It's springtime in the Rockies, alright. Yesterday the temp reached 75 F, so far today the high has been 68 F, and tomorrow's forecast calls for 4-8 inches of snow.
Uh huh. That's spring.
I feel as unsettled as the weather... my attention pulled in multiple directions. There's contract work to do and a little lino to work on... ideas to generate and administrative things to take care of. And of course what I REALLY want to do is go outside and play.
In honor of all this mental disorder, I give you some random, assorted STUFF.
Firstly... The Colorado Art Ranch 33 Ideas show has a video fan! Someone going through the Denver International Airport this week saw the exhibition and got so excited about it that he made a little YouTube video. Fun, eh?
Secondly... I've manged to get back to work on a tiny linocut that I started a couple of weeks ago. All that has been on paper is a small yellow square, which after it dried was WAY too dark. Thank goodness for oil based inks, which have a certain amount of sympathy towards poorly executed beginnings. Yesterday and today I put two lighter colors over the top of the first and I think I'm back on track now. Although my next intended colors are in the blue range, so we'll see how green everything starts looking!
Yesterday (I think it was yesterday. Maybe it was Tuesday.) David and I got ourselves sorted out for this year's Salida ArtWalk. Once again we'll be hanging out at the Book Haven, and this year I'll be all about linocuts! I'll do a demo on Saturday, June 26. Expect to hear more about this as it gets closer. And summer will be here before you know it because....
It's time to wish everyone a happy vernal equinox this weekend! Yippee!
I think I'll go wander restlessly around the studio some more now. Oh, wait... is that a bluebird? Maybe I should wash some dishes. I could carve some more. No, wait... laundry would be good. Maybe I should work on my newsletter... no, need to draw beavers for that project... no.....
