Pondering, by Everglades artist Jo-Ann Sanborn
I'll be pondering for a while. You'll hear from me now and again but without the regularity of the first 600 posts!
Some larger paintings are calling to me, and I need to work on them without the distraction of the daily paintings. There's another project I'm working on that will be a surprise. As always, I'm doing some art community work, this time working to sustain the future of Marco Island's Art Center. Let me know if you want to help.
I'll be teaching in the fall and again in 2012. A Method for Critique will be information that you can use in reviewing your own work or should you be jurying. We'll cover some principals of art, and when they work and when they don't. Bet there'll be some great discussion there! You can see the dates/times on my website, under events, so sign up early.
I love my FASO website, but it needs to be updated and I need the time for that. I need to consolodate my emails, spend some time on my email list, and regroup. Decide what's important to others, and what I can let go.
Combined with family responsibilities, I'm not going to be sitting around in fuzzy slippers eating bon-bons, although I'd love to do that, for maybe an hour some time.
And I'll be back, once I figure out if I'm writing for myself, my collectors, my artist friends, the arts community or any/everyone, and what's the best outlet for connecting and sharing information.
In the meantime, you can "like" Sanborn Everglades Art on Facebook or connect with me on Twitter (twitter.com/jsanborn) or add me to one of your circles in Google+ Let's keep in touch. Otherwise, I'll miss you!
