I guess this is goodbye, old pal,
You've been a perfect friend.
I hate to see us part, old pal,
Some day I'll buy you back.
I'll see you soon again.
I hope that when I do,
It won't be on a plate.
From "I Guess this is Goodbye", Into the Woods
Back in my own studio after a three-day workshop adventure with mastermind Stan Kurth (check him out here). The end of a great creative session is always a bit sad for me, as I so enjoy deeply saturated painting experiences where I am out of my own space, out of my creative element and fully present and challenged for several days. At the same time, I am quite over the moon with the new techniques, perspective and mojo I brought back with me! Along with this original painting by Stan (photo right).
Over the next few days, I will be processing all I learned and passing on some tidbits of Kurth wisdom. For today, I am focused on re-entry after a brief hiatus.
End of the workshop, and also end of the Twyla Tharp book, which I finished this morning. The next to last chapter, on failing, has one sentence which stuck with me; fix the things you know how to fix. And, of course, you want to have the skills to fix a lot of things! So the focus is on acquiring skill as you accumulate experience.
We've been isolated here in the woods this month, exploring themes and creative philosophy and connecting. There are only ten more days, and then we will say "goodbye old pal" to this 30 day challenge. Perhaps this was the perfect day for a piece titled "Fall", which hints at endings.
Today's "Pay What You Can" piece is "Painted Boat in Misty Rain", mixed media on panel, 20 x 16 (framed dimensions). This piece is professionally framed in matte silver. Shipping is anticipated to be around $25.
