Packing

March 5, 2014

postcard packup

After several days spent working on other painful non-art things, I’m finally back in the studio. It’s a feeling of bliss followed by “what do I do now?”

Today’s first priority: packing up an old friend. I had completely forgotten all the memories packed into the Postcard Quilt. Each art card was connected to very specific shows and influential local artist in my life. I saw clips of shows I helped hang, one of the first shows I curated, and artists I greatly admire. It was a fun examination of things past, mainly that transition period from school through graduation and just beyond. It’s good to have it safely packed with hanging instructions and the works. I wonder what other works might move out and find their own life this year…

Next up: getting busy with a certain bird print.

      Yes, but I’ve not even paid attention to that old friend so it’s time to boot it out the door. All packed up, addressed and ready for the post office. At least one thing was accomplished today! 🙂

    I love that it all holds stories.

    Hope you’re having fun being back in the studio 🙂 I am itching to get back to mine at the mo, having been taken away by annoying non art things!

      It looks like this month will probably not hold much art. We have another house to get on the market in 2 weeks and there is LOTS to be done. Maybe April I’ll be in a better place. 🙂
