Siuce the birth of our son life became all the more busy and full. Shortly after my most recent post, in October of 2017, my husband's youngest brother died in a car wreck, and our lives have been a bit topsy turvy ever since, helping the family to grieve and dealing with our own sadness. Meanwhile as a Christmas gift, I asked my husband to make it possible for me to pursue my rock climbing (bouldering) hobby more seriously. I wanted to get back in shape after 3 pregnancies (one miscarried baby in heaven) and 2 full term births. Well things have taken off since then, and both me and my husband are in the best shape of our lives. I also haven't had to promote my art as much these days, but opportunities I planted seeds for years ago have come to fruition.
The best recent example of this: I was surprised that my application to "Vulcan's on Parade," a local public art project with Vulcan Park and Museum here in Birmingham finally found the right audience. I had submitted my application about 2 years prior and in spring of this year was contacted to see if I could produce a painted Vulcan replica (statue provided) asap. By Summer of 2018 it was installed at Magic City Dentistry in downtown Birmingham, who chose my design for their business.
Please enjoy this timelapse. I will probably post faster (and therefore shorter) versions on my other social media profiles.
