It seems appropriate that this palette would start to give out tonight before I get ready to hang my show in Bennington. It's worked hard, helping produce over thirty pieces - some of which have gone to new homes.Tonight starts a new one, and i'm feeling ready for a change of subject or style. There'll be at least one more visit back to my favorite spot, but I look at winter as a time for seeds and skills to be nurtured under blankets of snow and soil. It's time to start growing the next season.
