Before I came to the Vermont Studio Center, I had planned to blog frequently - even daily. Oh, I had plans. What I hadn't anticipated was the hot, humid east coast weather. Brutal!
Consequently I haven't been sleeping well, averaging about two hours per night. There is no a/c in our rustic accommodations other than electric fans. So my productivity has been lower than expected. My mood restless, irritable and discontent.
Good news came in the form of Chelsea, our figure model, who announced on Monday that a cold front was moving into Vermont. Hallelujah! On Monday night, it poured and poured and poured and we cooled by about 20 degrees. I was able to sleep. Soundly. A full eight hours and believe me, sleep makes all the difference.
I leave you now with images from Bread and Puppet, a local theater group founded by Peter Schumann here in Vermont that we visited last Friday.
The papier-mâché puppets are stored in a giant barn, the tour is self guided and the Friday puppet performance is not to be missed.
And with that I'm off to bed - good night.
