Maddy, I'm so sorry to hear that awful news. Makes me wish I still believed in angels and good faeries, so that I could pray that one would come through with a place for you to live and money to come to Seattle. Maybe I'll try it anyway--nothing to lose, right?
Project Willow, I can't believe you only have 3 pieces so far--! Maybe everyone's just a bit late...? I'm hoping to be able to come up at least a day or 2 early--if the printer gets some of my prints on canvas finished by then (a rather large "if" unfortunately), would you want me to bring them along to add to the show? (They'd be the companion pieces to the original I sent to you and the exact same size, but I'm not sure which ones or that he'll get them done by then) Let me know and I'll get after the printer.
[Edited to add: psynapz, thanks for that link! It would be wonderful if "Kim" could be contacted and would send some artwork for the show. So much of what she said resonated with me and we look as if we climbed out of the same gene pool, too
It's fascinating that she has other alters who paint (and one named "Patricia"!) since the one in our system who paints was our "front" alter until 1995 and she identifies herself with our name and considers me a "usurper" (her word, transmitted via non-dominant-hand writing). Every time that someone asks me
about the paintings that she
does, I feel uncomfortable, since she's
the person who created them, not me. I occasionally have an idea for one, but unless she's inspired by it, nothing happens. (I, on the other hand, am the one who sculpts the dolls)]
