and I'm still alive! I made an accountability agreement with Juanita...I would email her daily photos of what I did each day in the studio in preparations to meet deadlines. Form Not Function was met just with a smidge of a second to spare. I spent a couple of hours reducing the size of my images with a finicky internet connection due to network issues (the man believes we have been the victim of malware). I am slightly worried about the quality of my photos but I did the best I could with the time and equipment I had. I borrowed a photo tent from Uneena, a studio neighbor at Mellwood and there was a slight learning curve with it and the lightening, etc.
Tomorrow I'll return to working on the boats for a November 7th deadline. I'd like to be in this exhibit, but the juror has been the same juror for the last six-seven years and I don't know why they keep doing that. It would help, possibly, if I was a fan of his work but I'm not and the exhibit has gotten predictable. Textiles have been in previous shows but I was personally embarrassed by the shoddy care in construction and not by any means am I hard to please when it comes to textiles and fiber, since I'm excited by all of it. But it was my impression that the artist threw it together without much thought or concern but just to have something submitted to the exhibit...and luck had it, that the piece was accepted.
Its that time of year where I start thinking about goals...what I'm pondering is placing myself on a production schedule for smaller work like the 12x6 or 10x10 sizes or either dedicating a month to an entire quilt from start to finish. This might be too far reaching since winter is coming and I just don't handle the season very well at all. I tend to pick the Learning Curve curriculum back up during the winter as it keeps me somewhat productive even if I'm not actually bringing anything to completion.
October 28th is the next trolley hop for Mellwood and Frankfort Avenue...myself and other studio neighbors will have a pop-up exhibit for that day. Come by and do your part to help Louisville stay WEIRD :) Plus the Canadians have invaded...so come check it out!
