I did this spread on July 15th. Well I sat down in my new workplace and did a spread- I will say it was emotional as it seems like forever since I last worked. I had been thinking about wanting to do a gratitude spread relating to this big move across the country. We are pretty settled in- always more projects to do but it feels like home inside- It really felt that way once we got the art hung- I missed the energy I feel when the art is up- much of the art we have is made by friends so when they art is up on the walls and setting on shelves- I feel the energy from them.
Got in some studio time-got our errands done this morning- right now it's 101 out and going to be like this for sure through Monday. This spread has a lot going on for me- the kingbird card is special- I got it on a trip a few years ago with a dear friend. When we arrived to our new home there was a king bird pair that were in our backyard everyday- then a couple of days ago all their young were flying all over-they would sit on the patio ceiling fan and ride it like a merry-go-round. So they are beginning their new life as we are beginning our life here. I love the face with all the words- have been giving thought to what things make me who I am- the naked man(I believe it's a DaVinci) is how I feel sometimes- this new start- When I didn't make art for those couple of months I was so out of balance- feels nice to be back- the nest with eggs- the unborn ideas that will hatch here in this new studio. And then my dear friends- my art brothers. We will be together this fall for some artmaking.
Feeling a bit more settled each day- discovered a great walk from our house- that was exciting- it is a park where the area had once burnt and a man carved sculptures from the trees. I was able to journal this afternoon- A Wolf at the Door is the spread. Thinking about how I tend to worry about things that I shouldn't- the critic and all that- mostly I am able to not answer that door- and doors... I have closed some by moving and now others are opening up.
