Blogging makes sense. Again.

On January 3, 2018, I posted what I didn’t know would be the last of my blog entries for over a year and a half. At the time, I had no idea that the blogisphere and I were breaking up. A month passed. Then two. Then four. Then it felt silly to start back up again when everyone else seems to have a YouTube channel.

Truthfully, I got busy writing other things, and taking photos, and working with clients, and along the edges of all that, I was honing in on a creative project that would become a slightly unhealthy preoccupation.

Now I’m the inaugural Artist-in-Residence at the Arlington Museum of Art in Arlington, TX, and my preoccupation has become a professional obsession. In about five weeks, the wonderful folks at the AMA and I will begin installing MUMENTOUS: The Upsizing of a Texas Tradition. It’s my first major solo exhibition ever.

Don't blink, I tell myself every day.

From now through Dec. 31 -- which is the final day of my Residency with the AMA -- I'm going to use my Facebook page as my notepad, a device for capturing and sharing what being an Artist-in-Residence is all about, along with sharing images of my art, the exhibition, art that inspires, and other stuff I hope you'll enjoy.

The “best of” will end up here, in my blog. There might even be some video this time around. Because when something feels momentous to you, you don't want to miss a moment.
