I'm back and almost unpacked from Nantucket. I didn't bring my laptop with me, so I'm a little out of touch. I can't seem to manage to type full sentences on an ipad or iphone like everyone else - I need two handed typing - long live the home row - so I tend to forgo sending emails. Plus my phone hates me - as in auto spell-check mocks me. Recent proof of the playful mind of my iphone while messaging - "I nipped it in the nimbus," - not what I was going for at all but it does seem to have a certain symbolism to it.
Nantucket in Review; On Wednesday I arrived in Nantucket to teach at the Artists Association of Nantucket - https://www.nantucketarts.org the AAN recently redesigned a building on Amelia Drive. The building houses several classroom studios, private studios, a print room, clay room, gallery and an artist's residence. The center is hosting a ton of painting, drawing and printmaking classes. Along with lectures and talks - such a valuable resource.
I'm off to Nantucket today to teach my last two-day workshop of the summer. In Other News; Brie the dog got a life jacket. Much to her fluffy dismay she's learning how to kayak this summer - or rather how to sit in the boat and not tip it over - hence her own personal flotation device.
I taught my last digital illustration class yesterday, so my summer break has officially begun! Of course I celebrated by kayaking and by walking Brie the dog. Brie wanted no part of the festivities and had a tantrum halfway through our walk. She threw herself on the ground, flipped over on her back and stuck her feet straight up in the air. There's no budging my furry friend from this position - so I waited. . . and waited. . . this episode lasted long enough for a Good Samaritan to pass by and ask if my seemingly unresponsive animal needed medical attention.
