Today my son went back to school. We were both READY! We squeezed every last drop we could out of our summer and know that it is now time to get back to work. I have been inspired by the amazing places I have discovered this summer and am filled with juicy new memories. Milky Jade waters, mossy totems, rotting red cedar, black rocky beaches and the white washed bones of the forest are all stimulants buzzing for a way out of my head and into my art somehow. Unfortunately I am not living in the moment and can't act on them yet! I've got a 3 month backlog of work to do for several upcoming events, the first of which is in a mere 10 days! I've signed up to be a part of the Skating with Scissors Bazaar to benefit the Rose City Rollers. I am excited about this show even though I have no idea what to expect. I can totally relate to the Punk Rock nature of Roller Derby, it's Bad-Ass with a lot of style. It gets my blood pumping and brings me back to those bygone days of my twisted youth. My lack of studio time this summer did not keep me from scheming and sketching out a few ideas based on a 'Pretty in Punk' type of attitude. I am having fun playing with staples and nails and leather and lace. I hope I can maximize the time I suddenly have in front of me to expand on this theme. I have a lot of catching up to do!
