Attitude Adjustment


My visit with Tommy was satisfying and very relaxing. We gabbed and watched Project Runway and I sat on my butt for two days. Not like I didn't get anything done, since my fingers were very busy. We both knit like fiends. Since the weather was robustly raining we nixed any ideas of leaving the comfort of the old fart chairs.
When I say 'satisfying' I mean, I got to say stuff that I have been thinking and she listened. It is so important to be heard sometimes. Many of my relationships require that I have the answers, and there are many times when I don't and it means that I have to expose my doubts and fears to someone who will not judge and will not try to 'fix' the things I am considering dilemmas.
I feel better.



This book arrived while I was away and I am hoping it will illuminate some artistic concepts for me that I have been struggling with for sometime. My camera is always at the ready and so I don't sketch as much as I once did.
I have been thinking that I should reinvigorate my drawing practices again, since there is a thread of this sort of thing happening on many blogs. What if drawing became my art again? What if I changed my attitudes about drawing and expanded my approach to this part of the art world? What if this gave me a different process and product that I could express myself with? I need a bit of a challenge, and I am hoping it is just around the corner.

  1. I have tried to answer both your emails and they are sitting in my Outbox and not going through. But it appears that I can go on line, look up stuff but email doesn't work. What's up with that? I don't think that has ever happened to me before.

    Will you do a book review once youve perused this book? I have been curious about it too. Thanks! (As if you dont have enough to do already! :)

    You know, you can 'what if' yourself silly. Why not just do it??

  5. I remember a long long time ago when someone in the Artful Quilters Blogring took her sewing machine to her drawing class and did a "sketch" of the nude model with her free motion foot. I'm not sure I'd want to try it... but it's a whole new direction to consider.

  6. Deb, I did that very thing back in my undergrad drawing class. I had heavy thread in the bobbin and the back was even better than the front, except the back had interfacing on it to make the whole thing stiff enough to negate using a hoop.
    You brought back a good memory.

    And as for the 'what ifs', a person like me thinks out loud, and I just wanted to share my thoughts. I have not always voiced my conclusions.

  7. I love annonymous' comment. I'm very big on 'what if' but don't do much with the results. I have also become very lazy because of my camera, I rarely sketch these days.
    I enjoy your blog so much and as an ex machine knitter I have loads of yarn of various thicknesses, so I think I will be joining you in creating those lovely colourful mitred squares.

  8. And I wish I could think of something pithy and Zen-like...maybe something like: it's not a change of attitude you need. There is no changing of anything. Your art & life are a continuum, a flowing of your voice, your spirit. Like all currents there's the warm & the cool streams--one sinks, one rises only to cool& warm & intermingle. Then, to keep pushing the Zen metaphor, there's the rocks & boulders with a little bubbling or a lot of white water. And to push the metaphor too far... draw from your deep waters and swiftly moving currents...but this is just too too sappy!
