The Man Who Couldn’t “Hear” Orange!

Good Day to all of you!

Made a decision to finish this long standing project.  It has been hanging in my studio space for longer than I care to admit.

Have you ever been waylaid by life? I seem to have had a pattern of getting a tremendous artistic roll-ideas-time-energy! Then “something happens”.  It has been mostly matters of health and family in my case that have precluded my forward progress.  Do men do this?

Time to break out of this old story.  We are always in the middle of real life. Some events do stop one cold-for a while.  I was looking at a very large canvas of mine yesterday.  Remembering the circumstances in which I made it.  Very ill at the time-could only stand up for minutes at a time.  BUT! I really wanted to finish it.  And I did.

Found new resolve.  Hope this inspires away some of your excuses, too.  Let me know-we can all use the encouragement.

The Man Who Couldn’t “Hear” Orange was inspired by a story my father told of a man from the neighborhood.  For more detail pix: go to my website :   http://www.hladikvoss.com/prints.html

Go to Portfolio> It is under the Tactile Print list on the left.  Will be posting more as I finish sections.  The “man” model is my husband, Richard.

Feel free to ask me questions!

Coming soon! another project needing the final touches.  “Prom”  a video/installation piece.  I’ve even shown this in performance. ( Many thanks to Mary Ellen Croteau, and to Art on Armitage- Chicago, Illinois!). Need to get the “movie” version on YouTube, and finish editing the live version.  Then get  it on my website.  Yes, there are some pix on the website-under Tactile Prints!

Postcard for the Debut Performance

Another Opening, Another Show!

Show Postcard-Can you guess which image is mine?

Another Opening, Another Show!  ( from “Kiss me Kate-great dancing–with a young Bob Fosse ).  “Always great to be in an art show-group-solo-intimate-prestigious-what have you.  I always get a charge out of exhibiting.  I believe firmly that you never know what the benefits and impact of your work might be.  Sometimes the show does you good-sales! recognition! great snacks!  ( I’ll never forget one show I saw in Chicago-an amazing printmaker who designed the currency for the Czech Republic.  Oldrich Kulhanek. What we all remember was the food!  Incredible amounts and varieties of cured meats and pastry–made me proud to be 1/8th Bohemian!  This seems to be a continuing theme-cooked meats!…).

Sometimes, you may have inspired, amused, connected somehow with a person whom you’ll never meet or know. It’s not always about us.

I won’t be able to attend this opening-I’ve been having some ongoing health annoyances.  Apparently, my presence isn’t necessary. I don’t even wonder anymore. I always get where I am supposed to be.

I was tickled to discover that my image was part of the “postcard”.  I had this email from the gallery for days before I looked at it closely.  A cheerful surprise.

So, get out and do something fun this weekend!  See some art! See people!  Eat charred meats!
