This might be my new favorite thing...packing up a little bag and heading out to create poolside. Perfect. My new studio space. Got to take advantage of this weather before it starts to get steamy; today I finished up CED #107 and #108.
I guess I am at a turning point with these pieces. I started to really get into the textural quality of the modeling paste and having fun with the polymer clay 'sweets'...but in the last two pieces I am focusing more the texture of the paste and trying to incorporate some fiber techniques into my work, namely the beading/embellishing that I started to work with in grad school.
I still have clay pieces from this weekend, I think I will save those for the monthly self-portrait. The only thing with the beading...it takes...well, it takes quite a bit more time. But...I love the process...so maybe I will just work with these for the rest of the week and then see where it goes.
And tomorrow is the ANE show. This month's theme is Pop Art. I referenced Wayne Thiebaud and Claes Oldenburg in lieu of Warhol, hence my 'Sweet Thangs' series. Hopefully I will sell some work!
I had intentions of packing up my art bag and loading my car with the table and chair...I guess it's still early and that could happen. Not sure what I want to work on during the show, I know that I will work on my CED for tomorrow...maybe start the self portrait? Finish up the enlarged version of CED #92? I bought a nice art portfolio to put my prints in, the ones that I will be selling, want to try that out instead of my usual basket of prints...
Just like every night before an ANE show, there is so much to do. But I always manage to get it all done. One thing that has to happen- sleep. Staying up til 2am tomorrow 'artin' is going to be a beast! Especially without my business partner Jessie : (
