What I did and didn't get done today....

I watched Mark try and fix the bridge that was all twisted from the flood.   He says it is ok to walk on now...


I had no idea what exactly he was doing, but it looked serious!

I admired my garden, that I had recently spent a week plus completely digging up....you can see an old friend of mine that got way overfired and warped who lives here now...

Found this thing washed up in one of the major rains, and it has become a garden goddess of sorts....

threw the cat outside to enjoy the last days of sun...she looks a bit vexed?!

and admired my darling teenage dog, who needed his little nap, as he is nearly 1 years old!!

and lastly, made myself work on this old thing, one of many I'm trying to finish up in the my studio of  work left unfinished.    Interestingly after looking at it here, I can see it needs something more.  Some leaf shapes maybe.  Sometimes you need a more far away eye to witness the obvious.    Not too productive today, but I did enjoy the beauty of the day!!!

Hello! Love your blog, Im in southern Ohio near chillicothe. Do you ever do any workshops or studio visits in Ohio? Id love to chat with you about your work as Im just getting ready to create a body of work for a grad school portfolio. Ive been talking with Janis Mars Wunderlich, Juliellen Byrne and Margaret mcAdams all semi local gals, getting their input as to what they think about narrative ceramics, grad school and how to approach it... Anyway love your work!!!
