I don't know about others, but sometimes it takes me a bit of time to get back into the studio after a vacation or just time away for various reasons. Now I am happy to report that I am back to work on my art - full steam ahead! I am working on a few different projects, that's one way to keep from getting bored, and I have a few different deadlines. Yesterday I had an artist date with my daughters, we saw the El Anatsui
and John Singer Sargent Watercolors
exhibits at the Brooklyn Museum
. I highly recommend such artists dates to everyone, artist or not! I feel fully recharged.
Now to show you what I have been working on. The Irvine home commission is progressing along...

Much more hand stitching is needed here. Hopefully I'll have more to show after the weekend.
In light of the photos above I must end with a quote from El Anatsui - "The process of stitching, especially the repetitive aspect, slows down action and I believe makes thinking deeper. It's like the effect of a good mantra on the mind."
