Yearly Archives: 2016

I didn’t want to leave you hanging after yesterday’s post. If you want something more specific for art and activism, I recommend checking out The Center For Artistic Activism. They have webinars and podcasts (although they haven’t done one in awhile. I have no room to judge).  They are a […]

What’s Next?

The past few weeks I’ve had one injury after another. It’s been a bit ridiculous. The culmination was a completely numb, yet extremely painful left hand. It’s surprisingly hard for other people to understand the seriousness of an artist unable to use her dominant hand. Everyone seemed to think it […]

Pain, Pain, Go Away

Life has been kicking my butt this month. My sciatica decided to cripple me for a good two weeks, then I had the worst migraine of my life. Yuck! Now, if I had been on top of things, ya’ll wouldn’t have noticed a single glitch, but I’m not on top […]

Have More Art Than Wall Space?

Yet Another Brief Update.
