Re-focus, hunker down, cuddle up
This morning while drinking my coffee in my kitchen I contemplated direction. Art making can be such an emotional roller coaster. I don't know if it is for you, but it definately is for me. Right now, in the art life of Dee it's time to get back on the horse and get my stuff back out there in the world again. My last show was two years ago and since then I have been incubating and collecting, connecting bits of flotsam and jetsam and keeping them hidden away in my studio for the right moments to make them into something bigger. I think I have enough material now to work on a whole new body and really plunge into the world. I was a little bored and disenchanted with embroidery for a while and spent much of my summer making studies and experimenting. Myself is getting pumped to make! December and January are full time studio months for me where I'll get to be a full time artist and therefore get back to feeling normal again. That means I'll have some interesting studio posts on my progress and hopefully some finished pieces. My plan is to work feverishly and not leave the studio. Hunker down, cuddle up with my needle and thread, pens and pencils.
