The past week was spent getting my house in order for 2012.
Mopped floors, clean clothes and the new shower curtain smell make me feel quite accomplished! I read a bunch of follow-up information and then â€˜crashedâ€™ a little Monday from the ideas mulling in my brain, the shift in goals from new years resolutions past, and absorbing all the familial energies over the holiday.
I highly recommend Susan Vreelandâ€™sÂ Clara and Mr. Tiffany. It has me perusing Tiffany lamp books to learn more about Clara Driscoll, a nature-loving glass artist.
The Passion of ArtemisiaÂ and The Forest Lover (about Emily Carr) are captivating too.
This of course is spurning more research about other women artists, along with reviewing the art work and science of their subject matter.
Iâ€™m also mulling over a Swallowtail project.
My toner ran out of ink which gives me creative license with the color scheme. Thereâ€™s no way to pass a â€˜whiteâ€™ Tiger SwallowtailÂ off as a Zebra Swallowtail.
Did you have any good holiday reads? What is your research topic du jour?
