The last two weeks. More source material than I can shake a stick at and some color work to ease back into my old space.

Tidying up after a studio visit with @matthewtmclaughlin 
No answers about these little colorful guys yet  but I know what questions to start asking.

Getting ready for a fun studio visit today.

Tried to get my studio as white and empty as I can.

Documentation day with @r.l.tillman

It’s about time!
Finally documenting the new clusters. Updates and applications galore in the next two weeks.
#workinprogress

For the first time in 3 years I’m taking the time to make some new drawing clusters.
#draweveryday #workinprogress

An incredible week. I did more drawing than I imagined and have tons of new ideas. 
It’s gonna be a shift to move back into my tiny space- local friends- I’m looking for some feedback on this new work- two people don’t fit in my studio but I have some ideas- let me know if you want to connect in the next couple if weeks.

Magical drawing detail

Studio outtake.
This has been the most glorious two weeks. Quality TIME and SPACE is a rare rare thing in my studio practice and the Virgo in me took a minute to accept that things went in new directions I couldn’t be happier about where things are going. Turned new corners I would have never been able to without this community. 
Tomorrow is the last day. Promising myself to keep seeking out that time, space, and community.

Still needs to be lit but it’s placement in the show is perfect.
Baltimore peeps I’ll keep you posted but there’s a family friendly opening on the afternoon of July 14th.

There’s always an accident when I install this but this one was the happiest of all.

At this point I’ve made 12 drawings and I still have several days to go. I was hoping to spend part of my time documenting work, but that can wait. Making is too important and precious right now.

Today’s Chroma

Space to spread out and photograph and have so many things going on at the same time cause your time is uninterrupted=game changer.
#artistsatwork #artistsatwork2018

The new moves are starting to get comfortable.
Today has been good. Our group knows each other well enough to ask for and give advice and things are moving and shaking up!

Water cups

Already 1/3 of the way through with this new book.
A trip to the beach, notes, and source imagery bonanza.

The feeling when you things have taken a new direction that you didn’t anticipate and know you are pretty set for new material for a while.

THIS is why letting others into your  creative practice is so important. 
@ginasuetoyou, an artist, performer, and dear friend and colleague of over 15 years was so generous with her thoughts, and time- and gave me an important read on a piece i have been working on for a year in the vacuum of my tiny studio.
The chance to spread out, work uninterrupted, and have support and connection has already proved so valuable. And It’s only day two!

Packing up key items from my studio for an awesome project that @theparkschool is supporting. 
A group of myself and nine other teachers are turning the school into a two week artists residency program.
I can’t wait to take the next two weeks to focus on creation, community, and conversation.

Got to the beach while it was still foggy.

Vacation mode/ new sketchbook.

End of this sketchbook.
Meetings meetings meetings and continued obsession with The 4 color pens.

It’s end of school year office clean out season. JT and I decided to hardcore purge. My desk is like a sparkly rainbow diamond.
The sheer number of slides involved in the clean out was mind boggling considering it’s 2018. He had these souvenir slide sets he got in Italy in the 80’s but obviously made before then.  I’m ruthless in purge mode but these got rescued from the bin to photograph.

From my one brief stint as a set designer.

@elf_girl (a KEY member of #teamchroma) got a chance to visit #chromadc yesterday and got this great picture!
Missing this project in my life this summer something fierce @lisasolomon. #chromajapan?

So good to see glimpses of it in its permeant home

Gonna miss Kindergarten and all this unit block inspiration

One day later than expected but these three functional ceramic pieces are up in the studio shop.

Meetings, Liz’s shoes, assemblies, last trip to The League for the year, a model in class, and full on dual 4 color pen obsession.
