Today I doodled out some patterns for robots and monsters, trying out ideas to see what might work well for some small soft toys. The Day of the Dead painted clogs are what I really wanted to work on the most, but they got pushed to the back burner during the day. Getting out the wet paint on the middle of the dining table during mid-day doesn't always seem like the best idea. Those mealtimes somehow just keep coming around, and we need the dining table for eating, for doing homework, and for folding the laundry; as well as for a good-sized creative workspace. Sometimes I do my best work after everyone else is in bed, so I'll shoot for that tonight.
Thank you to all who have responded to my posts, helping me to get underway and navigate the internet. I have more painted clogs partway done. So far they're looking good, with a Day of the Dead theme. Stay tuned after this brief message.....
The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know. I've just spent a day opening another online account to catalog some photos, then tried to intall a slideshow on this blog, without success. I'm really burned out, to the point that I can't figure out how to navigate around within blogspot to read if anyone responded to my question in the help forum.
I need a good night's sleep. I keep telling myself it can't be that hard, or nobody would blog!
Well, here goes... my very first blog entry. I hope this format will be a good way to meet people, to share ideas, to support each other.
I wonder what I will say, for thankfully my life is ordinary. I'l l try not to ramble.
Seven.Dog.Studio is the name my sister and I call ourselves in our joint efforts as artists. I currently live with two of the seven dogs. You can meet them, just look to the right. I hope to show you some of my creative endeavors, to get your feedback, and to meet many of you.
