Yesterday, the (literal) bulk of the massive research project was finished, delivered and discussed. There’s more that needs to happen, but it can now become part-time and I can resume my life. Saturday, I took a day off, but just couldn’t consign it to the basement studio. The weather was just too great, balmy, the skies a perfect, luscious blue, beckoning. I did a cursory spring clean-up of the gardens instead. Today, back to the studio and back to (S)Edition, another sort of clearing out of old business.
I have had no luck with the two new residencies I applied for. I’m fine with that; I want and need to learn a great deal more about making my home and home studios work for me, about ingraining my artwork into my daily life on an ongoing basis after years and years of concentrating the lion’s share of my work into intensive residency bursts. The bronze beater definitely adds to all the changes. I’m re-learning where and how everything fits together, and this will likely go on for a long while yet. I’m fine with that as well, but I am highly uncertain about where the blahg might fit in anymore. Do you want to know that all the tritoma seeds have sprouted? I’m quite happy about that, but would I want to read about it on someone else’s blog? I’m honestly not sure. And that’s all I’ve got for you today.
