long exposures tonight. some of them almost 10 seconds. tom playing guitar, the movement is non-stop. the room glows. i'm on the sofa under a quilt with my legs stretched out along edgar's belly. and stella won't leave us, surfing on my legs as i move. tom is finding great songs in his head. u2. madonna. kermit the frog. phish. the grateful dead. ryan adams. a perfect little night of songs. we ordered pizza and tried to watch a movie, but it was a guitar and camera sort of night. it wouldn't be denied.
i worked on my french painter's smock in the studio today. since i drew it freehand on butcher's paper, my first try needs a bit of tweaking. it's a little too much like the child's version....a bit shapeless and not fitted enough. but my next version may be the right one. and i'm already imaging different beautiful versions.
