“That nothing is static or fixed, that all is fleeting and impermanent, is the first mark of existence. Everything is in process.” (Pema Chodron) From The Painter’s Keys

That’s what I wrote on my blackboard that I just gave new life to in my cellar studio – project continues. I’m set up enough to do some work but still have so much to do that I have little time for art yet. I’ve done a little stitching on one of the ink paintings I did but not much. And there’s deepened meaning to the slow stitching I’ve been adding to some small pieces. Tonight I put a quick and dirty coat of whitewash on an old chest that’s drying now just to clean it up for it’s new home. I go upstairs to collect things I want to bring downstairs and find things I forgot I had, but then when I look for something I had or saw recently, I can’t find what I did with it.  Ah, but it’s all part of the process (grrrrinning)! Looking forward to seeing the women in our critique group tomorrow – I need to get out of the house!

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

    1. I’ve taken to putting one for on the stair and stopping to thin about what I may be forgetting, then, even if I can’t think of anything I stop and grab something I know will need to go up or down, so I never go without something in hand. At this point, though, the biggest problem is “Where did I out it this time?! “
