I've had the studio to myself a lot over the holidays. And I thrive on time alone. I suppose in the end I do miss my girls, (and trust I can't wait to whip them back into shape when they return next week) but for now I like to simmer around the studio, project to project. Play my Kate Bush on repeat, dance with my reflection in the empty cooler and gorge myself on spiced pecans.


Nea's a pretty good companion for this sort of afternoon. If anyone wanders by and jangles the door to see if we're around she howls like a wolf at the moon. Makes the crazy eyes at strangers peering under the half-rolled up gate.

'at a girl!
toss her a nut, and go back to my tinkering.

DM said...

please tell me it's 'running up that hill' and its as perfectly choreographed as that video!

I agree with Katie about the lovely wintery, alone-time photos. Beautiful enough to make me love winter a little.

it is quite lovely having a studio to oneself for a short while. It is amazing what you can come up with on your own.

Yay, Nea photos.

Hi Sarah,
I wanted to post a comment on your current pic (stunning contrast), but comments have been disabled. I live in Seattle, so have no fear, I won't be expecting a surprise delivery. :) Wanted to tell you how much I love your pictures and your whimsy that you allow us to have a glimpse of. Warm wishes to you & Eric in the New Year!

Every cowgirl needs her spotted dawg.
