Oh, Louise!

Hey K,

Happy holiday weekend... hope it was a good one. I spent the weekend doing house things with the Hubs and Brother, M.d.... fixed some electrical things, hung up a pendant light in the dining room and cleaned the house for a Memorial Day BBQ with friends. Equal parts sun and fun.

Not so fun news this morning regarding the death of one of my favorite artists, Louise Bourgeois. A longtime favorite, her constant wondering and wandering has always inspired me. I love her sense of exploration of self, ability to experiment with materials from bronze to graphite and layered textiles.

She will be missed in my memories of feisty, powerful, female sculptors.
