Where were they going without ever knowing the way?
Thanks for such beautiful responses to my last post *EMAILS YOU GUYS!* It seems like y'all want me to get a lil more personal up in here! I will definitely keep that in mind. The past few days I've spent a lot of time in my studio in Collingwood. If I'm being totally honest here, I don't use my studio that much. I am lucky to have a really big room at home and have been unhealthily working cross legged on my bed, or with a massive painting leaning up against my desk or something. I made all my paintings for my last show at home. I don't know why. I am a homebody at heart and although it's often difficult having a mammoth painting staring at you while you try to go to sleep of a night (spooky) - it ended up working out okay - but - I really plan to try and use my studio more from now on. I mean I always think that after I pay my rent each month but I mean it this time! Ha.
Don't have much else to offer tonight... I'm watching Q and A right now and find myself getting more and more interested in politics and stuff. I am finding it really interesting, mainly in forming my own opinions on things of that nature which I am not used to doing. Nothing can make you feel more important than having an opinion.
Tomorrow I'm being interviewed *on location* at my studio for an article in a magazine. I'm looking forward to this - gives me a chance to ramble about myself - luckily not politics. What did Frida say something like "I paint myself because I am so often alone and I am the subject I know best." That makes sense. Will post again soon :)
