My new blog friend, Kathryn J, over at Colloquies with Kathryn, spoke about how this internet stuff can lead to problems. I agree, so I made a new rule... 30 minutes in my studio before I can write anything on my blog.
So I just spent 30 minutes with paper, pencil and erasure working on something big, well it will be big for this stained glass artist.
This is my favored stage and until the final stage of the process--- it is all downhill in my book.
I have doodled since the beginning of time and now my brain is adapting to the constraints of glass. In my current design something new is happening. It is being created as I play with lines on paper.
what are those other steps as they descend in pleasure after creating the design...
choosing the colors/glass
cutting and grinding the glass
foiling the glass
soldering... now we have hit rock bottom
cleaning the finished project and holding it up to the light.
so this post was to be about how I became a teacher. That is the idea that floated up and apparently floated away, but if I continue to read Kathryn's journey to become a teacher (not my route at all, well maybe we have something in common????). I will be reminded of the blog post that could become, like one of my unfolding mandala designs inside a ten inch diameter circle...
looking at this I want an erasure. It is not quite done yet... what would you erase?
