I have been busy with life, and with only a little time to devote to art recently. Much of my “artwork” recently has been photography. I manage to do a little work in the studio and out & about! My studio work has consisted of a few new beetle people, now molded & cast, a mold & cast of a small but endearing older piece, and lots of digital image manipulation.
I have good intentions for a few different types of beetle habitats, but no start on these. I may just put all my beetles away for a bit, in order to force a new direction. That might work!
There are family events and visits coming up, plus some thoughts of springtime camping next month. So I may not have time for starting any major new art projects. But I hope I move on to more concrete (in both senses of the word!) work this summer. Standing at my computer is not nearly as satisfying as making more substantial art, artwork that I can hold and enjoy in real life! Nor is working at the computer good for my eyes or the rest of my body!
I would like to achieve something a bit more substantial now that my shoulder is less painful and the weather is improving! I want to make work using my tools and my hands, both in the studio and out & about!
