I'm working on several art pieces and hoping to exhibit a few soon.  I'm also working on functional pieces (YaarWare) and jewelry.  I send these pieces out to Hot Sand in Asbury Park, NJ, The Monmouth Museum in Lincroft, NJ and The National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia [PA].

Here is a sneak peek of a study I just completed.  This is only 2 x 4 inches.  The final work will be approximately 10 x 12 inches.  It may look similar to this, it may not! LOL.  The concept will definitely remain the same.

Title:  Arms Race
Medium: Fused and kiln formed glass with clay frame.
Comments/ Feedback welcome.

Howdy Blog World:
I've been on a long sabbatical.  It seems there are not enough hours in the day for an artist to blog, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, teach and then ACTUALLY make art!  In any case, I'm going to attempt to post here at least once a month and keep you all informed about my upcoming classes, exhibits, etc.  Thank you :)

Keeping up with Technology

Artists today have to stretch themselves thin.  Not only do we try to grow and progress as artists, we have to know how to market ourselves.  We juggle making art along with entering juried shows, applying for grants or fellowships, filling out RFP's (Requests for Proposals), soliciting museum gift shops and art galleries and working as teachers or giving workshops. Many of us manage and promote our own websites, design and produce our own print material- postcards, business cards, etc. We have to learn how to use social media-Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and on and on.  On the other hand, most of us can afford to do these things as they don't cost hundreds/thousands of dollars.  We have opportunities to broadly market ourselves in ways that would have been too costly in the past.  I used to hire a printing company to produce my print media and it was really expensive. 

It's easy to get lost in the business of art.  I know I find myself doing so much with social media, that two or three weeks go by and I realize I haven't touched any glass!

I would love to write a book on the business of art, but I don't know when I'll ever have time :)
