Bank time


Was sorting through receipts in my wallet to submit expenses for my class (we need to build sock puppets and props). In my search, I discovered that I've accumulated seven cheques. Figured I should deposit them while running around buying more sock puppet socks.

Documenting with light

 Did some documenting of a couple of Judy Anderson's works at the Dunlop this morning. Light is strange there and difficult to get it even, so I did everything in time exposures. 

I compiled the first full draft of the script for this term's puppet project (Gumshoe) today. 69 pages. 

This evening William wrote to say he wanted to talk. Bit homesick I think. We tried to zoom but that was rough. Long phone conversation.

Frans at Slate Gallery

Amazing exhibition with Frans and his metal miniatures at Slate today. 
My allergies seriously triggered from some plant inside the gallery so I snuck out and ended up having a great chat with Mooky who was just arriving, and with Frans who was having a smoke.

Painting with Lori

 My sister was away for the past three classes but is back this week to paint. I did this polaroid from Gertrud's garage - I believe from her sister's estate.

Chrystene teaching workshop

Chrystene did a great puppet workshop for my class over zoom today. In included her personal history, a history of many types of puppets, some tips about how puppets move, and an exercise in making a puppet. Later I went cloth shopping and got some patterned cloth and some fun fur hair. Prices have really gone up.

Should I paint

 Very busy teaching this week, but if I have time it would be great to paint William's room while he's away. Figured I better document where stuff goes.
