"What did you do as a child that created timelessness, that made you forget time? There lies the myth to live by" -Joseph Campbell
A number of years ago I was asked this question in a creativity workshop. My immediate thought was of the children's program at Chicago's Art Institute. The bright high ceilinged rooms we worked in, touring the African collection and then creating papier mache versions of what we had seen. I still remember the deep bright red I painted my mask and all of the colorful tissue paper streamers that represented straw hair.
I recently went to my first drawing class in many years; Drawing From Life. The room was high ceilinged with papier mache masks ringing the room. How much of an omen is that?
I've been busy getting the house ready to sell. It's such an exciting time!
Making lamp shades...
Arranging books and artwork...
Constant cleaning, arrggghhh.
Anybody want to buy a house?
