Good Day to all of you!

Made a decision to finish this long standing project.  It has been hanging in my studio space for longer than I care to admit.

Have you ever been waylaid by life? I seem to have had a pattern of getting a tremendous artistic roll-ideas-time-energy! Then “something happens”.  It has been mostly matters of health and family in my case that have precluded my forward progress.  Do men do this?

Time to break out of this old story.  We are always in the middle of real life. Some events do stop one cold-for a while.  I was looking at a very large canvas of mine yesterday.  Remembering the circumstances in which I made it.  Very ill at the time-could only stand up for minutes at a time.  BUT! I really wanted to finish it.  And I did.

Found new resolve.  Hope this inspires away some of your excuses, too.  Let me know-we can all use the encouragement.

The Man Who Couldn’t “Hear” Orange was inspired by a story my father told of a man from the neighborhood.  For more detail pix: go to my website :   http://www.hladikvoss.com/prints.html

Go to Portfolio> It is under the Tactile Print list on the left.  Will be posting more as I finish sections.  The “man” model is my husband, Richard.

Feel free to ask me questions!


This is the main image from Panel #4—

Coming soon! another project needing the final touches.  “Prom”  a video/installation piece.  I’ve even shown this in performance. ( Many thanks to Mary Ellen Croteau, and to Art on Armitage- Chicago, Illinois!). Need to get the “movie” version on YouTube, and finish editing the live version.  Then get  it on my website.  Yes, there are some pix on the website-under Tactile Prints!

This is fabulous Judith

Thanks, Rosie! I’m inspired today-I get to touch the artwork! Will involve quilting up some of the mostly finished panels–which I do watching old movies. Sounds relaxing to me today.


sounds great – I’m stuck behind a computer all day 😦 necessary admin stuff.

Interesting and compelling work, Judith. Life surely does get in the way of staying focussed on art. The male artists I know tend not to get as distracted by family and domestic stuff. Stereotypical I know. We like to know everyone is ok before we get back to our art. But on the other hand, I think we are able to stop and start with more ease. Thanks for your posting and sharing your art. Let us know how you are doing.

I am not working a 9-5 right now so enjoying so much having the time to work on projects. Soon I will probably get back to a day job. I know I should use the time to market more than make but it’s not turning out that way. Good luck and productivity to all!

Thanks, Victoria,

I know what you mean about marketing. I do this in the a.m. I like to have my work day as uninterrupted as possible.
Starting the “finishing process” today. Set up a long table to assess the last steps of these panels. Feeling good!

Love your work!

Great to get feedback. Had a great weekend working on panel #1. Had no idea I was so close to finishing – I love the part where the creative battle is won! Now-need to throw time at it- and tweak my original thoughts.
