I am still working...on a quilt...on titles...an artist statement....
"The tasks that been entrusted to us are often difficult. Almost everything that matters is difficult, and everything matters." Letters to a young poet 1903
Yesterday Ken and I had lunch with Lyn Logan Grimes my gallery curator and we will deliver the quilts on Friday and sort out a primary placement in the gallery. On Monday we will install the quilts with the framed works...well that sounds real good but I need to remember to just "breathe". We went over to pick up a small printing press but the bottom plate is missing so I will have to research a way to order another one or improvise with a piece of wood cut to size. This should really assist me when I get back to trying my collagraphs onto fabric. I am convinced you really need some type of press when you are working in a possible series with fabric images. I delivered postcards to another gallery, the tea room, and passed them out at our Licking County Convention and Visitors Bureau Board meeting. Some of hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts sometimes offer to put information our for their clients and visitors to learn what is going on in the county. Busy afternoon to say the least...whew this is work :O).
The rains continue here and the humidity is difficult for me to adjust to...the moist heaviness is making it difficult to breathe and today my dizziness has worsened for whatever reasons. I have joined Facebook even though I am not sure what the heck I am doing. Others swear by this social network but I need to give myself time to learn the lingo, the befriending, the event planning, political activities and classmate and old friends from school and undergraduate school. I will try it for a while ...if you have any advice or tricks of the trade please feel free to comment on how you make this social network work for you! I need to get back to my slow cloth works...Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
