something freshly birdish

there's been so much art in my life over the past week. last friday, the checkout girl and i drove down for jen's opening at nahcotta in portsmouth. her work of late has centered around these gorgeous papercuts, simple colors, incredible patterns. it was beautiful, and a treat to see jen. and then we treated ourselves to the friendly toast too!

below, isaac's mask. art teacher, to isaac: "isaac, are you done with your shading...OH."

and JENNY HOLZER on tuesday night. we heard her speak, and then the audience trooped outside in the cold to watch this projection (words by the polish poet wislawa szymborska) move mesmerizingly down the front of the portland museum of art. it was so striking, strangely moving (and did i mention, COLD?).

finally, my own humble contribution to this week in artistic endeavor, the final words of j.m. barrie, "i can't sleep."

It was truly a treat to hang out with you--and I LOVE this hoop! It's my favorite so far and would be perfect above my sister's bed. She never sleeps. ;-)
