Today I will be spending some quiet time with my ‘to do list’. It’s not very long (I’m not a great list maker) but basically goes something like this
Check and pack tools and equipment for tomorrow’s class
Write application for online directory
Tomorrow I am teaching a class making little silver pendants using Art Clay Silver at the wonderful Joe Cornish Gallery over in Northallerton in North Yorkshire. We will be making tiny little reverse prints then converting them into pretty pieces of jewellery. I think there is still a place left if you fancy a go at this, just contact the gallery (I understand there will be cake).
Anyway, off to get started.
See you later!
… And later …
Well the tools, materials, lesson plan, class notes are all safely packed into the car ready for an early start in the morning. As for that application, on reflection I realise I want to finish a couple of new designs and photograph them to include. It is always a bit of a dilemma for me knowing what to include. Often these applications arise months before an event and in the intervening period I find I have produced a different kind of work altogether. At the moment I am working on a series of small beach inspired pieces of jewellery called “pebble, ripple, splash” and I think it would be good to enamel and finish them. That does mean scheduling myself a couple of days of enamelling next week and probably a day for photography.
And just to bring me back to the quiet thought about completing one task at a time a friend posted a link to this blog on taking care of the present moment . Very timely and thanks !
