|A line of linocuts at the library|
So let's see... linocutting and printing happened Saturday to Monday, which you've already seen. Tuesday I drove down to Colorado Springs with a car full of linos to hang a show at the Penrose Library downtown. (It's a two-hour drive from here each way.) My printmaking buddies Jean, Jean, and Sally met me for lunch and afterwards I got to take a quick tour of the printmaking facilities at Colorado College. Color me green.
On my way out of town I got a call from Ralph at ArchAngel Productions. Turns out I'm going to be the Featured Artist for the Pikes Peak Library District's public art program in February! "When can you come to town to record an interview for a segment of Off the Wall?" EEK!
Of course I was on my way OUT of town, so tentatively agreed to come back at the end of the week.
|It's a map icon for a bike route. Fun, eh?|
Wednesday and Thursday I cut linos for the icon project and did work on another contract project. Thursday evening I helped the DM schlep his gear down the street for the first Dies Librorum event at our local independent bookstore, The Book Haven. David and our friend Ed entertained the crowd (and it WAS a crowd) with tunes on Chapman Stick, guitar, and native flute.
Yesterday it was back to Colorado Springs for the "taping" (remember when they used to call it taping?) of the interview footage, some errands, and a quick trip to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for a little sketching before heading back up into the mountains AGAIN.
Yup. Tired pilgrim.
But for now it looks like I'm home in the valley until the end of the month, when a crazy succession of workshop, show down, show up juggling occurs again. Whew!
