Yesterday was wonderful because I had finally slept a decent amount AND I cooked up onion skins for some "please let me stay sane" activity to simmer alongside the computer work.
Hanji necklaces, part of the whole host of gifts I am taking with me for my many generous and kind hosts. I am staying in about seven different beds / sofas / floors during the course of my six-city tour (though San Francisco is a seventh: no events, just seeing lots of friends and pretending to relax).
Before ironing, in too bright of a light to see anything interesting, but a satisfying new teaching sample. I started to build my boxes for my solo show* coming in Portland but I got tired and am examining the results of today's dye pot (very different, because it was onion until I threw in an old sheet of cochineal-dyed hanji so the whole thing got thrown in another direction). There is a lot brewing, for the coming fall and summer 2014, but for now I have to stay grounded and finish these boxes!
*The show is called On Foot. It makes me laugh and then it makes me sad I haven't finished weaving a paper shoe that I started last year.
