One more. Clearing out all the t-shirt drawers and turning them into skirts. I altered the corset top (shortening the straps a little) and changed the trim to black. Now I like it.
The new skirt has this little circle feature.
And I opened the seams and stitched them.
Now I'm seriously packing for EncaustiCamp. One week by the ocean teaching 3 classes in printmaking using wax as a collograph plate and as an "ink" to print onto paper. I'm bringing 2 etch presses and lots of pans of wax and griddles. Akua waterbased inks, wax blocks of color, aluminum and plexi plates and lots of paper. It's exciting to be teaching printmaking again; my native tongue.
Nathan is ever on my mind. My grandson beginning his new life in Arizona. We all miss him. Even though he was reclusive he was here.
My morning smoothie. Frozen blueberries from the last picking, strawberries from our garden, fresh mango, nootch, chia seeds, hemp milk, lime juice and wads of kale and spinach. And a banana and a handful of walnuts. Cold and wonderful.
Rising above what is dispiriting in the world like the trial that just ended and working on for equality, diversity and community. Replacing fear with curiosity, with art, with doing things that add to the well being of all. That's our work here.
See you around the bend.
