Conversation 2 & 3

 While I didn't get to stitching up a new strip yet this week, I did spend several hours this past weekend finishing the previous week's strip and painting up Conversation 2. On top of that I cut about 20 stencils to use in a teacher workshop with my colleagues. (I refuse to do"painting with a twist" where all the paintings end up all the same!)
I didn't have as many photos to work from this week, but apparently it's Spring and all the Azaleas are in bloom.

From our pair of bushes I collaged these two together:
All those azaleas will be fun to paint.

I went to the Philadelphia Sculpture Gym on Saturday and saw Christina Day's piece:
She was working with all recycled materials- lawn chairs in this instance. I believe she had a RAIR residency, which I would love to do someday....

Conversation 1 & 2

After last week's digital collage I painted this small composition.
After another week of texting images with my friend, these 2 seemed to echo each other the most. I made another digital collage blending those with  3rd photo I took which became this:

Unfortunately, I spent more time napping than working this afternoon and evening. I barely finished last week's Daily Notes strip, and for the first Sunday since January I haven't got a new strip started.
 This past week was the start of PSSA testing at my middle school, and the accumulated stress of the week has taken its toll.

Conversation 1

Starting something new with a friend. This is the result of week 1. I'm not sure if it will become something else or just be as it is.  We'll see.

Daily Notes 13-14-15

I don't have much to say, except March was difficult. 
 This is 3 months worth of work. I took all the pieces down on Monday to share with a group of M.Ed students at Tyler. They gave me a great response, and I'm feeling good about how this project is progressing.
April is starting. I feel stressed with responsibilities, but I have a high current of creative energy running though me.
