Next up....?

So what now..? All my shows are installed and staying put (for now) and I am trying to think about what I am to do with myself...Philadelphia Open Studio Tours is coming up in the beginning of October so that is the PERFECT excuse to get my disaster of a studio back in order...(Justin always teases me and says I can work in a trash pile and/or hovel and won't be bothered by it...this is only partly true...I CAN work in an absolute mess, but prefer not to...)
And then what? Well, I've got some ideas coming to me as the impending baby gets closer and closer to coming...Strange images of rabbits and having babies and all that, but weird (of course)...I think I'm going to do some drawings and watercolors as prep work...I have plans to get to the Wagner this week or next to sketch as well...I've been trying to get to that place for years...literally YEARS! I can't believe I've never been...the kick in the ass has been that Justin will be cladding (aka framing out and covering in wood) their bronotosaurus leg (art handlers do the strangest things dont they?) and so he's been mentioning it quite a bit...
Anyway, my thoughts are to plan a body of work, or a group of pieces that relate to one another...and also to plan out some large, room sized installations...I've got some crazy ideas and might use my down time to get logistics figured out...so with all this inner brain craziness forgive me if I seem a bit scattered/all over the place in the next few months...heck, it might be more exciting that way? I don't know...
Anyway, off to sleep...cleaning studio and/or Wagner tomorrow, with photos to come either way...woo hoo!

I work in a trash heap studio for weeks on end...then one day, suddenly cannot take it anymore and clean and clean and organize and clean.

And then can't find anything, of course.

Yeah, I'm the same way...trying to clean in a way where I can actually find everything....labeled tool boxes and drawers and whatnot...we'll see....
