Its been awhile. My website has decided that I am only allowed to send so many emails now, or I have to pay extra.......Seems like we are being squeezed every which way these days. So I am limiting my blogs to once a month until I can figure out another way. So hello there strangers!
Winter is here in the hills. A time of change. The season but also life changes. I have moved out of the Bullock Hotel in Deadwood. Why? Many reasons.The main reason is that it just wasn't where I was supposed to be. I thought I was, for obvious reasons. Lots of people. Deadwood is a destination. Casinos, bars, events. I was doing ok for awhile. Even though my spirit was slowly sinking. In the end the noise, party atmosphere, and not a lot of foot traffic in the hotel made me question my reasons for being there. Not saying that those things are not great, just not for me. What was that saying by John Lennon? Life is what happens while your making plans........
So now what? My life has always had lots of ups and downs. I guess that's the life of an artist. My plan is to move my studio to a little mountain town about 20 miles away called Rochford. It reminds me a lot of Cheyenne Crossing when I first set up there. My beautiful friend Amanda manages Moonshine Gulch and invited me to take over the old Rochford museum next to the Moonshine. Its been one of my favorite places in the hills for years. On Sundays they have a pickers circle where local and visiting musicians come play. And did I mention the food is fantastic!
If you look all the way to the right you will see a little building. That's where Ill be. Andy and I will be remodeling all winter. It will be my studio and gallery on one side and a wine bar on the other. Needless to say we are excited about the possibilities. Just head down Rochford road and you'll see it. If you have never been your in for a treat.
We plan on being open May til October and then for special occasions in winter. I would like to chronicle the remodel on social media as well. Its rough right now, but those of you who know me know that I love old rusty beat up things. I also enjoy a challenge. If you do social media please follow me on Facebook, Instagram or TicTok under Ginny Wolf Studio.
In the mean time you can find my work locally at Saloon # 10 mercantile in Deadwood, and in December at Jewel of the West in Hill City. I will also be doing a trunk show at Jewel of the West on December 1 & 2. Ill post more about that later.
I am also posting lots of work on my website shop. My creative flow is starting to come back so I'm excited about some of the pieces I'm making as well as some I have planned. It would be a huge help if you can do some shopping with me between now and Spring. Just go to my website shop at www.ginnywolfstudio.com. Support local artists. Its important!
Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there's a big disappointment, we don't know if that's the end of the story. It may just be the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don't know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don't know. ~ Pema Chodren
So now for some music. One of my favorite parts about these blogs is sharing music I find, Music is such a treasure to me. Its everything really. If I didn't have music I couldn't create. That was one of the many lessons I learned this past year. I know its not like this for everyone, but it sure is for me. So without further ado......
We Lost David Lindley this year. He was one of my all time favorites for years. I was blessed to see him play many times. They called him the King of Polyester. He loved to wear the most amazingly disgusting polyester clothes! One of his endearing qualities. He was and is the most amazing musicians of all times and will be missed.
Well , I think thats it for now. I wish you all the best my loves. Have a glorious day.
