When I started writing this blog my intention was to write once a week and post on Monday. Now, I have to confess that I have not done so well with that, and any of you who read me already know this. While I enjoy writing very much, when I am really consumed with art making the writing takes a back seat, and my writing pen has been languishing there since the second of February. Oops. Can’t keep to a schedule? Sometimes, I can’t. It’s not possible to do it all, all the time.
Since February’s posting I have hung a new exhibit of my work in the office of the Dayton mayor, participated in an evening of art in Centerville, hosted an art party, submitted several proposals, completed one very large tapestry collage and several other collages, tweaked my new studio, given a workshop, delighted in the newly revised Montgomery County Business of Art website (more about that in a later post), and begun the planning of an art trip to Belgium and the Netherlands, all this while continuing my usual teaching and studio work schedule. Odd, all of a sudden I am feeling slightly breathless….!
It’s been a satisfying and productive last two months. I have made new art and met new friends. I have been lucky to spend time with old friends. Life has been good.
I am planning now for the summer and fall, and scheduling work on several series of collages, in addition to working on some other new non-collage possibilities. I have lots of ideas; more ideas than hours in the day!
I also don’t like to write posts that are too long, so I am going to close now with some pictures. Keep it creative!
