May 6, 2016
So I spent the month of September, 2015 cleaning and organizing my studio. It was a good experience with good results. I planned on going on vacation in early December to visit with friends in the Washington, DC area. My back decided to act up around the same time. I decided to go any way. It was great to see my friends but lousy because I was very confined in regard to the things could do. I ended up having outpatient back surgery (Lumbar decompression) in late January. That went well but I needed a couple of injections to finish it off. I topped the “body-works” off with cortisone shots in both knees this week. Finally I feel pretty good and I actually feel like I want to get back in the creative saddle again.
So the following are my latest works.
I’m back to creating again.
I was given the opportunity to use the month of September to do something that has needed to be done for a very long time. Clean and clean out my studio spaces. I disposed of things I had forgotten I even had. Marked containers, got rid of empty boxes, donated useable (but not by me) art supplies and books etc…. Now I know what I have and where it is. The space is much more conducive to making and creating. I think I may even do some weaving again!
Today was my first every other Monday Art Day, and it was great. I did spend some time over the last month making things. Today I took the following photos of the work I have done recently.
