As promised, below are some pictures of things I’ve been working on (but you gotta read my ramblings to get to them:). These are pieces that are quick to turn out and give me the most satisfaction to make. I wish I had the present mindset, and the time to work on very involved, intricate pieces that involve a lot of process and decision making. i.e. “good work”
I am working on a couple longer term projects, but they are not ready to be shown…may not ever be. So for now, here’s what I have fun doing. I hope to get quicker at this photo/upload process, and in the future I plan to have at least one photo of something every time I post.
I love comments and feedback, so if you visit, I’d love to know what you think.
I’m a bit unwell. I seem to have caught a touch of the flu, or maybe just a cold. I think I’ll shake it quickly, though.
Philadelphia is a great place. I’m so happy to be here, but today I couldn’t stop thinking about how great it would be to live in London. I went to the Philadelphia Museum of Art yesterday, on the only “pay what you wish” day of the month-the first sunday. It was great. Museums are so relaxing…even though there are annoying young college kids everywhere, not to mention the children running going “Wow, look at that!” and couples trying to act like they actually enjoy each other’s company, and then there are the couples who really do enjoy each other’s company, who are all sappy and holding hands and making everyone else feel jealous of their righteous union…I digress…
The point is, most museums in London are FREE FREE FREE! alla the time. anytime you wanna to go. You don’t have to wait until the first sunday of the month and go with all the other, annoying cheapskates…and let’s face it…I can’t afford to pay to walk around and be inspired anymore…I have student loans for my six years of that.
So, I’d love to find a way to move to London. I’ve been thinking about it all day…”Wait till I get my money right, then ya can’t tell me nuthin, right?”….
I highly suggest the Marcel Wanders show and the Bengali quilts in the Perlmann Building. Both were great. My friend Tony, though, didn’t like the Marcel Wanders show after he started talking about his work, above our heads….something about pretentiousness and communication… It doesn’t matter, though. The objects were stunning. And the space feels otherworldly.
uh, thas ‘all, folks!
