so this is what happens when i don't post often. you get a bunch of randomness. part of me wishes i had it together to post every couple of days - like i did in the good old days [when i walked 5 miles in the snow to get to school]. but life is what it is.
i took my students to visit sonya philip's studio the other day. you can see it on poppytalk. i also spied the above color palette on one of her mate's walls. color palettes ALWAYS do it to me. always.
i also just posted jen garrdio's studio on poppytalk. with hers you really get to see it as is because i just happened to be there and asked if it was OK if i took photos to do a post. there was no clean-up or staging... kind of nice. everything is in progress and all over the place. like a real workspace.
speaking of studios... i'm in that space. the calm before the potential storm. i have a solo show next fall at fouladi projects. a solo show close to home. been awhile. excited and daunted. and i have to start NOW.
need that cushion. the oh i thought this is going to work, but oh crap it didn't. the yes sometimes my work is labor intensive and so i need as much time as i can...
and this time. this time i have a CRAZIER than normal idea. one where i might need more help. people out in the world help. crochet help. more on this soon as i figure everything out - but i'm hoping [praying actually] that if this idea is a go that there will be some people out HERE that will want to help me. i think i'm going to need a lot of doilies. really people A LOT of DOILIES.
above are 2 dumb doodles i did on vintage button cards. basically just messing around because if i go completely cold in the studio it's a long-ass haul back up the mountain.
are you ready for halloween? with the little around it's much more festive around here - we made spider cupcakes today. [kit courtesy of joann craft stores]
the little determined how many eyes each would have. we had 1, 2, 3 and 5 eyed spiders....
meet the latest addition to our menagerie. gyoza. he was dumped at hubby's work. no owners. had to have his front leg amputated. so yeah. now we have 2 tripods in the house [3rd all time].
