in a week. Kinda nice. An excuse to slow down. Tried to upload photos today into my blog but the computer is too slow. Thanks to all for your comments and support on my process of creating a space to work and being with my mom. Things happen one step at a time, but I want them to happen all at once. Life continually teaches me patience and letting go. To hook up to high speed internet I must first buy a router. Computer shops are all half an hour drive away. So it may take me a few more days to get there.
About 50 wild turkeys are grazing on the field today. I'm thinking of making the drawing and painting of the field a winter project. Depicting it over and over in different ways. I have always loved this field for some reason.
And I have a writing project too. I'm writing a sort of memoir about the 5 men who have had a prominent role in my life. I only have 12 pages so far. The book is divided into "Artist" "Poet" "Madman" "Pilot" "Magician." Once my own computer is set up, I hope to share segments on my blog "Writing a novel."
One last note. I asked Andrea (please see my list of blogs in right hand column to link to Andrea's blog as I can't get the link to work here, grrr) if she knew the German artist Paula Modersohn-Beckerwho painted in the 1920's and died young a few days after giving birth. In this country not many people know about her. Andrea says she is well known in Germany and asked how I knew of her. Many years ago I bought a calendar depicting women's art. One of the paintings was Becker's. I loved it, the quality of the paint, the colors and I love portraits. She painted many self-portraits. Some of herself pregnant. I looked her up through library books, read about her life and own a book of her letters.
