One Year Ago

Well long time since a post. One year ago today the moving trucks with our possessions arrive at our new home in Albuquerque. What a year it has been!
The health update is OK- Ron's eyes are healed and he has the new lenses in his frames and can see clear finally! This aging thing is not easy we both have more doctor appointments than we would like but over all we are OK.
My art news is good- I entered some work in a call for entries at ReMarque Print Workshop here in Albuquerque.   The show is titled Unexpected Narratives and will open  in Mid-July. I just completed and artist's book called Life States.  This was the outcome of a three month exploration to the theme of mapping for my Book Arts Study group- I will post pictures of that next post. I also have been working on an altered passport project with my art pals.  I am also participating in the I.C.A.D. ( index card a day) challenge. you do an index card either 3 x 5 or 4 x 6 everyday.  There are daily themes if you want to use thoses there are weekly themes or you just do what you want.  The challenge being doing one everyday for 2 months- June & July so I will have 61 cards at the end of it.  It's a very large group and we share on a private FaceBook group. As of today I have 22 cards as it is the 22nd of June.  I will share five of the cards here. Most have a Gelli printed background. More to come soon.
