I (think) I've finished painting my studio wall and am loving how the patterns travel from my painting to the wall. Even though they aren't identical, nor is the paint, they connect. Over the past few days I've taken a bit of a break from the series of paintings I'm painting to send away. Besides working on my studio wall, I've also been working in my altered book (one I began as a sample for the high school classes I taught). I find that I need the mental break in order to come back to the work in progress with a fresh vision.
Today I have a long day at work ahead of me, filled with displays and meetings and planning but I'm excited for it. I've been given a promotion to Art & Culture Coordinator which includes arranging and hosting all author visits as well as planning and arranging displays along with curating exhibit displays and art workshops. One of the things I appreciate most is having a fairly flexible schedule so I can still be involved in other things, like another community mural with kids.
Hopefully I can get the last few paintings done over the next week or so. The weather has been so beautiful that I also want to continue to take advantage of my favorite season while it lasts.
