White Bird, Green Boot
22" x 6" x 4"
ceramic, terra sigillata, engobes, glazes

We are having warm days, no fog.  Perfect for painting walls.  Of remembering, too.  I have a kerchief wrapped around my hair to protect it from splattering paint. Instead my face is freckled in neutral hues of grays, greens and mocha. Herr laughs when he sees me.  I hear a dove fluttered outside the window, making squeaky noises, landing clumsy at the bird feeder. Then smiling, head shaking, Herr admonishes me for not wearing shoes climbing up a ladder.  You must wear shoes, Momo, for your safety.  All I can find are garden boots and one brown sock.  We are moving soon and things are not in their usual place. 

Storyteller was sold to travelers from Australia.  It is a good feeling to know that this piece will journey to a faraway land and become a part of someone's home and story.

Hue and Cry over Purple

To Market To Market...
Painting over my purple wall.
Using an old brush and primer
Have to have a last hoorah
Before the promised priming

Now the wall is a finished
    a quiet neutral hue
No one would ever know
there once was a giant bird here
shouting in purple delight

this artist
that painting large
was more fun
than priming any wall.
(and a plain wall more marketable than one of my

Off I go to neutralize
more things...back tomorrow.

Point of Intersection in a Storyteller's Journey

It all started with a key found without a lock.
and dreams of a white fox (or puppy?)


 There are toes.  Fancy free with black polish.

And a bowl with a bit of 23 kt. gold leaf.
It doesn't look shiny in this photo, but it is very shiny in person.
Like spun gold.
Oh, I mustn't forget to mention the hat.  Why a silly hat?  
It completed the look. And she insisted. 
X marks the spot . Or is it a dot?
Meanings apparent and left up to you.
the past, the present and future combined 
Storyteller's Journey

The Package of Patience

Packing day.
Should have named this piece, Patience.

Trying to work out new business cards and get to the print shop.

 figured out how to package these (sold)

Got things inventoried, packed and delivered for upcoming invitational: 


 Good company, good wine (this town is in the heart of wine country) and best of all---good art!

When is a Rabbit not a Fox?

Herr said, "But that's a fox not a rabbit" when he peeked at the above jpeg.  But life in my studio is just like that---sometimes things happen along the way and rabbits become foxes. Just like a good quirky folk tale.
