Saint Andrews Sewanee

Wow, what a day. I just got back from the Saint Andrews Sewanee gallery after installing my first solo show. Feels mighty nice, I gotta say. Taking the work out of my living room studio with yellow walls, brown trim, and bad, bad lighting to fresh white walls with track lighting.... yup, it felt real special. And to top the day off in true americana style my lady and I ate at the Monteagle Diner on our way back home. This place is a distillation of everything that I have been so fascinated by this year. It is in an old gas station that has kept everything but the pumps. The old rusted sign, the awning, and the sweet locals (that happened to be meeting for gospel night) made this a place worth hanging on to. I want to thank both Wyoming residencies I was at last fall and also CreateHere in Chattanooga for making this possible. And, here's to the last time I borrow someone else's tools to make my frames....!
