Well....it is now mid-April and I have lost almost 2 weeks of working because of flood situations in my town and home.
However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I am now off from working at the high school for Spring Break, and am thrilled to be back in my studio sans illumination, the water level has subsided and we are back in business.
Thanks to Hannah and Georgie for their understanding.
This type of thing really makes you realize just how much stuff you don't need.
It also makes me think about ways to "clean out" my works. Tough thing to accomplish.
The questions arise "How spare can I be without compromising my love of representation, of form, of shadow and light? How narrative can my pieces 'be' without leaving room for others to create their own stories? Finally, how much of the old can be kept in combination with contemporary ideas? Time will tell.
The ride has just re-started!
