Sorry for the lack of a journal last week. It completely slipped my mind!🙇😥

This week was my school's fall break and, of course, I spent it working on my portfolio stuff. There was only one day I didn't go to the studio (it was raining and I HATE walking in the rain, i do like looking at it though 😜). I did let myself wake up when I felt like it, so I got quite a bit of rest.

I manage to work a little on my painting project too! Not a lot but I got a good start.

Today, I managed to get all my stuff glazed!!! It only took 10 1/2 hours...😌😒 I am so tired right now!💤 But it's well worth it! I'm on schedule!!😙I just have to get those puppies fired and arrange them.

Please pray for me! 🙏I'm going to need it. 😊

Didn't do much of anything else. I did manage to catch the transit to Walmart to get some stuff. I'm going to have to go back though. The converter box I bought doesn't work. The techs managed to talk me into getting the wrong one. 😒

I posted this months tip yesterday. Forgot about that too until my calendar reminded me. I hope it was helpful. If you have suggestions, don't hesitate to message me.

That's it for now!

Much Love,
Hema😘❤️

Codex by Hemamal
Codex
My first project in Painting 2. The theme was beauty. I love ancient things/artifacts so to connect my three things together I made all of them in codex format. Here is a (left to right): a peach pit necklace, a (made-up) purification ritual, and a game cartridge motherboard.

This is a photo of my painting studio I took for Intro to Photography. I love it so much!

Stress! Not the, 'I can't do this' kind but the 'I have so much to do' kind.

I got my first batch of talismans and totems out of the kiln Saturday (pics to come). I did the actual firing on Friday and, since I had to be there for 6 hours, I got cranking on my white talismans and totems cut out. I was  in the studio just shy of 12 hours! It wouldn't have taken so much time if the clay was dry instead of soaked. I'm hoping to get those done and fired during the break. Then glaze them and fire them, hopefully, in one foul swoop.

I also got some research done and a little planning. I still have quite a bit to do. I got the skeleton of my presentation worked out. It'll be about 12 slides and I set a date to take pics of my final projects.

I also managed to get my other two boxes built and ready for me to paint. I FINALLY have a concept, rough sketch, to get behind. I'm pretty much combining my original idea (creating an atmosphere) with the focus of a particular set of tools, showing their evolution. Now I just need to visualize the final image.

Everything else pretty routine, except I was super tried all week. Hopefully that won't be the tea reoccurring theme for this week. Changing posting dates have been a nice help so far. I probably take the week off before and during my presentation week.

That's it for now.

Much Love,
Hema❤️
