The joys of living in an apartment... even with the facets in my bathroom dripping, the cold water lines are frozen. Yes... even my toliet is frozen. I am having to buddle up and run 20+ feet in the cold -18 windchill to my boyfriends apartment to use his bathroom. I now have a small glimpse of what people went through to run to the outhouse. Thankfully I still have running cold water in my kitchen and heat!
Well there really hasn't been that much snow, although it has been coming down lightly for the past couple of hours. The wind and the -18 wind chill I woke up to this morning is what is keeping me at home today. Classes were only canceled until 10 am today, but I am still not getting out to go to ceramics at noon. Instead I am enjoying a bowl of oatmeal, have the tea kettle on and my cat, Ziggy curled up at my feet. These are the relaxing days of winter that I enjoy. Later I plan on getting back to work on my wire sculpture and watching some more episodes of friends. Stay safe and warm!
Yay for really cold weather, negative wind chill and just a bit of snow in Texas. I get a day off from classes and teaching and get to stay home and cuddle on the couch with my tabby cat, Ziggy!
Brushstrokes, my intro to adult painting class started last night! I have four students signed up, but there is room for up 3 more students. We started with some basics, gradation wash, a wash with two colors and experimented with texture. Next week we will start with some color theory, some basic design layouts and start our first paintings. Call Hodges at 806-767-3706 to sign up or more information!
Starting this week, every thursday will be a sneak peek day of what I am working on. A behind the scenes look of work in progress and my thoughts, ideas, possible frustrations of current work. So be sure to check in to get the insiders scoop!
the not so starving artist blog:
Here's the deal... I am an artist and I love food! I refuse to be labeled or included in the "starving artist" category. Now, while I have been broke... I want to be an artist and eat my cake too (metaphorically and literally!)
