As I’m writing this, it is 10:57 p.m. on Wednesday night, and my phone is telling me that it is snowing. Snow before Halloween was the tradition of my childhood in the foothills of Colorado but relatively unheard of here in the wilds of New York. As an unrepentant summer-hating snow-lover, I am super psyched.
My neighbors are probably sleeping, which is a good thing since I’m standing outside taking pictures with the flash on at 11:00 at night.
Winter is a time of new beginnings. Mother Nature rolls over in her sleep and a new year dawns, bringing spring and all sorts of opportunities for change and rebirth. Since we’re right in the midst of preparations for the holidays and all of the craziness that brings, I’m feeling like maybe it’s time to start something new.
As you’ve probably noticed, I post on Thursdays sporadically at best. Some weeks I’m too busy show-prepping, but other weeks I am in obsessive research mode and don’t have anything to say (this week’s obsessive research subjects: Deco Books and Aqua Markers). Like today, if you look at my table, there is a pile of gelli prints that I have no plans for, used paper towels that I should probably get rid of, and a BIG pile of my daughter’s art supplies. She has her own table, but she’s taken mine this week. None of this is interesting enough to spawn a blog post.
I will think this through and figure something out, whether it’s posting regular demo videos, tutorials, or stuffy patterns. Maybe I’ll give in and let my feminine side start art journaling. If you have any requests, suggestions, or outright demands, feel free to comment, and I’ll entertain any reasonable suggestion (like I can’t come to your house and do the Harlem Shake while washing a platypus, but I might be conned into doing a series of bears dressed like Elder Gods)! Otherwise, I’ll try to have something more interesting next week.
