Hits album. We aim never to make those...but some things just don't resonate.
Ive got these Luminaries in progress right now! If you’ve seen my Stories you know that my clay froze while I was gone and killed the bacteria in clay that keeps it plastic. I had to throw 12 globes to get 3 that didn’t collapse! But they will be ready in 2 weeks.

1911. (5 images) I’m totally in love with this unique Craftsman home! It was one of the first homes built in the Fieldston Historic District, for a lawyer named Frederick Camp. The architect was Nathaniel Vickers, who built a number of other houses in Fieldston, and the NYC area. Vickers lived to be a very active 103. Originally from England, he spent his later years in Kew Gardens, Queens, playing golf and designing the occasional building. The second image is of him at 102 in an article from Life Magazine (Jan. 24, 1949), “Speaking of Pictures ... Eight Americans Show How to Enjoy Being Over 100.” The third and fourth images are from a brief NY Times article about his 101st birthday. And the fifth image is Vickers at 100, printed in the Tawas Herald (MI) in 1946.
