above left to right: me, jo packham and michael garland-as taken by my daughter, last night 6:30pm.
I know, I've been remiss at blogging again, but I've had good reason. I've spent every spare second (why are there never enough of those?!?) trying to get my art room ready for it's close up: a photo shoot for the Where Women Create quarterly publication. (Can't wait to get the new issue in stores February 1). In my defense, I had short notice, but then again, my art room really isn't kept in photo ready state. Ever. I wish I couldn't leave the house without everything in order, but i don't have that issue. Just the opposite; I have no problem working on something up till the last second, dropping it and running out the door. And I don't feel the need to get back to cleaning it up once back. My creative whim might pull me towards something else and off I go in that direction, assuring myself I'll be back to the other in short time, but that "creative time" is what I find to be so illusive being a mom and wife and everything else we try to be in life. Before long a real mess can pile up. I'm really good at that unfortunately. I came really close to getting everything put in it's place, but truth be told, I did end up pulling some of my "I have enough of this to sell some at my next teaching gig" stuff out into the hallway. Surely someone else must have had to do that for their photos?!? I can't be the only one, can I? A messy, whirling dervish at times?
Well, you know my art room's secret now. But really, this time I'm really going to try to stay organized! (Oh please, I hope I've got it in me!) I'm not sure what magazine issue my studio will be in, but of course, I'll be sure to let you know. Thank you Jo and Michael for the hours of fun!
