Yeah, remember when I said I’d be posting again soon? Two months ago? Um.
I also may have said I was high class, but that was just a lie.
I’ve been in a bit of a funk that I keep thinking is going to waft away like the smell when you drive past the water treatment plant, and it hasn’t quite gone away. Maybe I need to be detailed.
I’m especially disgusted with myself this weekend, since I really need to get started on an art project that has an actual deadline. I got juried into the Habitat for Humanity ReStore art show, and I’m planning to work on a piece that I’ve had in my head for at least a year. (Oh by the way, this blog marked its 1-year anniversary last month. Apparently without me.) Some procrastination was actually helpful, as I’d been about to start with the basic piece my collage/assemblage will be made from, and thought I was going to have to use a plan B piece. But a friend turned up with what I wanted all along, which is a window of the size that falls within the guidelines of the show. So yay. But it’s way past time I got started, and there will be some weekends I can’t work on it, so I’ve just painted myself into a corner where I’ll have to be working on it before and/or after work.
And dammit, I don’t know where my box of ephemera has gotten to. How very ephemeral.
And as a side effect of getting Plan A materials, I thought of something really cool to do with the plan B piece, a pallet.
So that’s where I am at the moment. I will keep track of the progress of this piece and eventually show it here. I’ve got a month, so it won’t be terribly long.
Oh! Yeah! I got into the show using photos I snagged from this very blog. Wooooo!
Got a very quick look at your site, will explore more later, but want to let you know that I really enjoyed meeting and chatting with you, hope we can connect again soon. Meanwhile, watch the snow fall.
It was good meeting you, too!
Almost lost your msg, but found it so…. do you ever use standard email yourself? Your blog calls for m0re perusal… Would be interested in getting together sometime – Mineral Point? – for more ‘normal’ discussion.
