I woke up to a cerulean blue sky, a wonderful, cloudless sky above tall maples that line the road in front of my home, they rise a bit higher because the land crests on that side of the hill.
I am ready to write with black coffee, a small raspberry bar set under the Tiffany dragonfly light on my left. I love Tiffany, this one is a reproduction. I love my writing desk, its a part of the coziness I have created in the living room. Four favorite vases line the wall, a brightly painted antique vase with dried flowers in it, a Poole Pottery vase from a friend from England, a much smaller purple ceramic vase Thomas made, and one that is a very small pitcher that looks like a crow. Both Tom’s vase and this crow hold my fountain pens and pencils, a fingernail file and tweezers.
I can look out the window, know when the mail man is done his weekly ritual. Once he has gone I can check for pen pal letters. I have created a very welcoming, warm room. Perfect to write in. It is important to have such a space separate from my art. I have to remember my poor house plants as they are in the studio because the sun comes in through the windows. Perfect for them!
My focus has been on writing more than art at this time. There is a great deal of prepared art to use in the manual. The focus is to write my blog, and wrap up the instruction manual for Shibui Found Image Art. I love to write. It’s always been poetry or writing___. Research as well. Best wishes!
