How true this Yiddish proverb is at times. I have lost almost an entire year to health and other issues. I have not created anything of note since March. Halloween, my most favorite of holidays, passed with me crouched behind locked doors, the porch light dark, only a Halloween welcome mat and a lone, un-carved pumpkin evidence of celebration. The bags of candy, bought in wishful enthusiasm, traveled to work with me November 1.
I did, however, manage to make the above Bat Droppings in the days leading up to Halloween. Unfortunately, my new studio is only a half-realized effort down in the new basement, so real work likely won’t start until December.
With luck, Chaos will ignore me for a time, and let me find the creative groove again.
I hope you all had a spooky Halloween and felt the true chilly warmth of the season!
