Catching up!

Boy,  its been a while since I have updated my blog.  Been very busy working on some great projects that I figured it was time for a update.

Firstly,  I wanted to announce a couple of new works on the literary front.   My work and my horse Cappy have been featured in this new publication ( Horse Nations ) just now being released by Oxford University Press   And….I also have been co writing a book on a beadwork collection that is just now headed to print and I will have more to post about this in the next month or so.

I have also been busy with several museum projects and also have been doing some lectures about the effects of artifakes and Hobbyism and the future of art collecting and integrity of collections.   I had a great lecture in November at the Portland Art Museum,  to packed house,  and my next lecture will be on April 23rd, 2015 at the Denver Art Museum. I am finding great reception to what I have to say about this often contentious subject.

And of course I continue to do my artwork and restoration work.  I had a successful show of my art glass that ended in late November at the Maryhill Museum of Art.   Quite a few of the glassworks featured in the show have now found happy homes with several respected art museums and collectors and I have to admit a little pride happening with that :-)

Lastly,  I should have new works to start posting again soon.   Here is a almost completed quilled shirt I have been working on this winter and with all intent I should be done with it in a week or two.   Ironically…it is a copy of a shirt I previously made.   When it is done I will do a more complete write up of it.

So…onward to more good work I hope and a great year.
