A Day In The Life of an Artist

Friday, May 18, 2012

6:27 radio alarm rings (love to stay in bed as long as I can) stay until I hear the weather
shower (hot, hot, hot, with my favorite Thymes Eucalyptus Body Wash)
dilemma on something special to wear for a talk (settle on Ikat top from Panache and knit black jeans)

6:45 half glass of grapefruit juice (with vitamin, calcium, flaxseed oil, cranberry extract, pravastatin)
bowl of Trader Joe’s shredded wheat with raisins and coffee

7:15 answer emails- finish up bubbe blog (started yesterday so I could easily finish in the morning) and post

9:00 pack up samples (On The Edge– a Quilt National reject and Bubbe and Zadie-easily carried French Knot piece) and computer (I use a MacBook Air) for talk

9:15 hand appliqué on piece for Leslie and Michele (my mercenary work)

10:15 drive to Swissvale

11:00 PowerPoint presentation (Quilts With Meaning and Memory) for Angel’s Place staff in service

12:15 drive to People’s to meet Steve for Indian buffet lunch (Yummy, lots of food. When we eat here we skip dinner!)

1:30 drive home-change clothes (basic yoga pants and t-shirt) and walk to American Eagle Outfitters

2:15 install one quilt as part of AAP show- Mango smoothie complements of Cory

4:00 walk back to loft- stop at GoodWill (looking for a container for my personal stash of schmattas) and leave without a purchase

4:45 watch IronLady on-demand with Steve over popcorn and grapefruit slices

7:00 drive to Izzy’s for on-line shopping while Steve services her porch planters

9:00 home-disappointed with special on PBS (I was planning to see another of the series Crafts in America) and instead pinterest on the computer

10:15 bedtime

Pittsburgh-based fiber artist, Louise Silk, creates art that combines aesthetics and functionality with meaning and memories. From the influence of a 1972 MS Magazine article to the current SILKDENIM label, her quilt experiences culminate in a display of her particular capacity to use her patchwork skills to piece together just about anything into an aesthetic meaningful whole.
