I've started doing some very small scale catering (groups of twenty max) and have been asked to do something for next weekend. With our Texas weather, it will probably be all cold, except perhaps for the bread and appetizer. Tomato and watermelon salad with maple bourbon turkey breast. Bruchetta and individual angel food cakes for dessert. At this point I want to make money, but satisfaction and references are my primary goal.
My photographs are not at the level I would hope. I take photos for this blog, for my saleable listings, for lots of reasons. It's not the camera-I have a 5x zoom 14 pixel toy. It is, as the say, the operator. I've started experimenting (I'm in the process of making a large light box-inside which I will photo small items. I think I need even more help. I've increased my school course level to 12 hours (I know, I know). We'll see how things progress. If four art classes are too much, I promise I will hit the withdraw button, honestly. For now, I'll be studying ceramics, printmaking, and jewelry metals along with digital photography one. Think that added to my schedule will keep me busy? Me too.
As an artist, I am extremly visual (I realize that sounds like a double negative or some such). I am also illogical. When it comes to sewing or quilting, most folks choose the pattern and then pick and choose the fabric and quilting pattern. I do just the opposite. I pick the fabric or art quilt materials and create around them. I got an advance sample of this group of fabrics (which comes in a wide color range, only some are shown) in February. When my sister saw them she fell in love. I've been trying to decide what to do with them. I think I've decided-meaning these are next on the chopping block
I went to church this evening in the hope that the dogs will wake up my son insead of myself at six thirty am-I may not have children getting me out of bed, but the four legged beasts still manage. Your kids grow up, you get rid of the babysitters, but you still have to come home and take care of the dogs. Such is life.
What is your weekend like?
