. . .just slouched around

yesterday, did not even go to the basement/studio until late last night. I'm running out of art to show on this blog, and I am scraping the bottom of the barrel with this scan. It's another little experimental piece but it is on cardstock paper instead of foamcore. Maybe I can use this in future collages. I should have been hell bent to make new art after my exciting trip to the Crossroad area.

I guess I spent most of yesterday morning on the telephone chatting with friends and relatives. I was thrilled to hear that I managed to save my mother-in-law over $17,000 in income taxes by asking her tax preparer one question. To me, it means that I haven't lost my chops. . . I still know something about the work I used to do in my previous life.

The weather forecasters around here are predicting snow, maybe a lot of it, starting tonight and continuing through tomorrow. There are blizzard warning for places a couple of hours away from where I live. Usually when the weather folks get this excited, it all comes to nothing. We'll see. I think the stuff in the garden will be okay, because it's not supposed to get all that cold. I just wish it would freeze only the hedge trees, so that in the summer and fall I would not have to go around the yard picking up those nasty hedge balls.

Boring, boring, boring. . . I'm done for today.

Give your self a day off, perhaps. An Artist date?

I know that "what will I post" feeling. I'm surprised you manage to put something new up every day.

I'm in a dry spell again and posting about other things that tweak my fancy. In the end it is all art related if you believe you paint who you are. That is such an all encompassing idea and I like it. It gives me permission to take lots of side trips in my art practice.

Hi, Leslie: Yes, a day off. It felt good.

Margaret: I agree, "it is all art-related." Even when I'm not making art, I'm thinking about it, or noticing things that may someday become part of my art. Your latest post had just amazing photos, lots of inspiration there.
