Three weeks in 21st century America is an immensity of time

We went from festering blind consumerism, to quiet personal introspection

Just like that

Stadiums and churches and shopping malls are empty

and parks are at capacity

I haven't posted because prior to this I've been busy, buying from and selling to the faceless hoards, laboring away so someone else can turn a profit

all the while silently doing my own bidding, in my spare time, for my own need

Here it is, the fruit of my labor

I know I tease as you read

but this is what it is for me


moments of clarity and reality


and setbacks

But then the last three weeks I've had the chance to really work

and to spend time with those two people I cherish

to create

I have never put so many parts into a finished product

so many surfaces

so much joinery

so many decisions



it's been a truly enlightening ride

a chance to grow as an artist


and husband

and here it is, no glamour shots
no lovely blank backdrops and proper lighting, or new comforter (I know it clashes horribly but shopping right now is a bit complicated)

but it ain't done yet

there's a whole inner structure to create

a skeletal framework, a dresser without sides

six drawers and their lattice of runners and supports

stay tuned, I'm designing as I go

disclaimer: the work you see is from the last five months, the writing refers to the time frame mentioned, sorry for the incongruity but I couldn't stop the story
