070: Summer Projects

Today’s podcast is all about The 100 Day Project, classes I’m teaching, and visiting NYC (Fancy Food Show, YouTube Space, MoMA and getting my hair cut).  Mom picked out the photos and links to go with this week’s podcast.

A preview of my visit to MoMA (more photos on the blog next week):

You can also get a peek at those events in this week’s vlog:

051: Attitude (Episode #51)

 

I’m delighted to bring you another episode of the Adventures in Arting Podcast!  Today’s episode covers a lot of ground.  I titled it “Attitude” because I was trying to think how to capture all the disparate strands of our conversation and in the end I decided that they all boiled down to attitude.  Much like yesterday’s blog post — which we discuss on today’s podcast and I share some reader comments — attitude is one of the determining factors to contentment with what you create and even who you are.

Here are two links to things we discussed:

Mary Delany — I am planning to do a full blog post about her, but here’s one photo of her work in the meantime:
