The mood in the studio has at times been intense. I'm connected to the compass and working away on two pieces now, both measure, 18" x 18" on BFK paper. I'm still combining paint, (my free Golden sienna and alizran) prints and various media. A touch of plaster, a hand cut block used as a stamp. Little decisions developing into bigger ones and then there is the time factor. Real life having it's pull on me...dinner, shopping, banking and sleeping etc...? Pablo emailed this excerpt to me knowing I liked it so much and that it seemed to fit with my mood.
Excerpts from T.S. Eliot's popular poem," The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock".
And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street
Rubbing its back upon the window panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And yet for a hundred indecisions,
Before a taking of a toast and tea.
Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.
This weekend looks good, a few obligations this Saturday and then free and open time. We are in a drought and our neighborhood is allowed yard watering only on Tuesdays and Saturdays before 10am and after 5pm. I've been forgetting and the yard looks so dry. I'll get out my watering can tomorrow...have a great June weekend!
