The day is winter gray. There is a sheen of ice on my car and the trees are dripping with the cold rain that fell overnight. It is the end of January and I am right on track to be getting tired of the grayscale outside. I am craving some saturated color. So I started looking through my archives and found pictures from a day spent in my friend Mary’s basement studio last year. I was intrigued by how organized and colorful everything is, it just invites you to sit down and create something. It also invited me to take pictures to remind me of how fun it can be to be an artist. What other job requires you to look at colored pens, funky scissors, cool handmade paper and an assortment of pliers before you start “working”?
