nothing and everything in particular
i woke up to the most amazing fog.... but by the time i had my coffee and grabbed the camera it had alreday disappated a bit.... fog makes me think of hitchcock.... instantly makes me want to put on a hood and wander around.
the first day of class seemed to go well. i have about 13 students thus far - which for me is a perfect number. i hate having really big classes. smaller is more intimate and opens up possibilities. i feel like i can cater the class to the individuals instead of just trying to maintain some semblance of order. the first day is always short for me though. just going over the syllabus and supplies for the first project. i'm excited because i have 3 students from my drawing class in this class. it's much nicer to already know a few people instead of starting out fresh. i really wonder sometimes what my first impression to the students is.... to me its incredibly important that the class seems serious, but also not too heavy handed. we are here to work - and art is no joke - but life is not fun without humor. i always struggle on how to get that across.
more polaroids from this fall. black and white registers so differently doesn't it?? why does this still surprise me??
i'm excited because my sheets arrived yesterday in a beautiful green box.... know who else has these sheets??? and who also has some work of mine? renee . she posted the other day about putting my drawings up on fresh paint. something about seeing where my work lands makes me very happy.
so this post was totally random, but.... this is how my head is working these days. must run. grocery store... studio.... have to finish work. must arrive by Feb 12th [gulp - learned that today]. i have a lot to do.... bye!!!
