Today we visited each other’s studios. All of us have been quietly working without much interaction. It was enjoyable to get a glimpse of each person’s progress. Three of us will be leaving next week, one staying til January 5.

I put on my “gallery hat” this morning and re-organized my walls for the visit. It was a good time to step back and evaluate my progress - and - to decide where to focus during my last week.

I feel like the road sign you see as you approach a village. “Traffic Calming”. All of my senses are starting to slow down and get in rhythm with the landscape. Just like the ocean this week, calmness settling in. I remember this happening last year. Just when you are getting in the groove, time to pack your bags!

Here are pictures of the walls. Feedback from the group - are you sure you are not a sculptor?
