I do apologize-again- for the absence from blogging. Tonight is the opening of the show I am spearheading for the California Fiber Artists. It opens here in Woodland, CA at the county administration building.
I have three pieces in the show all of which you can see here on this blog- Organized Chaos, Layers, and the Crepe de Chine poncho with the Iris on it.
Two of the three pieces have been in other fiber arts shows in California and will now be retired if they do not sell.
Organized Chaos is the 45" x 85" piece with the intentional wicking.
Layers is the spectrum of hand dyed silk organza in layers.
The silk poncho is done with gutta resist and you can see that process in pages from the past.
I have enjoyed putting this show together. I will post pictures next week.
The one thing I have again been keenly aware of is that I DO NOT MAKE TIME TO MAKE ART. I keep coming back to this problem. Years ago I intentionally made Fridays my art day. No work. Only art making. I did that for a whopping 2 weeks and then fell back into my old ways of working only. Since my work IS art making, to stop and change gears to being what I want to do the way I want to do it is difficult.
This will be my New Year's resolution. I suppose blogging about my success at keeping this resolution would be one way to keep me honest.
What do you do about this? Do you have a schedule or use whatever is left over in a day to make art? Little help please?
