“The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery”

Francis Bacon

There is nothing like working hard on a body of art then seeing it well lit on big, beautiful walls. (Or as I accidentally said to a guest,”well hung and well lit.”) Thanks to John Metcalf, we did so at the Independence Building in Ridgway this weekend.

So much fun to then throw the party, and show up in hopes of handing our guests a little of the beauty we see in this world.

“The main thing is to be moved, to love, to hope, to tremble, to live.”

– Auguste Rodin

To tremble, to live, to hope, to see things in a new light, to see new things – these are all what I live for, along with love.

My dear friend Shauna Tewksbury showed her photographic prints including digital landscape explorations, her crane series and experimental scanner prints.

Jill Rikkers dazzled us with her brilliant metalwork in the form of irresistable earrings, neckacles, belt buckles and home decor.

I exhibited new red raven art, bicycle paintings, and this year’s larger works including a large aspen forest painting and white rose painting.

And now, back to the drawing board!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by. It was a packed building with abundant holiday cheer.
