We all need a creative boost now and then. The cold, gray skies, unwashed dishes and mass shootings get me down. I know (for me) the only sane response is to make some art. But sometimes it’s hard –I feel like I’m too busy, I’m not good enough, it’s too late, there’s too much *real* work to be done in the world. Whenever I need to short circuit my self-saboteur, I look to my toolkit of creative inspiration.
Here’s my latest print. I also did a version printed in black, but I like this one better because the colors make me happy. I can’t help myself.
I just finished teaching a three week class on mathematics and sustainability. It was this amazing experience where I felt fully integrated: math, art, environmentalism—all these different parts of me were all there. Here are some samples of my students’ work.
Here is my latest vision board/collage about integrating my artistic and mathematical lives. Enjoy!
I’m preparing to teach a class on sustainability and mathematics this January–it’s one of my favorite topics because it’s so personally meaningful and the math is really interesting.
It’s High Summer and there’s been a lot of time for both art and math (and less time for being online!) These are two versions of a recently completed Swiss Chard print, before and after adding watercolor. I’m finding lots of inspiration in our CSA this summer from Sweetland Farm.
