When I woke up yesterday morning [day after election day] my mind was swirling with thoughts. I had so many thoughts of hope, and excitement, and looking forward and things I wanted to share but hadn't the time. And then I taught all day long and when I finally got home last night all I wanted to do was eat soup and watch tv. I was just too tired. And today is my studio day, I always wake up giddy on my studio days. And recent events only add to that for me.
On Tuesday when I walked downtown to the post office [and picked up my free Starbucks along the way for voting] my copy of PEER was waiting for me! Renee did a wonderful job putting it all together. I really like the size and thickness of the paper. It is so interesting to see fellow artists work and hold it in my hands. I am looking forward to adding color to their beautiful images. It seemed like just the right day for it to arrive.
Speaking of coloring, I don't know when I've ever concentrated so hard on coloring in a bubble or within the lines as on Tuesday. I looked and looked at my choices and made sure I filled in the bubbles on the ballot as best I could.
Yes. It is finished. We're ready to move on and forward. Right?
Tomorrow I hope to share some studio news about art card subscriptions and letterpress with you.
off to work for me!
