Too Much Left-Brain Activity

January 12, 2009


Ritual 5 – Acrylic Abstract Painting on Cradled Panel
8 x 8 x 2″
Available at Michael Murphy Gallery

The first days of the new year have not been the quiet refuge from information overload that I had hoped they would be — at least so far. There have been some little glitches in my original plan of just spending some time reflecting and planning for the coming year’s work, and just creating art.

I shouldn’t have started out by changing computers and all that that entails. That is still very much a work in progress, so I’m presently juggling the old and the new. But while I was doing that, I wanted to move some files and programs around, and while I was at it, I decided to change contact email addresses on some sites that I frequent, such as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

So of course while that was all going on I sort of drifted off periodically into Facebook and Twitter for way too long over the weekend!

Meanwhile, I revamped my website. I’d love it if you’d take a look and provide your feedback.

Added to that was a half day taken out on Friday to spend time with two artist friends showing them some software tricks.

My brain is tired from all that left-brain stuff. Enough! It’s out to the studio for me.

I hope you’re anticipating a creative week. If you are, tell us all about it.

Note:  The painting above is part of the new “Rituals” series. I am enjoying creating them with even more layers of texture and gels.

    I am suffering a bit too much left brain activity as well, what with fininishing a studio project which I have basicly done and researching.. also trying to get to grips with the disertataion..ideas buzzing round my head at three o’clock in the morning, at least it is a bit milder here than it has been, it has been so cold……back to rain and dampness…
    Did you know that your twitter links are not working!

    Your website looks great. Besides being easy to navigate, it’s filled with wonderful work.

    Chris, I know you’ll be ready to celebrate when you finish your dissertation. Thanks so much for the heads up about that Twitter link! It’s fixed now.

    Ed, thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your nice comment.

      Yeah, Jeane — painting is definitely the cure for this.

      Bob – thanks! I believe the “archives” links would work if I would archive something. I just haven’t, but should. Thank you for looking it over for me.

    I’ve heard from a number of artists lately that they are feeling too tied to the computer. Seems to be a new malady of the modern artist!

    I like the new website and the chance to see a lot of your pieces. It seems like a lot of the links in the “archive” section are not working, including the edition links, etc. There are so many links to check on artist websites!

    Checked out your new website and found it to have an appealingly clean, sophisticated look. The artwork isn’t bad either Martha.

    Cheers, Sherrill, Montreal
