Great news which includes a visit to Montreal

I'm sitting in Sabine's kitchen...
My ears are serenaded by Vincent Delerm and my eyes are following a naughty and free squirrel whose purpose, it seems, is to carefully jump from one branch to another of grape and kiwi vines which hold Sabine's porch in a bold embrace.

I'm in Montreal, visiting and enjoying the much welcome imminence of Spring.
Yesterday, in the city of Montreal, I saw a gallery of Inuit Art the doors of which had already been closed by the late hour but the promise of tomorrow was born by the wings of a beautiful owl staring right at me. Most of the bird was comprised of whale bones including her body - a very large whale vertebra. Today, if it doesn't rain too badly, I will head out to the gallery in hope of meeting the sculpture in person and looking for more.

This vacation feels like a nice reward for a very busy few months. 2011 has brought much vivacity into my mostly quiet studio routine.
  • Several of the LilianaBead Collections are available for sale at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston in conjunction with the Chihuly Exhibit. It's been about a month and I've already filled 3 large orders! My hands are begging me to take a break while my spirit is thriving. I enjoy the fact that customers enjoy the work I make and choose to adorn their body with it!

  • Water is a part of the 10x10x10 Small Works Show at Pittsburgh Glass Center. Consider going by the center as it is a wonderful oasis for anyone who loves glass or is contemplating whether to fall for it perpetually.

  • Pennaceous will travel for the next 12 months as part of the ISGB Convergence III Exhibit.
What now?
Well, I'll enjoy the rest of my stay in Montreal. My host and dear friend not only has a beautiful home and a happening porch, but she's also got a brilliant mind and a loving heart. Thank you, Sabine...
