Six weeks into unemployment... and equally as far into the planning phases of my show in March.
The next 2 weeks will involve setting up a workshop and emptying out the storage closet as well as finalizing the proposal, creating tool and supply lists & estimating time and financial resources necessary to carry out the plan. Minneapolis is rich in resources for the arts.
All in all at this point there are 8 sculptures, one installation and a performance stage.
The main focus and title of the show as well as inspiration for many of the pieces came... true to form for me... from a dream.
God bless the crumbling economy for allowing me to lose my job :-) ... The gift of time is oh so much more precious to an artist like me... It has been 20 years since I have been unemployed... I am not wasting one moment... I especially love the moments I am lying awake in bed in the middle of the night daydreaming :-)
Life is good.
