Happy Autumn

I've been totally slacking here lately - with good reason! I've been super busy, working long hours at the gallery the last two weeks while we've been installing new exhibitions. Plus I've had a ceramic commission to finish at our old studio and I just completed my first painting commission - three pieces for a print application (I hope to share more details soon), which I was approached with only two weeks before the deadline - the deadline being the same day as the exhibition openings we were working towards. yikes

It worked out well that all this business happened in September, because I always feel a surge of energy at the beginning of the Fall. You know, that 'back-to-school' rush. Even though I haven't been in school for five years, I still feel that sense of anticipation and excitement to start something new. Everything is done now and things are getting back to normal, so hopefully I can get back in the habit of posting more regularly.

For now, here is a random picture of a bug that I took on our camping trip last month. Does anyone know what kind of insect this is?


  1. It kind of looks like a stinkbug. I could be wrong, but they're supposed to be pretty prevalent this time of year so that's my best guess.

  2. I've been wondering how the painting commission was going! Sounds like you got it all done, and of course you did!

    I don't know what that bug is, but it's terrifying! Haha

  3. Laura - I just googled 'stink bug' and I think you are right! I'm glad I didn't disturb him or he would have gotten all stinky on me.

    Anabela - I did get it done! It went really well. The designer was really good to work with - it was a totally positive experience. How are your Little Winter preparations going? I hope you have a little of that 'back-to-school' Fall productivity rush too!

  4. Carly, I miss you.
    You're blog helps with this issue, but still, wouldn't it be nice to have a cup of tea in person some time soon??? Ah well. Skype tea?
    Glad to hear about your commission and other stuff all going so well - huge congratulations to you on all fronts!

  5. P.S. I spelled 'you're' wrong. Oh well.

  6. I miss you too Kerri! We should have Skype tea soon for sure.
