• working working working ...BREAD... working

    like a busy bee, I am busily creating in my hive ..er.. studio. the piece for the show? almost done. and I will post photos. it's a bit whimsical. forewarned.

    in other 2014 endeavors ...aside from re-establishing a relationship with Real Life... and really that's pretty much an epochal  endeavor. hmmm. is that even a word?!? ... ah! indeed it is!

    ep·och·al  (ĕp′ə-kəl, -ŏk′əl)
    1. Of or characteristic of an epoch.
    2.a. Highly significant or important; momentous: epochal decisions made by Roosevelt and Churchill.
    b. Without parallel: epochal stupidity.
    but. one needs sustenance for such an undertaking. and my second personal challenge is to recreate the Perfect Loaf of Bread. and yes, I have one in mind. it is crusty on the outside. so crusty it spreads itself all over the counter when cutting. and not moist (ahhh! I hate that word)... if left out over night it'll have to be repurposed for croutons. or bread pudding. with a holey texture. to sop up butter (duh!) or jam or peanut butter if you prefer. and crunches satisfactorily when toasted. with TASTE. a bit salty. a bit sour.

    and I am close. oh. so close.

    and I haven't even begun to tell you what's going on in my head. it's kinda full in there at the moment:

    • 5 more assemblages (angels of sorrow, mirth, light, the sea, the north)
    • 3 day workshop
    • 2 BIG paintings
    • plans for RAKs
    • dyeing
    • clothes sewing
    • handsewing/mark making
    • exploration of substrates
    • centre for the arts
    • heading south
     very. very. full.

    1. wow you are busy - try making the perfect bread when you've given up wheat!
      Lucky Don is the bread maker in the pack so he will be experimenting..

      1. ha! been there got that t-shirt (which obviously didn't last forever!) ... I found that it was best to not even try and replicate crusty bread. you can't. and all of the stand-ins are just lack-luster. embrace your gluten-free-ness! :)
