In a way it was a pretty amazing day. It started no different than most of days, 3am came I woke made coffee, sat outside and watched the sunrise. Pretty much what I do everyday. My PD was pretty active this morning as yesterday I walked with the kids a bunch. Around 8-9a received a message from a FB friend interested in some prints, yay I’m thinking. As the conversation develops
It turned out this friend works for the Feds and is doing an article on disabilities, livinging with them,recognizing the limitations and understanding there impact on what one might have considered a “normal” life. And guess who gets to be interviewed? Me!! Yay. The article will from what I understand also cover some of my artistic pov on the healing or therapeutic property’s of art and my message of positivity in overcoming day by day the challenges of Parkinson’s disease. So after about 3 hours of studio exploration and interview I was wiped out had my standard lunch of dried fruit and nuts then took a nap, nice long nap. 🙂
This morning I did manage to texture that large cradled panel I picked up the other day and put the final touches and varnish on
Playing with Fire
4ft long 2ft wide and 2″ deep with any luck late night or tomorrow I’ll start the color washes and initial glazes for this piece. As soon as I can or am permitted I’ll expand more on the interview and keep those interested posted. Other good news it’s been slow going do to my recent physical limitations but, 2 of the 5 challenge pieces will ship so both North and South of the country and my UK brother will get a tracking number very soon as things are finally packaged, I really need an assistant at this point. Well it’s taken me like an hour just to type up this tiny little post I’ll update later if I can.
Happy Saturday I hope it’s been a good one for all.
