And The Night Lingered On
Work in paint, thread, wool & silk on canvas
So today I'm finally back in the studio after a week that can only be described as exhausting.
Any week in which I don't have the time or the inclination to create art is, at the very least, a sad week. So I'm kicking around finishing up things until Thursday at which time we leave for the lake. Yes, time to head up to Superior for a bit of sun and sand although I've heard their weather has been somewhat like here.....rainy and cool. I don't care as I'm planning on doing a lot of sketching as well as working on my artist statement and trying to seriously come up with a good marketing plan. I don't think I've been putting everything I've got into what I'm doing and I'm aware that a change is coming. Being north will be a great time to sort things out and find the clarity I'm so sorely lacking these days.
On Saturday I visited the library and took out the bio of Jackson Pollock. It will be one I'll savour while I'm away. I saw the movie with Ed Harris a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it enough to want to find out more about his life and his art. Right after that I read Tracy Helgeson's blog about her much anticipated trip to the Pollock/Krasner house/studio in the Hamptons. She's due to blog about it today so I can't wait to check in.
