hello again, studio

I’ve never been one of those people who work x-number of hours in the studio every day. I’d like to be but I’m not. With envy I imagine those regular-studio-hours people as having impeccable exercise regimes, and eating healthy meals at the same time each day. Laundry-is-done-on-Saturday type of people.

Not me. I’m more prone to activity binges. All studio for several weeks, followed by 2 days of website updating, followed by a stretch of solid gardening is more my style; it balances out over time.

I’ve been in a phase of house projects, house guests, a trip up to Canada for a family reunion… so it feels like ages since I’ve had concentrated time in the studio.

Before leaving for Canada I reorganized the studio, moved furniture around, tidied up. Now I’m excited to get in there and to make some new pieces. I have a little pile of envelope backs with doodles of earrings and pendants and I need to make them to find out if the designs work.

I’ll let you know.

    Good reminder that I am choosing how my life and time are spent.

    I am trying to be that kind of person (a regular kind) but I tend to be much more sporadic. It seems to work, mostly. I look forward to seeing your new designs!

    I miss making paintings. Making paintings requires that I slowly plow through the loneliness to the delicious quiet I need to work.

    It is good to hear your process. I hope it is going well.
