It feels like we all live in our own projections. Take away the lights and the screen and what’s left? 3/52 January 18, 2018 projection of a peace sign from December on to the ceiling in a first step towards projecting one on the side of a building. . .
I am still planning this weeks peace sign. Last weeks is available for sale in my Etsy store. I have also added some other peace signs and some mosaic pieces too. Check it out. I will be at the Bennington Farmer’s Market again this Saturday January 20, 2018 from 10 to 1. Stop in and say hi! Happy Winter.
stability is not always peaceful and peace is not always stable. 2/52 week 2 very short scrap wood pedestal table distressed etched and painted
This week I am going to make a peace table. I am making drawings and cut lists with vague hopes of having it ready to assemble Thursday. Stability is an important part of making a functional table so I have been thinking about stability as I outline this weeks project. What I keep coming back to is that stability is the right combination of strength, flexibility and balance. It’s finding that combination that can be tricky.
I will be at the Bennington Farmers Market tomorrow. Brave the cold and stop by and say hi. Some of my 365 days of peace creations will be available for sale as well as some tables and some art.
this looks nothing like it was supposed to. I am okay with that. When it comes to peace flexibility is just as important as commitment. 1/52 January 4, 2018 some snow and a torch
I don’t plan. It’s a problem. The problem is that not planning mostly works for me. I found out I was getting married two days before the ceremony. I wrote my graduation speech the night before graduation. My luck may be running out? It’s the night before my first weekly peace sign is “due” and all I have is a bad drawing and bucket full of snow. How do you plan for peace? Should you even try? I guess we’ll see
It’s a short week so I thought I would do something easy, a snow sculpture. But it’s been unusually cold so the snow is more air than water and working with snow is harder than I thought. I drew some plans and came up with a timeline. I am already behind schedule. It’s supposed to be a balmy 25 tomorrow so I should be able to build the base and start carving. Wish me luck I am going to need it.
playing with shapes is fun!
it’s 2018! I am excited for what’s in store for the new year and a bit apprehensive too. I mentioned yesterday that I have another peace project brewing for 2018. Instead of doing a peace sign a day, I am going to make one a week. I will chose a theme or material and post a finished peace every Thursday. 365 days of peace helped me build a creative habit and emphasize process over product. This year I want to get better at planning and preparing for a project. Old habits are hard to break and I made a peace sign this afternoon out of frozen food coloring on snow. Freeing myself from the obligation to make peace has given me the choice to do so. that’s the plan now. I will post updates as I go and hopefully I will create some larger more dynamic peace signs. Wish me luck I a hope you have peace and prosperity in the new year.
