drawing a day ~ week 41 Originally uploaded by dressform.
a day late... oops. after teaching yesterday i went to a lovely dinner for a former professor for her birthday. we dined at a large table while a diebenkorn painting watched over us. as i sat eating the most amazing food [bread pudding w/ black currents for dessert!] i couldn't help but love that fact that in this world [at that table] words and thoughts were currency worth more than gold. everything can be viewed through an academic lens... i was surrounded by artists [a half japanese dancer!], historians, authors [books on hell and courtesans and feminist scientific philosophies]. although personally i can't bolster that type of thought and conversation for days on end [the intensity!]- for one lovely evening it felt enchanting.
i was also enchated by a visit with my family this weekend. more intense thoughts and conversations there.... i will speak more on this another day as i think i am still processing.
so above are the drawings for last week. they seem very sparce. i mean i know all my drawings have a tendency to be sparce, but.... i wonder if it's partially due to the lack of intensity of that color....
and a bit of news:
i have updated my website . finally. there are some new images in the portfolio section and i dug out the above figurines in my studio. they are now in the shop section. i'm also thinking about making dye sublimation prints of the some polaroids in limited edition. but i'm not sure about that yet. just thinking.....
i will try to post regularly, but i am beginning to feel the strain of all the things on my plate... so if i am a bit absent here, or on flickr, or on your blog i hope you forgive me.... i do have some mail goods to show off... soon.... happy tuesday!
