day nine...


100 ideas by keri smith::number seven:
Expose yourself to a new artist, (go to a gallery, or in a book.) Write about what moves you about it.


i could not leave the house today
because ten was home with a sore belly...
{although not as sore as let on this morning...
it got better awfully quick...}

so i could not go to a gallery...
but i visited one online instead.

{not to mention, galleries are in
very short supply
in my small town...}

so instead,
i cracked a can of diet coke
and settled in at the computer...
put on some music
and visited this studio...
i love everything about this guy's work...
it is whimsical and detailed...
it's dark and imaginative and fun
and interpretative...
it makes me stop and wonder
what he was thinking at the time
and how was that made
and marvel at the emotions
that he can convey...

and it makes me want to get up off my chair,
push myself away from the computer,
go upstairs and make something....
get my hands dirty...
make a mess...
but do something
and stop daydreaming about it...

sidenotes::

my writing down the bones book came in today!!
i haven't even taken it out of the bag yet
because i am a hoarder...
i need to hold onto it
until the right moment...

i pushed myself out of my comfort zone tonight
and went to a training center
to take photos of people training for MMA
{mixed martial arts}...
a girl emailed me and asked if i would be
interested and since this is my year of
saying yes,
i said yes...
and now we are thinking that they will
get me a media pass to try shooting for a
cage match that they will be doing...
and doing some profile shots for them...
i'm excited...and nervous...
but this is a good thing.

I love that artist too... I expect we have similar tastes in thing. What were you listening to?

MMA... ah, reminds me I wanted to ask if I could take photos of one of the classes... maybe when the boy goes back ...

Hope your monkey feels better.
