The Joy of Framing

An art show in the making.

I helped hang my show at Silver Circle Gallery today. I'm tired but feeling good. Another artist wandered in as we were working out the arrangement, offering appreciative and thoughtful feedback. He kept referring to my work as "delicious." That's a new one for me, and a nice one.

But especially, I like seeing the work transformed. A piece in progress amidst the clutter of my studio comes alive when given a frame, and breathing room on a wall. Suddenly it has a voice, and, if it's good, something to say, and I am reminded that I'm making something that has meaning.

I'm also reminded that sharing my work with the world is the best way to get inspired to make more.
