. . . not really . . . this last week was busy with out-of-the-studio tasks as well as a lot of time spent sifting through photos and scraps of paper with ideas scribbled out, planning work for the next two months. Some special events coming up this fall require thoughtful contemplation, so I've been working on compositional ideas for those new works this past week. Should be back at the board shortly and hope to post things as they progress. Sometimes it's nice to have a sort of assembly line of sketched out ideas ready to go, one after the other, when on a time-line deadline (work to be accomplished before August 1).
