Spring is springing…kind of.

I actually went out for a walk in a tank top and flannel shirt today. Yesterday I spent a blissful hour+ in my favorite junkyard. My mental heath has taken a turn for the better.

Yeah, I know, it’s been a long time since my last post. So here is what you don’t know:

The heron is finished and installed and it is fabulous if I do say so myself. The grand unveiling was supposed to happen last week but that wonderful spring snowstorm put the kibosh on the festivities. So they have been postponed to Thursday April 12th at 4 p.m. Why aren’t I posting pictures? Well, I want to keep it a surprise until it’s official viewing. Of course if you happen to be at Piney Run Park in Carroll County, MD in the next few weeks, you could walk down to the main dock…just sayin’. (just don’t post photos until after the 12th). If you can’t make that…here’s a sneak peek during installation.

In other news, I have been finishing up some things in the studio that got put on hold until the heron left the building. Here’s a woven piece that I have been working on for a while. It is 82″ long and is designed to go on the floor.

And finally, I thought I would share my photos from yesterday. I think the classes I have been taking are helping me to focus my ability to see stuff and to capture it more clearly. I am still working with the theme of aging and decay…

See you in April!!!

  1. I drove by the Great Blue Heron installation today. It is spectacular!
    Hopefully you’ll have a great turn-out on April 12th at 4:00. See you then–and sooner I hope.

  2. Virginia,

    Just wondering if you use Photoshop, Lightroom, or some other image processing/adjusting programs in your workflow. Please pardon the jargon – I hate the term “workflow” but it is an appropriate description, and such software can be used successfully: particularly for B/W images, to have some good means of increasing or decreasing contrast, and for color adjustments in color images.

    Congratulations on your journey.

    1. Hi Larry. Yes, I have photoshop and I put everything into Lightroom first. I don’t like to do a lot of post-production editing, I usually try to lighten, darken and add contrast or to bring down the highlights…small things like that.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
