there's little i control

working on bots

hi. long time no type. it was getting to the point that if i didn't just post about something, anything, i might not ever post at all.

i came home to a long list of tasks to accomplish... 2 new classes to start [drawing 1 and digital imaging 2] a new segment in the painting class, a host of emails to follow up on, an artist talk to give.... blah blah blah.

my trip was fantastic. i love being transported. it also now feels very far away already....

i have still not had a chance to really catch up w/ everyone although i do know that wendy had her baby [post by "the boy" on the whole thing {get ready to be teary eyed} here ]

i know i missed gwen's trip here... and that she wore green.

above is a photo from the robot install that i started yesterday at the san jose museum of art . there's a 22 foot styrofoam robot already installed. it's amazing... i'm trying to think/document the process of doing this piece. if i can wrap my head around it i might do a bit of writing on that for my friend timothy . that's what i listened to yesterday.... there were so many people buzzing around setting up stuff that i had to block them all out to get my work done.

at one point i took a break and one of the installers said to me... i saw you lying down earlier and i thought - she's taking a nap?? then i realized you were painting while lying down. heh. i found that really funny. can i just say HOW NICE everyone is there? my god. it's like being an art princess. they thank you for everything - they are enthusiastic - they get you a ladder and a chair before you can turn around... they laid a beautiful cardboard tarp for me. a girl could get used to this....

looking forward to seeing what else has been going on. tomorrow i go back to paint on my wall....

thank you guys so much for all the tank and vacation love.... i can't even begin to explain how i appreciate it!!!

    Yay! Good luck with the installation! Looks like a pretty good playlist as well...

    Yay, your back, I'm thrilled!
    It was really hard to be so comparitively near you and not come visit, felt like a stones throw, but the brother's plan had no room for deviation, and no arguing cause he paid for the whole thing (lucky me).

    I'm loving this art princess business of which you speak, would that it were always so (see how i slipped into princess talk already)

    So exciting that you are installing more, and with so much else happening, do you get time to pee???

    Good luck with it all and thanks for taking time to pop by when you are clearly so incredibly busy. xox

    Happy you had a good holiday, sounds like your long list of work is starting again (but then, I've always admired your ability to multi-task). Digital imaging? I'd like to hear more about that...Loving the idea of an art princess, good luck installing.
