Just One of Those Days

Ever have one of those days when you think you're just having a man come to take blood and urine samples from you for insurance purposes and he ends up trying to read your aura by looking to the upper left side above your head and "give you energy" by passing his hand like a wand around your body?

Yesterday was such a day. **gurgle**

First real day in studio.

Pinned to the wall a few wood bits from a crate I've had for ages (and been lugging around with me for the last 15 years, from many a cross continental studio to the next). Collected over the years from random places (boat building workshops, italian wine cellars, dumpsters, remodel job site trash bins) with no real purpose in mind.

Spent most of my time just looking at them from the corner of my eye, while thinking and whittling a small paintbrush.

Managed to make a small maquette for a "marquetry object",
for lack of a more descriptive name, title or theoretical basis.

New Year, New Studio

A studio move and upgrade: a professional building with professional management, amazing natural light, and a built-in industrial exhaust fan. Glad to finally be getting back to work after a long break (work in Seattle and some time in Argentina).
