birds of spring

Oh sure, the house is in chaos and I'm trying hard to incubate a new human properly, but there's actually one other goal I'm working towards: an art show.

As of May 8th, my work will be up at Le Gallery here in Toronto.  I'm excited and terrified all at the same time.  It's been years since I exhibited my "other" work, and there is a revealing nature to this collection that I have to be ready for.  Most of the text-based work is getting framed right now, but I have an installation piece to finish up, which means spending time each night hand sewing multiple linen birds.  Luckily, it suits my energy level these days and the growing flock is a comforting sight...even if what they spell out makes me blush.

Thank goodness Sadie doesn't read yet.
