...I am a total slacker (not really though.) I haven't posted since leaving Hambidge on May 9th. My re-entry into the real world has been tougher than I thought it would be. I really found happiness at Hambidge, and now know what I need and want to do with my life, having had this experience makes it tough to come back to oil changes, bills, email, returning phone calls, etc. I was spoiled with the Fischer Studio, so upon my return I needed to overhaul my studio space at home (again) to make is a bit more suitable for painting. Having used the space for charcoal and pastel for the past two years, everything (everything, really) was covered in dust, and that dust was getting in my paint. I had to do a lot of sweeping and vacuuming to get things in to better shape. I have been painting and drawing since my return, but have found it tough to get back on a regular blogging schedule. I will get a post up about the unloading of the Anagama kiln and then get back to posting regularly about studio work. I promise...just give me a few more days. Rest assured my friends, all is well and good and things are happening! Oh, things are happening!
