#1: art

expounding a bit on my new years resolutions. as always…it’s more for my own thought unpacking process than something i think is all that interesting for everyone else. feel free to skip along 😉

#1: art

i’ve been telling people (chances are, if you’re interested in this blog you’re a close friend/family and i’ve told you) that my house has become my art lately. problem solving, project-making, etc…

well, turns out that’s not enough. i spent the christmas/new years holiday devoting several hours a day to drawing and i’ve come away with a new opinion. practical art is wonderful. making a home is unendingly satisfying. but, drawing….drawing is therapy. it’s like remembering i speak another language. it forces research and thought that’s far less concrete. it’s playful and empowering simultaneously.

so, this year i’m going to make art – the kind that hangs on walls or sits on pedistals or gets published in books. and i might even show my work…which I haven’t done in over 5 years. hold me to it, will ya?

the piece i was working on over break (it’s distorted on my screen, but if you click on it it’ll give you a less distorted view. if you click on THAT image it’ll give you a larger view):

“The light which puts out our eyes is darkness to us. Only that day dawns to which we are awake.” – Thoreau
