Workloads are heavy, and my interactions with kids has been plentiful! Yes, I would love to be in my studio more producing my own pieces but, my education and finishing what I started does come first. May 2010 is not that far away. I had a fantastic opportunity to pull monoprints the other day at CCS. We (my class) were given a full demonstration then provided the materials to pull are own. This is all leading up to an assignment I have due in a couple weeks. So, what should my final monoprint be? Lately, and I'm not sure why but I have this attraction and obsession of Picasso and his Analytical Cubism period he went through. I know the final monoprint has to be 18x24, so, I've been thinking about doing a self-portrait based on this style of art. Not only because I like it but, to learn more about it and how I take it into the classroom as a lesson plan. During this period his abstract art had some identifiable parts in it, but still crossed the realm of abstract art. Well, I'm thinking I want to hide multiple faces within the piece of artwork. Just a thought, but I think there is a bigger idea in there and something that needs to be explored. On a lighter note I everything is well for you and your life. Take care and allow the creative juices to flow freely everyday of your life! :)

Wow its been a bit since I've been here. Meeting new influences and people who do wonderful art. I was thinking about what transpired last night, and you know many years ago I would've been afraid to open doors and examine new opportunities. Not anymore. Over these past 7 years I've opened many doors that have created many chance opportunities. Including last night. I feel so... yes, a loss for words one could say. To think anyone could do that to me. I want to stay home today and just work on art, art and more art. Well, have a wonderful day and may the creative juices flow freely! :)
