I love multitasking. I love putting in loads of laundry while waiting for layers to dry on a painting. I like sending emails while I'm on hold on the phone. I like organizing my errands so I can do a big loop from home, to place, to place, to place and back home again. And I'm at it again. I vacuumed and mopped the house, made sure the laptop and camera were strategically placed on the ottoman so that I could mop myself into my "corner" and blog while I wait for the floors to dry. Yes, I am that cool.
Life has been busy and full of exciting things. For example, I applied for my first artist residency and am now waiting to hear back if I got it. I might have an interview this Friday for a short article about my work and my travels in a college magazine. I leave for Winnipeg at the end of this month to sketch, visit, explore and take dozens of photos. And as I type this, I am firmly being sandwiched by the newest four-legged addition to my family....a 4 year old border collie cross (most likely rocket and/or jack rabbit....because holy man is he fast and a high jumper!) and the arm of my burnt orange couch. I can feel the love...and right now it's not doing wonders for my typing ability.
This is what studio life looks like these days:
The floors have dried, so it's time to put our beds back together with clean bedding and covers and put the next layers onto the canvases.
