I like dance experiments. And I have a great group of dancers this semester who are willing to try the crazy things I throw at them. 
We did a quick set of movement to test out the emotional range of it. They learned this like 10 minutes beforehand.

I’d never had a caramel apple before! 
Hubs and I went up to apple country for the day saw the first signs of autumn. It was a good break from my crazy schedule. 
Do you like caramel apples?

Dance improvisation can be therapeutic. Yesterday I had use of the studio to work. After a long 6 day week of teaching and learning choreography, it was good to just move without direction. 
What are some of your personal therapies? .

This is a #gouachepainting I did for my Illustration class. Based on my poem “Things to do around the mansion”

My rehearsal went well. Some curious things happened. But that’s what I get for experimenting. .

This is coming along VERY slowly. My schedule is so incredibly busy... but tonight I get to paint. Yes, it’s homework, but it’s still painting. 
Does anyone have tips for how to use Gouache Paint? .

“Instead of coming up with choreography and drilling into my dancers, like before, I’m coming at it from a “workshop” direction. 
I’m excited to see the vastly different material my duets are coming up with. All with the same directives and guidance. “

Just a mommy talking to her baby.

I think this is the first non-dance outfit I’ve worn in probably two weeks... I can’t remember. 
Are you ready for autumn, or do you prefer this prolonged summer weather? .

I like to work in series. I like to work with silhouette. I like it when an image or a chapter can stand alone as it’s own story, but when seen together as a whole book. The scene becomes more clear. .

Nature and s...tuff. Trees are nice. Until you’re covered with sap and bugs. ... Aw, who am I kidding. I love trees. 
What kind of tree is this behind me?.

I made a bookmark! 
My mom picked out the colors and said a thing about wanting to mark several pages at once. It turned out pretty well, for my third bracelet style attempt. 
Would anyone want something like this? Or a bracelet/anklet?
