Well, here we are again. I can’t say that I’ve missed you. How should I know if I have missed you or not? I don’t even know if anyone is even reading this. Ahhh okay I missed ya 😉 you caught me. Hey who wants a grilled cheese? I could really go for a grilled cheese right now. I haven’t had one of those in a REALLY long time. Mmmmmm with a nice bowl of romaine lettuce and ranch dressing. Ugh so good. The ranch after taste (vile as it can be at times) gives the grilled cheese bites a garlic bread taste and oh.my.god. heavenly! With a tall glass of cold chocolate milk. Hey Shannon, why is it that you can never stick to that weight loss goal…? Shut up.
It’ll probably be a short when tonight fellas. I don’t feel the inspiration boiling out of my fingertips. I suppose that’s no excuse, but that depends on who you ask.
I don’t really have a particular style or expectation to uphold week to week. Noel and Marc have their own distinct styles. I cannot comment on our most recent member Stephanie regarding this subject for obvious reasons. I suppose it’s because I haven’t exactly grown into myself yet. I’m still growing out my roots and seeing where they plant themselves. Maybe you will have the privilege to see me do that.
I’ve been very water based in my art classes lately. My current 3D Design endeavor is the found objects project. I am going to produce a series of underwater sculptures using tupperware, buttons, popsicle sticks, old jewelry, pins, some ceramic beads I made and other miscellaneous items. Oh, and of course water. I’m hoping it turns out well and inspires me to create the true project I have in mind. It will be pretty damn expensive and will require a lot of planning, but I expect to finish it by the time I die. I am going to keep it a secret because I hope to keep it my own until I am satisfied with the result.
My on-going Basic Ceramics project is two tentacles intertwining. The disappointing thing about them is that they dried too quickly and one of the tentacles doesn’t lay flush against the floor. I suppose I can try to grind it down to get them at an even height, but that could take a lot of effort and risk. I will have to make difficult decisions.
Maybe I have ventured into this water motif because water is so uncertain and unplanned. I like to be certain and plan all the time. Maybe this is my mind’s way of telling me to let loose and let things happen as they may. I hope I can. I need to relax myself more often. I can only blame myself for allowing things to stress me out as much as I do. Relax, Shannon. Relax.
