The first few dots are started.
I feel like I've got my life back after spending October working on our school's one-act play. Our kids competed last week at state and won runner-up. We are always thrilled to place at a theater competition. We presented our show one last time this week for parents and the community. It was a joy to work with this group of students.
I have stacks of work in my studio to complete for my Thanksgiving show in New Mexico. I am also excited to work on this year's bookplate. Fortunately, I am teaching an ink unit for all of my advanced students so I have a work-related excuse to have my ink piece out on my desk. I am trying to figure out the best approach to reproducing the look of burlap. I think I have a technique figured out. I am also trying to give the gardening gloves some texture and character.
