Black Friday for an Artist

image

“Black Friday” for me, the fiber artist, and as a busy professor with an official day of from work means true celebration!  And that’s not engaged in the traditional shopping frenzy but focused on my true nature as an artist. 

Today I’m finishing up work on the Redd Tree Series mentioned in previous posts.  I’ll be organizing my studio and taking inventory of supplies.  I’ve just been gifted yarn which needs to be put away and yes, I have freshly cut wood which needs to be prepped.

It will truly be a peaceful day with soft jazz playing in the background.  I’ll have a pot of cinnamon and water brewing to fragrance the air with holiday spiritis.  And, of course, there’s leftover turkey for midday snacking and some of that leftover apple pie.  There will be few phone calls coming in.  Why?  ‘Cause everyone’s out shopping in the madness of “Black Friday”!

Here’s to artists across nation.
Here’s to crochet needles and yarn and the world’s fiber artists as we continue to joyfully and peacefully create!
