artist's way: week 8

by gl. at 11:14 pm

a very emotional cluster on tuesday night as members created day of the dead altars for people they had lost: in this case, they had both lost their fathers. the wednesday morning cluster members created altars for friends they had lost, which required a lot fewer tissues.

one of the wednesday morning members shyly asked if i could copy a demo CD she only had one copy of and had been afraid to let anyone listen to for years. another wednesday morning member is so thrilled with her artist's way experience she's planning on teaching it in salem herself in 2006, "and i'm just going to copy you," she says. certainly i've adapted pamela's excellent techniques, and thus the cycle continues.

center (connection): i made a feeble attempt at an altar for amelia using an izone picture i took of her a long time ago and her ultrasound images. but it didn't communicate what i wanted and hence no picture. that's the beauty of the "quality through quantity" ethos: i don't have to love or share everything i make. i just have to keep making. :)

music: cowboy junkies' the trinity session because boy, is it sad.
