Things are getting more and more eccentric at Casa de la Swain. Changing styles in my textile work, falling in love again with painting and photography...and then there is the ever illusive quest for continuing creativity through working with Eric Maisel. Still on the road teaching, posting now at the Ragged Cloth Cafe and taking the pledge to keep handmaiden up to date.

Addendum to Creativity Question

This all comes from when I was taking some graduate level art amazing fiber artist as head of the department. I have mentioned this before in some past post but thought I would re-post as food for thought: "If you can't talk about your work at all, there is something wrong with you. If you have to explain the work too much, there is something wrong with the work."

Totally Zen concept....that grea yin and yang balance. Thought it might help any of you who are struggling with this idea of visual to verbal.

Rest of my week: Fly to San Antonio tomorrow to do art talk as invitation artist...see why you have to be able to talk about the work, leaving at 2 p.m.; returning at 9 p.m. Talk about your whirwind trips. One day off Friday, and then off on the 17th to Long Island Quilter's back on the 20th. Thankfully home until market. Ain't this too glamorous?

You have just about enough time to catch your breath before you are off again. Sounds like fun, but a little exhausting. Eat your Wheaties!
