Short posts will be the order of the week this week. 'On the home stretch of creating product for the National Black Theater Festival which is in ten days, in Winston-Salem--the ultimate motivation: a 4-day show.
My plan is to have 4 new shadow boxes, 8 new clocks and whatever else I can manage to finish between now and then. I've got 2 of the shadow boxes basically done, and a third in progress. The one above is Niara, Ancestress of High Purpose. She is still in progress; her trade beads, fabric background and neck piece aren't in their final positions, but I like how she's looking so far. I've finished 5 of the 8 clocks, so I'm in good shape there. New product development, single mirrors, a couple more tri-mirrors and at least one more double mask mirror is what I'd like to complete. What I actually do get to finish remains to be seen, but that's my goal.
I've never been good at putting goals down on paper; I guess it's that Virgo 'all organization in the head, all the time' thing. Of course, as I get older...no, we won't go there, right now. Suffice it to say that this post lists my goals, and I'll review my results in 9 days.
And so, to work.
