September Stuff

Greetings fellow creative cronies!!!

Here we are falling into October, wow!  Things have been busy enough at the clay studio that I have not taken any time to paint or draw (yet)…however I have been doing clay projects for a few commissions we have taken on.  One commission we may do is creating racing pigeon nest bowls.  Apparently prize racing pigeons are paired and the chicks go for $1500 a piece!  And nobody in the US is making these unglazed bowls, there is a place in the country where you can go pick them up, they won’t ship them.  Very strange business I am in!   Tomorrow we are hosting Dave Beaty again, teaching watercolor, I am very much looking forward to learning from him in a medium I am very unfamiliar with.  Including a photo of some in progress bowls for a commission including some intended for family heirlooms which makes me feel good.

I have been working on songs, and recording, doing a little here and there and getting to know some new software and decide which song or songs to record, and how. Lots of decisions to make and ear-practice to get to where I feel remotely capable!  The Monday Mash is going on Week 23 I believe this week, I am having the best fun arranging my set and executing the ‘show’.   Thanks to any of you who are able to view it!!   One more photo, from my early morning walk yesterday, really pretty weather this time of year here.

Here is hoping everyone is well and happy, enjoy every moment its really all we have, I am savoring this moment sharing my world with you all and it is a blessing I am very grateful for.  Please comment and share if you feel so compelled and soon new music  and art will be heading your way from an open heart!!

Hugs to all,

Mishy

 

 

 

 

Happy Groundhog’s Day

Good Morning Friends!

I intend to establish a regular posting pattern, most likely on Monday mornings, but I did not want to wait another day to begin so here I am on a Thursday….I may end up doing some extras if I get excited about something so maybe a good way to start regular blogging? Who knows but here I am !

I am having so much fun writing new songs this month, at a cool website I finally feel confident enough to partake of, well worth taking a look if you have a hankering to write songs at all-  http://fawm.org

One is up on soundcloud, I wrote it, recorded and uploaded it in an hour and ten minutes for a ‘skirmish’ with the theme “Addiction”-https://soundcloud.com/mishy-katz/skirmish-1a-addiction-overcome-fawm-2017

I was fairly happy with the results, especially considering the time restraints!  It certainly got me going for the FAWM challenge, and I will post more songs during this month.

Also working on clay musical goodies, mostly raku but some salt fired, I will share some of that fun too!

I hope this second day of February treats you well!

Love and Light,

Mishy
