hoping something good
this is the piece i finished a couple of weeks ago. i've been doing a lot of framing/finishing work over the past couple of days and now this one is ready to go. i'm very pleased with the way it turned out.
i'm really feeling the saying on this one. i did another version of it many many months ago (here), inspired by my friends francisco and monica, of mogollon. i had the great fortune of being able to work with them in helping to run their amazing little powerhouse of a design (and so much more) company. those months were super inspirational to me and i love that the three of us have remained close and continue to motivate and inspire one another. beyond creativity, we often get to talk about the business aspect of running a small company and how frustrating but also thrilling it can be. this sentiment, "something is about to happen" powers us through the slow weeks/months.... the determination that with ever harder work and persistence, that we'll one day, soon maybe (hopefully), be able to come to a point where it's not so difficult and that the stars align in just the right way that we get to carry out the brilliant vision we have in a way that's less of a struggle. that's the hope, anyway....
