Early rising, cleaning up, making waffles for the second (and most positive) male figure in my kid’s lives (25 years ago and now)- a simple honoring on Father's Day.
A query from a couple in Hermosillo, Mexico, Sonora, from William’s website (or maybe Creative Santa Fe?) about lessons in July when they visit SF. His June student, a German artist from PA, was delightful, and a new friendship evolved!
The Overwhelm of April finally resolved when help shows up as Rudolfo and his helper return from just down the road to finish yard stuff started last Sunday. At fini, less dinero, and way more help, than I thought.
A finished large painting, Summer Solstice 12, now propped on two tables in my house studio above multi clay figures and new clays; ideas for more paintings this concept, shape and size.
A fifth wax of “Introspection” finished, to go to foundry end of June.

A positive action to take on a serious health issue, not main-stream but effective, a choice from an artist’s lifetime choices with only major medical coverage at a cost – a habit of alternative alternatives.
A major watering of everything! From the copious and sweet water of the acequia, with which everything grows bigger and faster – may it last into July, and then the monsoons start.
A sharing with my neighbor, of gratitude for our mild spring and timely moisture, of pleasure in all the apples on our conjunctive apple trees, and the pears too, which landed on my side when he bought the piece below and the new survey made part of “our” orchard his.
A sweet dinner with William, sweet and smoky barbecued pork ribs, not cooked by me, to celebrate his being a second father to my children, and a wonderful partner and support to me.
