My internet connection, that is.
I've taken a long break, both from the blog and the studio, partly because the 'end-of-school/beginning of summer' is so hectic around here, and partly because I think I needed it. I'd liken it to the nap I just took, a siesta, if you will. I am infinitely refreshed and ready for action!
We've had a nice summer around here so far--Joel attended California Boys' State in June, and loved it. He's been playing all three sports with the varsity coaches, which has turned into a full-time job. Thank goodness he can drive, or the twice a day drives down to town would be killing me! Katie's spent time with friends and she and Jenny have spent oodles of time just messing around together--
I haven't done much artwork--haven't even spent much time in the studio--but today I hooked up a new (and undamaged) ethernet cable out to the studio, and I'm recommitting myself to my art. I really am most productive if I spend three or four hours a day out here, treating it like a job, almost. I also need to remind myself that a) art is a process; b) art is not perfect; and c) this is supposed to be fun...
so I'm ready to go! I took a cruise through the hardware store the other day, and picked up some new (to me) tools and supplies--so hopefully I'll have plenty to share!
