I finally started posting in my 1000 Markets Blog. You can read today's post here. The photo of the sugilite does not do it justice - the reflection of the sky prevents you from seeing what it really looks like.
After several brief bursts of typing interspersed with long periods of procrastination, I have finally finished my Artist's Statement! I've posted it at the DaisyCat Jewelry blog. Even if I don't get around to cleaning off the kitchen table today, at least I've accomplished this!
From a week of temps in the 90's to a week of rain and the 70's! My tomatoes are going to be very confused :( I'm trying to rescue as many from blight/blossom-end-rot as I can. The cucumbers are a bust this year. On the other hand, the eggplants and pole beans are doing brilliantly!
Only a few more days til school starts and I can get back in the studio and really get some work done! I figure I'll give myself about two weeks of production time, then I'll spend a day taking pictures of everything. I hate these all-day shoots, but I really need more than one photo of certain items. I also want the props in my earring photos to match, so this gives me the chance to re-shoot all of them at the same time. We'll see if it makes a difference!
...so I've gone ahead and done it. Of course I'm doing it 15 minutes before my daughter goes to bed, with the cat on my keyboard, so this will necessarily be short. Photos will have to wait until later.
I needed to think of a name for my blog - I realized this fits my life perfectly!
