I began my rainy PACNW Sunday morning
with TED talks and coffee in bed.
Once my brain was super-charged with
knowledge and ambition...
I made my people pancakes.
I spent time in the studio.
with pigment, oil paint, encaustic wax...
and my deserted
I brought my work-in-process out into the natural light...
even though it will
live in that space.
This allowed me to walk around the piece,
walk up to the piece,
view it from a distance...
and from an angle.
Carving with this much detail is a new thing for me.
I think I'll do a figurative composition next.
A self portrait maybe.
I have plans and big ideas.
I experimented all day,
roasted brussel sprouts
edited wedding photos
cleaned the refrigerator
and the dishes.
It was glorious.
She... is one of my favorites...
