It’s been fun printing this week. I’m playing with colors for my exhibition print. I did one for Dixon too. When life hands you the chance to put your name and a museum’s name in the same place for a period of time, it feels worth making art about. So this week I’m printing a rainbow of options to see what I like best. What I really like best is a Warhol-like mass of them. That feels deeply celebratory to me. And such a thing may live eventually up my stairwell. But for now I’m seeing if I can get one that I’ll really like to use to promote the show. It’s a fun process.
I’m also continuing to do one or two good printing sessions a day but continue to take more time for myself than I have in years past. Yesterday was a perfect day weather-wise — low 80’s with a breeze. I took a long lunch on the screened in porch and finished my book before going back in for a second printing session. Then I took dinner out there too. It’s been good to carve out small scale daily happiness for myself in the midst of larger craziness in the world.
