I am actually enjoying getting back to some more reasonable routine. I washed floors, I cleaned one bathroom, I cooked a very yummy caulifower soup (yes, truly) and served it with my favorite zuchini-parmesan bread....
But my new drawing-project is really my source of energy! It's great not to have the after the show what-do-I-do-now-thing...
This is day 2. Lots of interesting stuff in the paper again. The New York Times once more. I am trying to think of ways to narrow down the project so that I won't get lost and so that its a bit more of a challenge.
One way of doing this might be to select only two articles and somehow relate them. Two articles immediately fell together this morning.
front page: 'Leg lost, Dancer...' and in Science Times:
'studying sea life for a glue that mends people'. The images that accompanied both were inspiring as well.
I asked myself whether my drawings were just illustrations of what I read in some condenced way or what exactly am I trying to do? I am not sure... I am exploring what happens visually when I put these thoughts together but I don't want to illustrate them, I think I am trying to bounce them off eachother and see where that leads. Does that make sense? Of course I have been working on small watercolors as well and they are taking things even further.
Ok. this is short and sweet because I have to go, I have a child waiting to be tacked into bed. Thank you for your enthusiastic responses to this new phase of work. It means so so so much to me!
