Poster Art, and Snow King
I've just received this from Oregon, from the artist Michael Orwick, who was commissioned by the Oregon Children's Theater to do the art (publicity, programs, posters) for the play "Gossamer." I'll be in Portland in mid-March (you can see my schedule on the website under "upcoming schedule") and though the play will not be produced until fall, there will be a public reading of it on March 10th.
I am just back from Maine after a busy and productive week there. Here is a picture taken through the window of my studio, showing how high the snow is; Alfie was feeling like King of the Hill. The lovely hanging glass ball was a gift from my friend Richard Greene, retired fourth grade teacher from Illinois who now lives in Florida. He and I have been corresponding for probably 20 years.
I worked on my taxes in Maine, and wrote an article and a speech that I had promised to people; and fiddled with a book manuscript...but it wasn't till the drive home that I hit on the plot device that I think will make it work. Lightbulb over the head! Now I can't wait to get back to it and forge ahead.
