Hello BuckHaven, WRITING THIS IN SAMA, THE BRIGHT ESPRESSO AND JUICE BAR ON E. ANDREWS, I’M SURROUNDED BY GOOD ENERGY. People are talking about ideas and sharing inspiring stories about their lives, their goals and their projects. It’s not that I’m eavesdropping. I’m just drawn to others who are full of positive energy, confidence and enthusiasm. I posted up after attending Mindful Mornings Atlanta, an hour-long meeting including a meaningful group meditation in Sama’s meditation studio. The topic of January’s gathering was “Resilience.” The 20 or so mission-driven men and (mostly) women shared thoughts on the topic after a meditation led by Octavia Nasr. We all nodded in agreement that trust and confidence contribute to successful resilience and that volunteering and sharing make successful coping mechanisms. These people are self proclaimed “do-gooders” and, I suspect, all creative and productive in their nine-to-five lives.  This month, we are featuring people who pour their passion into their work, makers who create beautiful work that make life easier and more fun. Enjoy and make something cool this month!

He and his wife, metalsmith, live off Weiuca Road and are both retired with plans to continue to work in the studio and travel in 2018.   Alan’s floor cloths are as small as 2 x 3 ft accent rugs and as mammoth as 12 x 15 ft focal points. He works with clients to create works of art that complement their interiors and finishes the canvas with five coats of varnish that create a sturdy, washable and long-living rug.  “I am now doing minor touch-ups and repairing a small hole in a cloth I made for a woman 22 years ago. They can be vacuumed, spot cleaned with dish detergent or even a heavy chemical spray cleaner and last a really long time, even in heavy traffic areas of the home or office,” said Alan. “It’s important to me to put a lot of detail into each floor cloth.” Yes, they are functional rugs, but also the artist takes pleasure in offering more.  “I add details

I thought showing all of the pieces together would be the best way to convey the scope of the work they saved, and by selling the paintings, along with some of my more recent art, I could make a financial donation to the fire department to show my appreciation.” True to her word, last spring Harper hosted “Out of the Ashes” at Lee Harper Studios in Atlanta. The collection of paintings rescued from the fire and available for purchase included landscapes, figures, still lifes and abstracts, painted with bold, vivid colors in oils and acrylics. The art show also featured a number of Harper’s newer works. She repeated the show in Madison, with proceeds from both gallery sales donated to the Madison Fire Department. Thanks to the quick-thinking firefighters, more than 40 fine arts paintings and photographs were saved from the fire. Some were treated for smoke damage, but none of them were ruined. The same was true of the historic Vason Building on Main Street.
