I feel a bit of excitement. Another student signed up for a class I’m teaching next week. I was working in the studio this morning experimenting with burning fabric with a wood burning tool. Not exactly what I expected but different things emerged that I liked especially the color of the burned muslin.
I’m now reading Ernest Hemingway’s A Moveable Feast recommended by Natalie Goldberg in her book Writing Down the Bones. I love reading or hearing about an artist’s process and both of these books are very engaging. You have my high recommendation. I picked up both these books at the library. If there’s any way I don’t have to accumulate more stuff it’s a good thing.
Mapping the Intelligence of Artist Work: An Explorative Guide to Making, Thinking and Writing arrived today. I ordered it after seeing Kathy deRosas‘ copy. We’re in a crit group put on by Lisa Kokin and I find the relationship building and personal growth invaluable.
