Input Wanted!



Okay. Is there anybody out there? Mayday mayday! I am curious as to what, YOU, the person reading this blog, wants. Besides announcements. There’s something slightly off-putting about that. It feels immodest and boastful. Yeah--I know, those of you who know me will be shocked to hear I have some restraint in the area of “self indulgent crowing” but its true.

So whatchoo want? More pictures? Work in progress (that's what the image above is.) Some ranting and raving about the meaning of life and art? FOR EXAMPLE: yesterday, perhaps on the toilet, or the elliptical trainer at the gym or some other mind transporting experience, I had the thought that “Painting wasn’t killed dead forever by...the invention of the camera...or the rebellion of the Salon De Refusee or the separation of church and state or the whatever...painting was made instantly obsolete when the first alphabet was invented. Blame it on Linear B!” More of that type of pseudo philosophical musing?

Please let me know what you would like to see more of in this blog by adding a comment. And if there are no comments I shall have to assume I am talking to myself...how embarrassing!

I would like to see a completed pic of the crocodile or alligator piece.

Show us a special New Years 2009 party scene for sure!!

I'd like to see more fun daily images of getting around town and maybe the tracks and paths you take to get to wherever you are going! And keep going with all you are putting up because it's all great to read and think about with you.

I'm excited about these classes and may just make that time and money to take one.

I've only just discovered your astonishing work secondhand, via your book and here on the net. I'm in England with no opportunities to travel. Are there any plans to show your work over here?

I have come to glasswork late after 20 years of digital work - all the sitting broke my health. I discovered glass years ago but it does not mix well with children,so the screen was my substitute medium. No tiny feet around the place now. All hail the empty nest!

You said somewhere that your creative sense is unleashed by the restrictions of technique - the more mind-blowingly dull and repetitive the better. Or words to that effect. I have similar masochistic tendencies and am fascinated by the descriptions I've read so far of the techniques you use. I'm too far away to come to a workshop, obviously. Is there any hope of us delving more deeply into your alchemical secrets via this blog?

I've got a new idea! You are right in some respects about every day life being a bit boring,,,I've kept a diary since 2nd grade and that idea sprouted from my diary recording which I am so fond of.
Since we are teachers and love to have fun why don't we play an interactive computer design sorta game when time allows. Maybe start us off with words and tell us create something, somehow, somewhere! It can be stupid! Just so it is interactive with your readers and followers.

I read somewhere that music is really important to you. Perhaps you could tell us what you're listening to every now and then?

Then we'll be able to listen to those songs as we're filing away and do masterpieces too...

Ranting and raving is good and a big heap of demos to boot.

What is the most layers you have done in a piece?

Hey Judith. I just went to the Site Santa Fe lecture and really wanted to talk to you but so did so many others. I saw your work at the Snydermans 16 years ago and it has stayed with me this whole time. I really can only say that about a few other artists. You are really amazing! I live in Santa Fe but grew up in Philly(12th n Rodman) Your work is so beautiful and has such story at the same time. Keep it up. You are SO good!!!
