I did it! I successfully created a print per month for the entire year. You can view the collection here. It was so much fun I’m ready to do it again. What’s Your Jam? is my first print of the new season. (Look for a color version coming soon!) I’m collecting empty jars, getting ready for the summer’s bounty of dilly beans, tomatillo salsa, and hot pickled peppers. It’s definitely an inspiring time of year . . .
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!
