Well, my studio is all unpacked after it's float across the Atlantic to New York and then on to the wilds of Upstate. On a clear day I can see to the Adirondack park from the end of my street. I have a cool barn and I keep finding really cool stuff in it.

I want to make it all into sculptures. Unfortunately I'm terrified. I have performance anxiety. So the downside of having been a professional artist on the festival circuit was that selling was important. It kills your creativity. I'm still struggling with "not making mistakes". That's completely ludicrous, of course. Any artist or craftsperson knows you make a pile of shit before making something remotely good. To make matters worse, no one wants to buy your favorite pieces.

The point is, I've gotta just jump in. I recently did that with crochet. I made a lot of crap. I'm still making mostly crap. It occurred to me that I would like to combine textiles with wax and paint. How to combine the yarn? How? It's what I imagine stage fright feels like.

Right... now to go look at some books for inspiration.
