What's Up?

work in progress


Between various house and garden repair projects I have not been keeping up with posts.  However, I have been slowly embroidering on the piece above, from a hand dye.  It is the slow work that I love to do.
Perfect for the hot days of summer.

It has also been website updating time.  I invite you to take a look at the galleries on my site: www.lindaamiller.com.

Reporting on a few exhibits of note at the Getty Center.  "Happy Birthday, Mr. Hockney" includes a number of David Hockney's enigmatic self-portraits through the years, and also a series of his inventive photographs.  He is one of my favorite artists.  Show runs through November 26th.  Also on is "The Birth of Pastel" through 12/17/17.  Spent a lovely day up there this week.  Always an uplifting time, and it was not too hot either!

And finally, here is an inspirational book I have been reading:  "From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older" by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Ronald Miller.  This is a wonderful practical view to approaching elderhood with fresh open mind... 




Before I close, let me leave you with this from Lee Worley’s Four Foundations for Creative Process (in her book Coming from Nothing):

  • Willingness to open
  • Trusting in your experience
  • Willingness to take a chance
  • Not making anything of it

I will be taking more time offline this summer, so posting will be light until fall.  Have a great summer!

  1. I am also lightening up on the electronic side of things but I always love checking out your posts. I will check out that book on aging......not really thrilled that the big 70 is just about 6 months away. :)
