My studio is set up and functional and today I piddled in it for about 5 hours trying to get comfortable with where items are placed and how to move in the space. The new shared arrangement with Peter is nice. He was doing some technical stuff with the computer/tv connection. I didn't know when he was in the room or out unless he said something to me. With what I was doing today, the only time I couldn't hold conversation was when I was crocheting. Overall, it was a fair run for trying the space on for size.
I did a zentangle to warm up followed by a face sketch and ending with exercises from the workbook on crochet. But in full disclosure, a lot of time was spent browsing Facebook on my phone. Discipline is the word for the rest of the month and must be had to get a groove going.
studio music was Regina Carter's CD, Southern Comfort
A friend asked me about dyeing fabric in ombre and that got me excited. It has been 2 years since I had my dyes out. We're working out a Friday that she can come. This will give me the opportunity to to try out the set-up in the garage.
Trying to describe to myself what I feel like is going on with me as a creative person, I feel like I'm forever waking up from a slumber. The closing down of my Mellwood studio and the year dealing with breast cancer and 2 moves in 18 months created an alternate reality that I'm trying to shed or bloom out of the pod. But one thing I know is God is here in and of it and I'm trusting the process!
