Artists@Work: day 8

Day 8: First off, I forgot to take photos today. The camera was in my bag but I neglected to pull it out.  Sorry folks! Tomorrow I promise to update you all.

The artists talk drew in a large crowd, about 35 people. A huge thanks to all who attended. It was wonderful seeing so many friendly faces. All four artists spent several minutes talking about their work. Hester did an excellent job of gathering feedback from the crowd regarding the show.  My brain was in a sleep deprived world so my section didn’t come off well. Bill Shumway even bugged me about it afterwards. Oh well!   Julia, Elaine and Kendal all did lovely jobs. I have a long way to go in learning how to talk about myself in front of a crowd. Now give me just a person or two and it seems to work better.

With all the extra beginning events for our day, my production went down. Elaine seemed to make progress with her still images, gaining several more seconds of video. Kendal was pinging her glass (a very cool sound!)  indicating new cuts and progress forward. Julia was working with fabric, lace and photo transfers. It will be interesting to see how the new creations are mounted.

So tomorrow more images will come forward as life gets back to “normal” with our projects. Oh, and a big thanks to Kendal for providing great tunes today!!!

    1. Ha! Like I said, I need to work on speaking about myself… in a more positive way! Think the self-deprecation comes from feeling like my work isn’t good enough and yet I was accepted into this show. The brain still has a few creases to work out!
