The Red Fox

needle-felted sculpture by Antony Galbraith

The Red Fox represents adaptability, shrewdness, attention to detail, invisibility, fleet-footedness and quick-thinking and action.

If Fox appears to you it may signal it is time to move like the wind: quick, silent and unnoticed. It could be time to observe a situation silently, paying more attention to actions rather than words.

Your natural talents of shrewdness, attention to detail and ability to think quickly will heighten at this time. Employing these skills will allow you to know whether it is best to sit in the shadows or disappear in a flash with your quick movements.

Red Fox Totem Sculpture

I'll be revealing my latest sculpture work at the annual Madison County Historical Society Craft Days on September 8th (10am-5pm) and September 9th (10am-4pm). Admission is $4 for adults, children 12 and under are free.  Purchase a weekend pass for $6 and attend both days! You will find my work set up in booth #310 (near Gate 3 entrance).

In addition to my needle-felted sculptures there will be craft and art vendors from New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.  This is a demonstration show, so many of the crafters, myself included, will be demonstrating and creating work right before your eyes!

Musical entertainment is provided from 1pm-3pm by Scots-Irish fiddlers The Thistle and the Rose on Saturday and folk duo Double Chase on Sunday.

Food and children's activities are also available. For more information on the even please visit the Madison County Historical Society website

It's a great opportunity to get an early start on holiday gift shopping and support independent and local artisans!  I hope to see you this weekend!

The Late Summer Sun

The sun has shifted. Its light has taken on a honeyed glow.  Shadows are longer. Colors are more saturated and contrasts are more pronounced. 

I enjoy this time of year. The heat is less intense, the nights are cool. There is a lull in activity, as though resting before the grand preparation of the business of autumn.

The last few years I did not allow myself the time to sit and enjoy the passing of the seasons like I used to.  It is easy to be swept away by the busyness and distraction that permeates our society. 

There is wisdom and healing to be gained by stopping and just being for a moment.  The mad dash forward is depleting when it is not balanced with a pause and even an occasional regression.  There is much to learn when sitting quietly on my porch amongst the herbs and watching the squirrels chase each other and listen to the blue jays scold.  When the wind tosses the branches of the trees in the park across the street I am certain, if I sit quietly long enough, I will gain some wisdom that would have eluded me had I rushed on like usual.
