If I was invited to my own studio…


I would think it’s a co-op of about five different artists and I wouldn’t even know what to pay attention to.  No wonder when I get there I’m not always sure what I’m going to work on—I want to do it all and sometimes, unfortunately, that’s immobilizing.


I think at this stage of my life I am seeking a more direction.

I don’t want to get static or rigid, but good grief, I think there’s a space in between.


I’ve decided to take a few minutes, get quiet and see what I want to work on BEFORE I take off for my studio.  I’m hoping that simple act will get me more focused and deliberate.  I’ll let you know if it works…but I might forget and you may need to e-mail and ask me about how it turned out. It seems like this just might be a natural state of our world…but I want to fight it.  There are so many things to pay attention to that it’s overwhelming.  OK, off to the studio, but first, I want to check out that song, book, technique, read my e-mail, the news, oh there’s a video I bookmarked…aaaarrgggghhhh.

  1. it is ALL beautiful Lisa…
    this turn of season, transformation…
    I am cooking up some oak leaves gathered on my morning pajama walk
    layering their curves over my summer lists…
    the sun is shining and there is that caramel-scented melancholy in the air…
    thinking of you and wondering about a playdate…

    I especially love the the tangle of string.

  2. I love this post today; it’s SO you! It certainly illustrates the issue you write about, trying to decide on which of your many talents/interests to focus.
