What can I say? My Muse has a mind of her own.
Artifact: an object made by a human being.
Artgurl: a human being who makes art.
A sad reality, worldwide pandemics and social distancing are good for just two types of creatures: dogs and artists.
The former are currently enjoying multiple daily walks, unlimited treats which, unlike toilet paper, can still be found on the grocery store shelves, and, desperate for interaction, their sheltering-at -home parents now fully appreciate the moniker "man's best friend".
Artists, as a general rule, do well with social-distancing. Solitude, for most of us, is a necessary component for creativity. Sure, artists can be social creatures but when inspiration (our Muse) smacks us upside the head, we prefer hunkering down.
Speaking for myself, social distancing has become an opportunity to tackle some back-burner projects.(All artists have them.) First, I started sewing again.
Then I did appliqué. Very handy for covering up stains and moth holes, by the way.
That got me through my first week of social distancing.
Since then I've been working my way through decades of back-burner projects. I'll be posting those "artifacts" on Instagram and Facebook under the hashtag #artgurlartifacts. As you hunker down, both for the protection of yourself and others, I invite you to follow along.
And please, STAY WELL!
