So I haven’t posted since I started working. Working is a lot of work. Dude. It is such a good time, though. I’m teaching four classes at three different community colleges in the area. All of the classes are different and engaging and awesome.
I have been playing a lot of music, in particular at Ev’s or with people associated, but I have a couple of gigs coming up with people from outside of Ev’s.
I recently had a cool experience lately with making piece of art. Back when I was doing my masters, I used a book called Knots and Links by Dale Rolfson. In the front of the book it had a picture of a tree pictured ::Here in the upper left corner::. Further, this is ::Yggdrasil::which is sort of the home of the Universe in Norse Mythology. I have had this picture in my head for a while and doodled variations on homework assignments and stuff, but my idea for a larger piece crystallized in stages for me. I saw a piece of art on wood that used a knot in the surface as the moon, with simple paintings of trees below. So I used a piece of wood, covered it with painters tape, drew the tree onto the tape, then used a razor blade to cut out the negative space. Then I spray painted the background.
