i spent some of the day helping a friend move... and i am excited to spend the afternoon painting ~ it seems like a year since i had a few hours alone
I have spent the last week up to my neck in trumpets. I have been eating, sleeping and dreaming trumpets. Learning about trumpets, listening to trumpets, eating dinner with trumpet players... and just when that's all done... drinking drinks with trumpet players and listening to them jam at The Dakota. Then I crawl off to bed... barely... sleep 4 hours, wake up and do it all over again. It's been crazy. And awesome. I love music. All of it. I love people that make music. Instruments. Recording. Funny stories from the road. Trumpet jokes. Losing my mind over too much sound... having a headache and then doing it all over again. I really do. I would love it just as much if it were a guitar convention or a drum convention or a clarinet convention. People who are crazy about their music are my favorites. I understand obsession... and this conference is only fun to people who are really obsessed a about trumpets. I fit right in... and I don't. I feel lucky to be a part of it for another year. Like I said last night to a table full of trumpet geeks. I love music nerds. They all smiled really big... keep it up... nerds are cool.
I did photography and video the whole conference... but not so much arty stuff like I usually do. Here are a few I snuck in for my own pleasure.
i snapped a few fun photos before all hell broke loose last night
i worked all weekend. i have a big conference coming up and it's crazy.
it's going to be lots of fun... but there hasn't been much time for arting this past week.
or art a whirling.
once this week is over i am going to sleep for a year. i am in need of a day on a sunny beach somewhere. not just because of work stuff. i need a mental reset for so many reasons- i have forgotten what they all are. i painted saturday and sunday a little. the date has been set for my next opening @ studio: 204 - Friday, June 3rd 7-10 -
i had a fun time friday night- an old friend played a last minute show at palmers and i had a chance to see him play. serendipity. it was just what i needed.
here's what i worked on this week, when i wasn't working on working.
it's been one of those months... there's not much else to say about it.tonight i have a commission to work on- then i am going to play. i see stormy clouds brewing in the distance. when the weather is like this, i wake up around 5:30... my bed smacks right up against a window... and i can't help open my eyes when the sun comes up. excited to paint tonight... time for dancing too... it's been too long
it's been a really long week... and i guess i don't really want to talk about it... i would just love to relax a little... this is my favorite relaxing song...
