New Ingredients

With a mundane life like mine, being the mother of a 2 year old with no place to go, doing different types of drawing on different days, I need to search out new ingredients to spice up my practice on a regular basis. For instance, I pay (yes, pay) a visit to Talas in order to sample new drawing papers. I read salient exhibition catalogs, like the one from MoMA's 1982 retrospective of Louise Bourgeois. I stop at the store for blueberries, cheddar cheese, walnuts, cottage cheese and pumpkin seeds, for food is always a muse. Then I make coffee (same old chock full o'nuts), look at other blogs for inspirations and start planning new projects!
