Many Tasks

More framing, a little painting, time on the computer, time on the phone made for a day with nothing too juicy going on, but it felt good to wrap up some of the small tasks I had on my plate. So while it wasn't like eating a delicious feast, I did feel nourished and a sense of accomplishment!!

I love it when I have days to dig deep into a body of work, but the truth is that many of my days require me to wear lots of hats and be able to take them on and off seamlessly. I've learned to stop and start, to have mental agility in the way I approach a day. Along with mastering the disinclination to work, there is the interruption of work and menial work that somebody has to do.

Framing is not so menial in that it requires attention to detail, patience and caution. And the right tools!! Gotta have the proper tools. The computer work takes a lot of patience too, since sometimes I'm just slogging through it, not really sure of myself, but trying this and that.



Tomorrow is set aside for Nia and painting and maybe some football.

I like the way you frame your work Marla - though I agree that the mats always end up being a problem when you have to move them around a lot. I think in all the myriad jobs we have to do as artists, framing is at the bottom of the list!!
