checking in

quick check in before hitting the road (to minneapolis) early on wednesday, getting home late thursday and setting up for open studios saturday and sunday. i had studio time last night & was uninspired, despite a trip to boise art museum to see a wonderful catherine courtenaye exhibit.

i have so many things started and so little close to completion that i am a bit overwhelmed. that and needing 45 inches of new art for november. luckily, i have 12 hours of dedicated studio time this weekend! but i feel sort of directionless. i did go through photos and found some crane and fox shots that i want to paint in a similar manner as the hawk. the creative logjam has to break at some point.

no studio time tomorrow night as it's an early flight. maybe traveling will spark something.

i am looking forward to open studios this weekend. not doing much besides some snacks & drinks and setting up some art for sale (hopefully, if the weather holds). mostly i plan to hole up in the studio and answer any questions. i think it will be fun.

maybe i'll be able to post something artistic from my trip- hasta-

Somehow it seems to be the summer/fall for creativity blocks. I'm still twiddling my thumbs waiting, though your photo does make me want to be in the studio working.

Art is a fickle mistress!
