Thirteen has been my lucky number for a long time...I can't quite remember exactly when it began, but it was solidified when I met the man who would later become my husband and found out he was born on December 13th.
For a while now, I have gone through in my mind all the reasons to not start a blog. The list went something like this:
- The world does not need another blog. (It really really does not. I know.)
- There are so many beautiful blogs way more sophisticated than what I can manage.
- I already have too many projects & commitments.
- My camera is sub-par.
- My computer is dying. For real.
Well, now it's 2013, and here I go.
What changed my mind? Hmm.
New York is a physically challenging city. I don't mean because we walk a lot (which we do) but because it takes so long to get around - whether you are walking, biking, taking the subway (or bus or train), or driving. This place is just huge. Which means it is difficult to see people as much as I would like. And we have less time for doing it, because we are in transit for so long each day.
I make art for many reasons, one of them being a deep desire to share. Some of you have been to my studio but most of you have not. And I wish you could come over. Consider this your formal invitation.
For the rest of you, I hope you will come in.
