Quote for today:

If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you:
I am here to live out loud.

Living out LOUD!

That’s me, buddy…yea you got that right.

Not a lot to report…I have a new plaster based work on the easel, and it’s coming along. I have missed working in plaster and it’s a fun return to my roots.

I’ll show pictures later.

I am taking some of my work to a photographer today to get slides made for a few upcoming jury events I am going to apply to. I look forward to having a good picture of ‘Mars in Retro’ because it’s a hard one to get a photo of.

It’s a day off here in the studio, I will be working on marketing and preparations for upcoming shows and events. It’s an office day here, no coaching clients today. I would love to be able to just paint all day, but work has to continue on the advancing of my career…it’s all good.

The boys get out of school soon for the summer, they are excited…I am too…but also scared of what they are going to “do” all summer while I continue to work and do shows…I want them to have a good summer…but I also don’t have the 800 a month to send them to summer camp to make sure they have fun. Good lord when did it get so damned expensive to go to summer camp? Sheeesh!

Well…anyway I have got to get running, just wanted to stop in and give a shout out to you all…

I’m off to the races.

Have a good one all,

Heather

  1. I like to live out loud too! Great quote.I’m intrigued by your mention of plaster work and can’t wait to see photos.I’m also thinking of ponying up the money to have a pro photograph some of my work. I think it will be worth it in the long run.My daughter is also almost out of school – 30 may. I’m planning on doing clay with her. But, then again, I don’t work outside of my home. I can see your dilemma.

Don't be shy!
