Study 37: Art Resolutions-Scenes from the Studio

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year. Welcome to Study 37.

Another 2″ of snow added to Sunday’s 6 have tucked Mt. Muchmore in a forelorn detachment from the world. Morning adds to the potion. The plows have not been through in a while and, in the last half hour, only one car has ventured through the steep road below. This morning has all the hallmarks of a school snow day but none of the merits. I will telework if the roads are too hazardous, and so, I had my 5:45-6:30 intermission from real life to meditate and create.

I thought of my beautiful Japanese chocolate pot bought with my college boyfriend long ago at a lawn auction when deals could still be had. The pot is filled with lacquered chopsticks –another remnant from times gone by. Crowded in among coffee mugs of art markers and baskets of brushes and art papers, the containers are memories that have come to life again through the morning study.
