At this point, I'm spending nearly every free moment in the studio in preparation of my upcoming two-lady show opening on January 30 (details below). I finished three large prints this weekend but I want to wait until next week to show you a few more peeks. By that point, I should be nearly done! But, I wanted to duck into this little world for a moment to report on the most beautiful grays and greens.
It's been raining for the past few days but I secretly adore it--especially since I need to be inside close to my linoleum blocks and sewing machine and scissors! I also adore it because it turned our little apartment into a quiet refuge of afghans, favorite sweaters, homemade chili, and the most amazing fresh-baked scones. I think the dreary weather inspired my mister to turn to the kitchen for an added bit of warmth.
I managed to prowl around our block for just a few minutes between rainfalls: I investigated life in our winter garden, marveled at my favorite leafless peach tree, and encountered our sweet neighbor's cat also taking a stroll between storms. The grays and greens were absolutely gorgeous, perfectly contrasting from sky to earth. After a brief stroll, the sprinkles started to fall, and I obediently headed back to the studio for another round of cutting, sewing, and printing.
I'm equal parts nerves and excitement about this upcoming show, if only the next 2 weeks had 35 hour days.
