I love that expression–when I feel hesitant or have a little trouble getting started, it serves as a gentle reminder to just get started and your Muse will find you.

Just found out I’m one of eight 3-D artists accepted by Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, NC for a future exhibit. Thank you, VAE!!!

I have been working with 5th graders at a school in Raleigh lately, catching up on stuff and making some items for garden shows. I’ve got 5 more days with this school between now and the end of April. Also will be working with students at another school for 10 days in April and May, so things are hopping. Have not made as much progress on my bigger sculptures as I’d like, but I’m not complaining!!!

However, I am itching to finish the two shoulder cats–they are dry or almost dry, ready for a coat of underglaze. And to finish a third sculpture–that piece was quite daunting and has had a few surgeries. But now I am happy with it and very excited at the prospect of finishing it soon.

So no resistance, but this feedback from VAE is a reminder that it is time to make time to make the donuts–some very big donuts.
