5,592 words later and the chapter on water soluble resists is done!
who knew i could talk so much.

been writing at my Dad's house lately
a great retreat with no distractions.

i do believe i can see the finish line now

will be so nice to make art again...
though the writing is lovely too

this is a page from an architectural, graduate student's thesis notebook.
very inspiring

sorry about the bad photography
i couldn't resist posting it

today, again

major lightening storm here in the woods,
loud, bright, and a crack that sounded like none other.
the smell of cap guns wafting in through the screen door as i write this book
child's play??

everything is okay.

still have power and the sun is shining. what more could i need?

time for a walk.
 feeling confident that
 i am going to know when to turn around

yesterday i decided to take pictures of leaf shapes as i walked,
a simple visual to calm my bursting brain!
here are a few

 herein lies the problem -
my brain is overloaded
 with words,
techniques, formulas and recipes,
the amazing work of other artists as i research for the book,
my work - its visuals!
in the past, present and future,
ideas about the studio, teaching
and workshop descriptions for other locations,
family, kids and a couple of college tours in the very near future -
like tomorrow.

and boy, do my dogs need a bath!

walking and concentrating on leaf shapes
seems to be the only remedy, for now

how do you/i measure success?
i'd like to know
