I can’t get into the habit of writing again. There’s just too much going on to be able to set aside time to put my thoughts together.
How can I condense what’s been happening over the last month into one sentence? Hmmm Ok – I’m preparing for an Open studio event at the end of the month.
Although we talked about it ages ago, It was kind of a hurried decision to agree on a date we could all be free and then just do it – giving ourselves barely two weeks to prepare.
How much time do you need anyway?
Basically, its opening the doors and letting people see what we’ve been working on.
The preparation (if I can call it that) has been good for me though. I’ve been feeling a bit low over the whole reasoning behind being an artist kind of thing lately. I do this every now again…getting this feeling that it’s all a bit false and pretentious and a bit pointless, but then when I start to get involved with my own work again – I mean really involved, the feeling blows away and I feel like the reasoning doesn’t matter as really I’m doing this for myself. Because I want to.
I spent most of the day in the studio today. I’ve finished off work and I’ve cleaned up…and I can’t really think of anything else to say.
