this should be day 20 of art, but alas, I have done none today.
I started a new semester of school today, so I was anxious...
Anxious about my classes.
Anxious about starting a new schedule and breaking the little routine my family and I have set up for the last month and a half.
Anxious about not being home as much.
Anxious about the sitters (my brother and his girlfriend) who will come to our home two evenings a week.
Anxious about art getting pushed to the bottom of the priority list.
and on and on
Some of my fears have been laid to rest already.
I LOVE my classes. Media & Techniques in Art and Fibers & Textiles.
The fibers class sounds like it will be a 16 week long communal quilting bee. Eleven students sitting around a table sewing, dying fabric, paste papers, embroidery, felting and more.
Media & Techniques is an Art History class but we get to do art projects in it. Yay! One painting, a drawing, printmaking and something else I forgot. Field trips to galleries and demonstrations in class.
I will only be gone Tues and Thurs 3 - 9, so still home the other 5 days a week.
I think it will all work out.
So, no painting today, but I will begin again tomorrow, and I WILL keep it a priority.
