Not oblivious to South-by-Southwest going on around me, nor oblivious to bad news in the world, such as the Malaysian plane that has disappeared, but very focused on my work here in the studio. Anyone who works for herself must become resistant to distraction.
Here is my story in photos:
This could qualify as a distraction, but it is brief. And endearing. And fuzzy.
Not so much a distraction as an inconvenience. If I hadn’t sprayed catnip onto her cat tower on my work table, she would definitely have slept in my chair all day.
Happy vibes from the porch where I’m using my ring saw!
I am pleased with the way this ridge of the fossil design is looking already.
What was that about the tortoise and the hare? Slow and steady wins the race?
As soon of my bag of wet mortar was used up, we got out the bikes and took off. I work better when I’ve had some exercise and fresh air- don’t you?
I love sawing and fitting tiles to make little surprises in the design.
I had hoped that in 9 hours of work, I would have completed this section, but I’m only a little more than halfway finished with it. Oh, well. The ring saw cannot be hurried.
Here is a sample of what I’ve been listening to while I work. It is a locally-produced podcast called Two Guys on Your Head. Two psychologists who explain us to ourselves. Here is their recent podcast on Creativity.
Time for a Skype call with our west-coast family. And grandbaby.
