Chaukori Blue: Engineering Complete

Leave a comment

Just finished working on the new Where’s Aubrey CD in the studio (hours of engineering). Next step is Mastering, then we will have a complete CD. April Claggett is doing an original painting for the cover (donate to her kickstarter). Can’t wait to see that!

Bluebells, Dogs, and Horses

Leave a comment

Virginia is gorgeous in the Spring. Flowers everywhere you look, even hidden in the grass. And miles and miles of bluebells by the river. There is nowhere I would rather be.

Missed the Opening? No Problem! Tia Maggio Rocks Duvall Gallery

Our plan was to go to the real opening shindig, but we were thwarted by the new equine arrivals! Not to worry. We made our own opening+1.

Tia Maggio works in pastels and does very intricate, delicate work with beautiful lines and lots of movement. The colors are not “easter colors” in case that’s what you’re thinking. Tia’s work can be dark and mysterious or summery and light. Whole spectrum. Great work. We’re proud to have some of Tia’s stuff in our collection at Apothecary Shed.

One of the great things about the Duvall Gallery is that it is an old old building. The patina inside is a striking and effective offset for the work. So glad it is not boring and white.

Of course, an opening+1 requires a nice cocktail. The doctor’s bag was handy.
