thinking out loud

Today as I thought about the materials I will pack for my trip north to the mountains, I know my studio wherever it is, is a temple. It has a beauty external and internal. It has a stillness that is sublime. It is a place where there is no time.

Sat around with a cuppa joe working on ideas for organizing in the studio. My barn door needs some hardware and I've been working on some ideas to piece together plates and handles for a new better handle. These are some sketches for how to use flanges and plates. I'm measuring the door and doing more drawings. This is the start. I've also been doing some overhead storage. I'm expecting to be able to create a storage space for some framed work too. Right now just measuring and planing.

Nothing is more fun than sharing art adventures with my art gals. This is at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts for the Female Gaze exhibition.  I think the title is absolutely stupid and I'm not interested in all of the art. But historically I felt an obligation.

When visiting ICA Philadelphia this past week I spied a piece by Virgil Marti by the reception desk. Nice.

Working on how to install my large drawing and an upgrade to my door handle.

Just saying.

Picked these up today. Ordered them at my fav Artists and Craftsman right around the corner from where I live. Lucky me right?

It's very interesting what has happened now that my #drawingaday project is complete. I'm verbal again.

Strange yes. I couldn't find a way to really talk about the drawings or what else I was doing in the studio while the project was happening. Now, I'm back.

My #drawingaday show has really been a blast. First making 366 drawings (leap year) and then printing and hanging them was another adventure. The response to the work has been wonderful with many insightful comments. To my surprise many of the drawings have gone to new homes. Thank you everyone.

A quick snap I took this morning as I signed the last of my drawings from #drawingaday. There was a bit of sadness when I drew that last one. It's over.
