studio views!



This is my new studio, a dream space to create work and show work!

above: my flat file cabinet; a piece of furniture I desired for years, now all mine, given to me as a gift from a very dear friend.

in the open drawer: new works.

left: my favourite spot to take a break, to seat with a cup of coffee (most of the time I work standing up), to rethink a new direction, to daydream...

below: overcast early morning, worktable still tidy but ready to become a working arty mess!

transformations...

These are examples of my ways to get high! Yes, working with paper does that to me, especially the process of transforming everyday "things" into something else.
The process requires patience, focus, going out on a limb, inks, an etching press, time in the printmaking studio, persistence, forgetting everything else, and then a repeat of all of the above over and over again...
So what if these works cause the discomfort in the joints of my hands? I believe it is a well worth price for me to pay!

collecting, keeping, holding on...
remembering, forgetting, recalling...

November mood...

my "chant d'automne", digital collage of images created from garden cuttings and finds
brings to mind verses from Baudelaire's Fleurs du Mal, I learned so long ago... 
Yes! Tonight I am in this kind of November mood. 
Bientôt nous plongerons dans les froides ténèbres;
Adieu, vive clarté de nos étés trop courts!
J'entends déjà tomber avec des chocs funèbres
Le bois retentissant sur le pavé des cours.
