I'm lucky to live near Spindleworks, which is a non profit art center for adults with disabilities. I went over there this week and talked to a group of artists about my sketchbooks, as part of a program they have called "Lunch with an Artist". It was so inspiring to meet the artists and staff, and to see all their art. The walls are covered with drawings, paintings, weavings, embroideries. I wanted to buy everything. The artists I talked to were so engaged in making their art, and very curious about what I do. I agreed to come back and show them my poured acrylic technique. The environment there is so rich! It's every artist's dream of room after room of looms, paints, shop supplies, drawing space. Spindleworks has been in existence for more than 30 years now, and they succeed in making creative space available to these unique artists in an exemplary way. The above is just a small sample of what is going on there. They have a shop too!

This is the work of Maria Kristofersson. Her website is here.The pale palette appeals to me, and the simplicity and reference to everyday objects. The tile that looks like a dishtowel just thrills me. I'm studying ceramics right now with Ingrid Bathe, (here), so I am really looking at lots of ceramicist's work. I've always loved ceramics, but when I did a ceramics workshop at Haystack the summer before last I knew I would be exploring the subject more deeply. I love drawing on clay. Ingrid has her studio 5 minutes from my house...so I guess I had to go with the rightness of that too!
