[starting a new piece yesterday in the studio : sometimes it helps me to see where a piece begins]


First, I just want to thank you for the wonderful comments you've been sharing here, I love it! Each one makes me smile and I think, "wow, these are great people!"

Do you ever have so much going on or so many ideas in your head that you can't get them out fast enough? And maybe when they do come out they're jumbled?

I love having ideas, because let's face it, when they're not there, it feels really frustrating. Right now I'm working on how to process and execute these ideas and for some reason revisiting my AUGUST POLAROID PROJECT is helping me think.
I have new & ongoing projects running concurrently, balancing new work for the shop and galleries. Sometimes it seems like alot. And right now I'm happy to be busy, I'm not complaining. Every time I walk into my studio I think to myself "God, thank you for this place that I can come to and make things."

Thank you for letting me share my run-on process thinking here this morning. Is there anything you'd like to process/vent/figure out today?


ps. oh, sunprint paintings from yesterday's image are going in the shop.

Good Friday morning to you,

Did this week fly by or what?

Lately I've been thinking about this project I did last August, in which I took a polaroid every day during that month and wrote down stories and ideas accumulated in that day. It centered around the idea of HOME and then I put them together in a kind of book. This is one of the pages.

My Dad recently sent me some old cameras that belong to my grandfather, who took a ton of pictures. I remember when I was a child he always had a camera tucked into his shirt pocket. So I'm thinking or brainstorming ways to use them in a new project. Hmmmmm... any thoughts?

Susan's shop is open and I have my eye on this cat bank, it's pretty sweet.

Today is the three month-a-versary [I know, that's not a word] of my shop. A small milestone, but I like it. I've been getting some new sunprint paintings together to add next week and I think on Monday I'll add another pinhole piece, No. 5.

And lastly I'd like to introduce you to a brand new blog, of a former preschool student I had the pleasure of working with. Meet E and her Art Collection. I've already added her to my bloglines.

I hope you have a lovely weekend,
