First week back to work..and the first artwork produced in my new studio...all with my friend "Leo" by my side. It was really wierd to sit down and stare at a blank canvas...the first time in over 5 months.
Well, after totally blowing it the first day, I finally found some ryhthm and got back to work. The first day resulted in a diversion when I recieved a call from friend who brought me a coffee...which led into lunch and a lot of procrastination, but I soon got back to business. After all, The "West End Festival" is in a few weeks and I am also participating in Greenville's "Open Studio's" this November. Nothing like a little pressure.
I also took some time to paint some stripes on the doors. I have always loved stipes in a room and since I had to have hollow core doors, I thought it would make their ugliness go away.
unpacked all of my reference books and arranged them by color...yes, I am a little "OCD"... but aren't they beautiful!!
This weekend J and I spent some time designing a light fixture for the kitchen that will incorporate some old industrial swing arm lamps. I don't have any photos because we had to stop... there was a problem with the electrical boxes....but hopefully by next weekend we will have them completed.
Feels good to be back at work but I can't wait to put all the remodeling behind me and only have the art to focus on. One day soon...I hope.
