It's midnight CA time. My cousin and I just closed the studio, LOL. (Ok, I lie. I washed off the turquoise, lapis and jet dust before posting.) I haven't pulled a 8 am to 11:30 pm day in the studio since I was a spry young undergrad. I've been to busy to even take pictures. (Plus we have had a parade of film crews and photographers traipsing through, since metal and fire is visually dramatic. I am loathe to snap off another camera.)

We wrapped up the silver fabrication part of the course. Now we're beginning the lapidary. Mr Tsosie is pushing me beyond my comfort zone. I'm having to stretch, which is good if uncomfortable, LOL. He made me flip my pendant over -- absolutely the right decision aesthetically -- but opposite the way I always do it. I'm having to learn to see differently.

Today's lecture was on muralisim as an embodiment of Gerald Visenor's idea of survivance. A scholar from U of Az discussed how Native artists were using Native images in street art to reclaim the public space.

Chef Bitsoie served wild rice (from Red Lake) and wild mushroom soup, and Navajo corn cake with agave syrup rather than brown sugar. Yummy. The cake brought back some happy memories.
