Well, thanks to that amazing trip to Big Sur, my brain is back to it's old habits. I'm (nearly constantly) thinking about ART.
Here's a recent example: while drinking a latte on the way to SF for the Bazaar Bizarre- I thought how smart it is that my KeepCup is made of recycled materials... and is thus black, to hide any color impurities. Then I realized that's way better than white cups, which inevitably get stained by tea and coffee. Then I thought about my former art teacher, Nancy Bossert, who loved tea-staining paper. Then I thought I can use that empty litter box to stain some nice sheets of Rives BFK paper. Then I thought about the imprimatura that I have to have ready for my workshop with Warren Chang. Did I lose you yet? This all happened in the space of a minute or two.
You might be thinking, "She has ADD." But have no fear, my brain is just finally back to normal after a hiatus of what... 8 years? EEK. It's good to be back.
I'm going to life drawing sessions (no teacher, just a model) about once a week- 3hr sessions.
I started felting and I'm completely obsessed with it already.
I attended Warren Chang's portrait demo and now (thanks to Hubs!) I'm signed up to take his 3-day workshop in January. Now to buy all the supplies....
