Where I've been spending my time (part I)

The print shop and litho stones

Grad school is wonderful, and frustrating, and exhausting all at the same time. I have been spending 12-14 hours a day in the studio several days a week. I'm very much in the experimental and exploratory stages of work-- nothing is solid or certain. I have to constantly remind myself to play right now, and worry about the why later.

I've been spending a lot of my time in the print shop, and most specifically doing lithography in depth for the first time. I always feel at home in the shop-- the smell of the ink, the weight of the paper, the methodical process, and the thrill of pulling a print off the plate. 

(I have several prints in the works that I'll share soon...)
