I thrive on routine. I need change. This week began with routine. My days are divided into studio days and business days. When I am in the studio the world disappears and I immerse myself in the routine of my current artwork. As you can see Bat Sh*t Crazy is coming along. I finished the church of 130 pieces and made a few more townhouses, too. The Ukrainian village is taking shape.
I could happily stick to my routine because that is my safe haven, my place of comfort. So, I push myself out into the wide world to remove myself from my isolated rut and experience life outside the studio. This weekend I will be attending SAQA‘s virtual conference: Bridging the Gulf: Fabric to Fine Art. Do check out this fabulous video featuring what is on offer at the conference. Amazing, right?
You do have to be a SAQA member and pay the registration fee to attend the conference. However, you don’t have to be a SAQA member to view the more than 325 matted 4.5″ x 6.5″ fiber artworks available to bid on in SAQA’s annual Spotlight Auction. Nothing routine about the work on offer.
I will be oscillating between routine and change all next week as I squeeze some routine in the studio and then checkout the midweek conference events.
I am linking up with:
- Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Fridays
- 2022 Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC)
- Thank Goodness It’s Finished Friday (TGIFF)
Enjoy the shake-up of your routine! I enjoy a good shake up!
Yes, nothing like a good shake up, helps me both appreciate my routine and expand upon it.
Hi Gwyned! Hope to “run into you” at the conference. I’ve decided to pace myself so may delay viewing some sessions till I can see the recordings. But…next year (God willing!) Toronto!! Meanwhile, yes…routines are a Good Thing.
My plan is to attend as much of the conference as I can, including the Cocktails and Conversations breakout rooms. With so many people in attendance (over 450 I believe) landing in the same breakout room has poor odds. It would be fun if that happens.
I am planning on attending the conference in Toronto. The LOC (local/regional committee) is already busy planning great things. Being the extreme early bird that I am my favorite way to visit at the conference is over breakfast. I’m usually the first to arrive in the dining room and one of the last to leave. There is always room at the table. Care to join me?
Much as I thrive on my routine, I am enjoying the current break.
