Sometimes crystals are added after the painting the blind drawings. They relax me in a different way than painting. There's a sense of discovery, as the blurs of paint take shape. Finding buried treasure. There have been lots of fairy tale thoughts and wondering what it is that draws me... Continue reading

Yes, I'm grateful for the fleeting moments of openness. These paintings are turning into a kind of Rorschach test. I loved those dixie cups at school events. I just went back to rewatch Dreamin' & see the image & see that my comment didn't go through...sigh. Will try again...

The morning light keeps things soft. Ha, I used to remember everything, now I have no idea why I've gone to another room. It will be really good to get to the other side of the next weeks...I hope.

Nope and it mostly doesn't matter. I used to be really smart, KNOW things, there are old college papers, that I don't understand now, that prove it.

Wishing you ease.

I do think it's better for the older kids who like school, but the younger and challenged ones are losing so much. I wrote one in college, but have no idea what I used to know!

I was sure I was going too far with this piece, but couldn't stop!
Toggle Commented 4 days ago on Time in cloth & thoughts at handstories
It's nice that it looks effortless. I'm wanting to push myself, but not sure how or to where, and every so often land back in the knitting chair to regroup!

Beginning with one of Jude's moons, this cloth exploded into being... "Cosmic Crossroads". The morning paintings are looking more and more like cloth to me. There are a few ideas about following this thread. So many ideas, and even with all of the time in today's world, it still doesn't... Continue reading

I suspect you're right. The waste pages have been good for experimenting, strangely, I hadn't tried stitch yet. I hope that you're at ease now, oxo.

Thank you SO MUCH. Playing really does lighten everything, and really, everything I did yesterday adds to what I might do today.

It was great to own it from the beginning of the day, so there were no expectations from anyone, including me. Thank you, I've been feeling the grays lately- maybe from this blustery weather?

It has been helpful, routine is great for a rut soul like me. Watercolor paints- tubes of different brands and a few handmade (not by me). The pen is one of the Pitt pens Jude recommended long ago.

Hooray for you! I'm watching reruns of the British Baking show. Hope you got through!

I’m leaning the same way.

Sounds cozy, except the tangled thoughts. Lots of knitting here today, we’ll, lots of time spent knitting, not a lot to show for it.

Mornings, days, even evenings have such a routine right now. Rarely is any day different than the one before. Wake up, shower, start oatmeal, closed eyes drawing, stir oatmeal, paint drawing, tea kettle whistle blows to be poured, stir oatmeal, finish painting, eat oatmeal, and then, aside from a lunch...

I can't quite make sense of time these days.

I don't know about cranking, a way of holding myself together-ish. And without a computer, or places to go, or a life...lots more time.

That was so much fun! I'm so sorry about your friend, and sister. Connection is so important, and a lot of work these days.
Toggle Commented Oct 12, 2020 on Can I hear me now? at handstories
Nancy, I hope that your new place will become your home place for you soon. I'm not a phone or texting sort, but I'm missing connection with those I normally would see now and then, so I'm trying to do what I can, but I think today will be spent in silence!

Oh, that's beautiful. I'm writing it down, thank you.
Toggle Commented Oct 11, 2020 on Can I hear me now? at handstories
Good for you! I miss talking with people, especially now that we rarely go anywhere. A few times this week I just called people, without texting to ask if it was ok to call. They were so surprised...sigh.

I stared & stared at this post wondering what "tilt" you were referring to- the leaning tree, slanted writing, crooked square? And then I put my glasses on- ha! Titles change repeatedly while the post is written, 5x on this one. I do love words. As for yellow skies, that's a new shift for me. I'm not a yellow person, but this cloth of Deb's sings.

There was probably more time spent on the phone this week than in the last six months put together. Several calls with friends and family. Mostly ok to good. Verbal skills are definitely going downhill with all of this isolation. The words that were exchanged are blurred together, much of... Continue reading
