as you may have gathered i'm in Columbus, Ohio seeing how things are "on the other side". nope, haven't passed over [contrary to what you might think after earlier posts] but am relishing being a student in a seven-day intensive workshop led by Canadian artist Dorothy Caldwell
it's an interesting class with some 21 participants all working in quite different ways within the broad scope of textile-based art practice
this is a situation i haven't been in since i finished grad school in 2001. i'm thinking everyone who teaches [no matter what the field] should regularly put themselves on the receiving end...
each day after class i wander about in the late summer evening
blue stains remind me of the blue booby
Felis catus soaking up the last of the day's solar energy
lovely Rudbeckia purpurea blooming along the sidewalk, nurtured by some thoughtful Columbus resident
and finally the fore and aft views of some of this week's gentle work
