We are in the mysterious process of getting ready for our next Beerhorst family Art Show. We almost always feel unprepared nomatter how hard we work at getting ready. It is a feeling we have just learned to live with over the years. Like so many strong feelings it trys to betray us.
I am really excited about this open house because there has been a strong outpouring of new ideas around here lately. What often seems to happen in the process of pulling out art made in the past along with finnishing up new projects, is that new connections are made. New ideas and possibilities present themselves as the house and studio are cleaned up and rearanged. It is a little like opening the wood stove and poking around the coals and chunks of wood till they burst into flames again. With the new inspirations, the trick then becomes in taking care of the details that need to be done to get ready for the show while at the same time following some of those new creative trails.
It is always our hope and prayer that people will come to our open house with the courage to invest their hard earned money in art work that they will take into their lives. And the art will some how help them to live with more potency and exhuberance. We really believe God inhabits the art and crafts we make because we have asked him to.
