Well, my slump. It seems like nothing I do is worth doing. Art, I mean. I keep starting things and then giving up. I have a pile of thirty minute things that aren't worth more time. But...I've set a few goals for myself, and that is the only way I can work effectively. My first goal is to enter work in the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia's 2009 New Waves juried show. It is due by October 31, so I have to hustle. Remember the bunny who lived in my backyard a few months ago? I guess he's moved on to greener pastures, but I got lots of close up shots of him and I've been toying around with some sketches from them. So maybe he will be my subject.
Last week my sister and niece and I went to Florida to see my daughter and her husband. Her friends gave her a baby shower and we had a lot of fun. My granddaughter is due in a few weeks.
Isn't she beautiful?
While we were there, we saw a magnificent group of vultures. I know....vultures? magnificent? Well, yes. We were only about fifty feet from a group of about thirty and we watched them glide around and call to each other for a long time. It was one of those things that remind you that there is a greater power and we are all just a small part of the universe.
