I went into college last week to see if the blankets were ok. I had been so worried, but I saw Sarah and she showed me them. They’re stained but the impressions have come out. What a relief.
I think I just shouldn’t have got out of bed this morning, actually I shouldn’t have got out of bed for the whole week! I don’t know what’s up with me at the moment but I can’t seem to do anything right. In work I had to put a display up three times because I kept putting it up wonky. It looked fine close up but every time I stepped back it was ridiculously skew-whiff. I dropped a students piece of work down the back of a unit (and after a major panic of what I was going to do) I had to unscrew the back panel of the unit to get it back out. Besides that though everything was fine.
I was planning to put the Christmas tree up tonight with the kids but I think I’ll wait until the weekend, somethings bound to go wrong. Might have an early night instead.
I had a nightmare of a day yesterday in college. I ruined the blankets on the press! I had it set to tight when I put a plate through. The ink came through the paper and the newsprint onto the blankets and it’s also left an indentation. I ran paper through loads of times to try and remove as much ink as I could, but it’s marked really badly still and I could still feel an indentation. Sarah was really good about it but I feel so terrible.
I’ve been helping out in my mums floristry shop today, but I haven’t really been much help because I’ve been thinking about what I’ve done.
Needless to say I haven’t done any artwork today.
I’m so annoyed with myself. I’ve had three migraines this week so I’ve hardly got anything done. Had to go to bed this afternoon because it was so bad, I couldn’t see properly and felt so sick. All better now though!
I’m at the Williamson Art gallery tomorrow running a workshop with Christine Taylor again. I’m not prepared at all. I’ll get myself together by then though.
I need to make some cardboard plates for Tuesday when I go into college, but I’ll get stuck into that tommorrow night when I get back from the Williamson. There should be plenty of time for them to dry.
Today I printed more cells, this time in reds and purples. I’ve only made three cell scupltures so far. I’ve brought the prints home to dry so I can hopefully sculpt them at the weekend. I’m feeling as i I should be a lot further a long with what I’m going to do for my mid-review showing of work. I’m going to have to sit down at the weekend and re-think what I really want to do. Only two weeks left until we break up so I really need to get a move on.
