One of the great things about living with an artist is that you get to watch ideas journey from a-borning to fully alive. That also means getting to watch the struggles, the anxieties, the process, and finally, the realized piece.
That piece up there – Here Today – is by Judy Rushin.1Full disclosure…she is married to someone who wears my clothes every day. Early ideation began about 7 months, followed by a lengthy design phase, with most of the heavy duty labor completed this summer. It has been a blast to watch it unfold. You can see some in-progress photos here.
The photo at the top was taken a few days ago at the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, FL, where it is set to premiere to the public tonight. This piece, along with another by Judy, is part of a group show of The Florida State University painting and drawing faculty. It is open from August 14 to October 25. Do yourself a favor and go see it. As good as it looks here, photos don’t come close to doing full justice.
