Today I spent more time out at the Fish House, but before that I made a little notebook of collages (yes, I know I’m not telling about them, but I’m not ready to do that yet), and I received a shipment of supplies that had been slightly delayed. Unfortunately—and fortunately—they weren’t exactly what I requested.
Unfortunately the clayboard surface panels were not the 16″ x 20″ panels that I wanted. I received 15, 12″ square panels.
Fortunately the crackerjack studio technician Carrell got on the phone and ordered the 16x20s which should arrive Friday, and also, fortunately, I need to make 15 more artworks than I thought!
I did test out the boards as I haven’t used them before and I think they’ll work great.
Here’s a shot of my space as I left it today. You can see one of the panels on the wall and a stack of them on the table:
At the Fish House I worked indoors as it was a bit breezy out. Again, read a chapter of Hadrian and worked in a notebook on the beginning of a project I’ve had in mind for a few years—works inspired (don’t know if that’s the right word) by Meditations by Marcus Aurelius. (BTW, anyone over 50 should read Mediations, it might make you feel better). Right now I’m thinking that those 15, foot square panels might be part of something that comes from Meditations.
I’ll close this post with this pic that I took on the way to the Fish House (yes, a botanical wonderland and it is late fall)…
