Back Again, Finally



All my good intentions to post every day seem to have fallen by the wayside, and I'm not even sure why.

Richard's been on vacation for the last three weeks; he started his new job as principal as one of the local high schools today. He normally doesn't take much vacation, so that's been nice. Right after school ended I had some stomach problems as well as some school board problems (think maybe they're related? hmmm...). So, with everyone home and everything else that's been going on, I haven't even set foot in the studio since school got out.

I know it seems like being out of the studio might be a good thing, like a vacation, almost, but for me, the longer I'm NOT making art, the SCARIER making art seems. I think I'm better when I work every single day.

I promised some pictures of the mural--it's not completely finished, yet. I had each of the kids sign their name on a piece of paper; those will go around the edge as a border.

Do love how this looks.

I've got a very sad story to share, as well as tales of our vacation at the beach in lovely Cayucos, CA--so more soon.

I love that the work so clearly belongs to the children and the background gathers it all.

I demand stories.

I've been missing your blog.

I keep trying to leave comments, but I keep hitting errant buttons, shutting off my computer, etc.

I love the mural, and I love the idea of the names around the border. Way to have the kids own the project.

How are you doing with the kid and the boyfriend? Are you holding up?

I know what you mean. There are many things that become scary to me if I don't do them every day.
