Sweet Interruptions

May 5, 2017

It’s such a joy to spend time in the studio with no interruptions — except, of course, from the dog and cat. I think those interruptions are a given. Just as I get settled with my music and my papers out on the table, the kitty sits down and stares up at me, asking me if I forgot something. No, I didn’t forget. It wasn’t time for her to eat, but tell that to her. So I feed the cat and sit back down to my work table. Five minutes later, here comes the dog asking to go outside. But no, I don’t dare sit back down, because in five more minutes she’s going to want back in again.

In the middle of all that, I did manage to get three new collages done. By the time I finished these three, I was on a roll and wanted to keep going. But now it’s supper time. Theses are already listed in my Etsy shop.

And here are the fur children who make my life more complicated than it could be, and more joyful than it would be without them!

    Cute kids, Martha! Love you’re new pieces…they make great studies for large paintings.

    Love the story of the fur people. Also collages. I am making three x 5′ x 15″ boxes, collaged on the subject of depression, prevalent in sea-side towns. This is an installation work which is keeping me engrossed. My own fur people keep hiding in the boxes. I call the work “Black Sun” (after theories of Julia Kristeva).
