we will see.
So sorry about my lack of post on Friday I was hectically getting ready to go out of town for the weekend while getting work done on my car, that I cannot afford, and before I knew it the day was done, I was in rural Massachusetts, without Internet, and had not posted.
But my weekend was lovely. My dear friend recently moved to a farm with her new hubby and they are beginning a farm. T loved the cows and touched one of their goats. I loved getting to catch up and also talk deep with one of my closest friends, along with eat wholesome food including raw milk and home made bread, take a walk for an hour without a sidewalk in view, and simply be out of the city. It revived me as well as reminded me how much I love my own community and life in Brooklyn.
This week the main goal is to finish this piece, it is getting there though I cannot say that I am totally in love with it. Aesthetically the piece is lovely but it is missing the emotional aspect that I want and love in my work. This may come out of the fact that it is a "commissioned" piece, based on a historical piece that I was not too crazy about, and that the deadline was a bit too close for comfort. If I was starting the project now I would do something totally different but for now am hoping to turn the piece around... We will see.
