Writing at home


 I have been writing a book chapter for the past week. I'm nearly at the end of my first draft. Monday is usually a good day for this sort of thing, able to mostly stay home. Cat was particularly loud all day. William also has multiple deadlines this week so that proved to be a distraction to me.

Paint can


 Painted the tin that contained a jigsaw puzzle that Margaret bought me for Christmas.

Dunlop opening at Sherwood with Serena Lee


 Attended talk by Serena Lee at Sherwood. William had a studio visit with her yesterday but he had booked time with his friends this afternoon and didn't end up making it. Got William a new GPS this morning in hopes that he would make it here on his own but he got caught up and didn't make it after all. Talk was okay but I'm not sure I connected with it strongly. The most profound point was the underlying conceptual supposition that we should all be required to learn a second, randomly selected language. Visually, the work is made up of crude sculptures (made of salt clay) and equally crude 3D scanned or 3D generated images.

Coffee with mom

Took mom to Cafe Francais on Victoria Avenue. Had really nice lemon cake.

Just a day

 I didn't take any photographs today. I didn't do much to blog about either. We watched "The Marvels" which dropped today onto Disney. Not great, but I really like the Ms Marvel actress and the set up with her family. Reminiscent of the newest live action fan-boy Spiderman. William had lots of homework. My foot was sore in the morning and my only on campus meeting was canceled shortly after I arrive there so I spent the day working at home and trying to be quiet so that William could also work. Oddly normal day.

Studio with students

 

Did safety and procedure workshops in the studio today. There was a mishap when a student dropped a heavy object on their foot, which I'm really upset about. In the end, they did some great lighting and experimentation. All but one had a good time.
