Jeff Hyland, was commissioned by the City of Portsmouth’s Cultural Commission to develop a piece of public art. His "The Spirit of Janus" is one of six pieces of temporary art that has been installed around the City. His piece can be seen at the corner of International Drive and Exeter Road at the Pease Tradeport.
Join all the artists involved with this Art-Speak project on Thursday, June 24, from 6-8 at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel to celebrate the official launching of Overnight Art 2010 and help support public art in our communities. Hope to see you there!
Inspiration comes from so many places... and these past two weeks have really just been so full of family and friends that the words for it are hard to find. Events like witnessing unions I never thought I would see, hearing from old friends who are putting together a long overdue gathering, going to a fabulously touching art opening at the Norman Rockwell Museum (for Jeanne Steig and William Steig), meeting the mother of my daughter's boyfriend for the first time, and then, for the hundreth umpteenth millionth time (really...how many times is that?!), having a laugh with a neighbor. When my world feels right, my purpose feels right. And color is very good.

Wow... It has been a while! We just got back from a family member's beautiful wedding in Greensboro NC. Weddings are so crazy and wonderful... happiness, excitement, new faces, and conversation. Congratulations to John and Shandra!
