It’s time – time to refocus and evaluate where to go from here. Six weeks away from home and the studio is a long time, and I would be dishonest if I said I am able to step right back into my creative routine. My bags, filled with teaching supplies, trunk show examples and unopened kits are still sitting neatly in a row ready for unpacking and storing. A task I will attend to in a little while.
While transferring and sorting images from the last part of our trip I came across the pictures I captured at Kakabeka Falls near Thunder Bay, ON just before sunset last Thursday evening. The timing was perfect and the viewing platforms on either side of the falls were ideal for capturing the water crashing into the canyon below.
Much like water never stands still life continues in its path. It is my mission this week to make my way back onto this broad road that has opportunities branching off in various directions. I have ideas, plans and sketches for new work but it will be a while before I post my progress. Much like good wine my ideas need some time to ferment and eventually clarify. Is it time for new directions? I am not certain of anything. There will be experimentation, sampling and branching out… and I am ready for it!
There is more teaching scheduled for October – both classes are full! I look forward to reconnecting with new and familiar students in both Yorkton and Weyburn.
Thank you to all who have made this blog a part of their creative lives – I am committed to posting regularly and invite you today to suggest what you would like to read about. I am also open to submissions from guest bloggers. Can’t wait to hear from you!
