thursday's the new tuesday



umm, it's not
tuesday.
i am sadly behind
on the week...
since it's thursday
and
i am still stuck
in tuesday's
to do...

so here
are some
of the polaroids
from the past
few weeks...




brunch with
rebecca





john cavanaugh's studio
is in
my neighborhood





for the
one in ten
auction



tour of
an apt grub
is designing


. . . . .

i really haven't
been
happy
with my photos
these past
weeks...
i am just off
somehow...
does that ever happen
to you?
times when you
feel that any
creative
ability
has completely
vanished...
maybe i need
a vacation.

also
here's a purse
i did the other day...

i have a whole pile
of them to
decorate
for the
autumn line
that will be
sent off to
Seattle, DC,
NY and LA...

I always love your Pola's Gwen - they are spot on for me!!! But yes, i know this feeling when a break is needed. :)
I love the posters you have in your home!!

i think the polas are lovely personally. but sometimes i get the shakes and cant take a clear picture to save my life. that drives me crazy.

grub is such a great designer. his apartments are a lot like his cooking and his cocktails, i think... he is a wizard. an understated wizard. as for the pics... i am so in love with all your farmers' market polas. they always make me so happy.

shari said...

love the grub photo. :) gwen, i always think your polas are wonderful and these are no exception. i'm feeling off too so i know what you mean but..i do find these quite lovely. we had dinner with f. pea last night and of course, we missed you. maybe soon. xox

Oh, yeah...creative slump. Not as bad as artist's block, but almost as demoralizing.

Go to the ocean for a day or go camping...does it for me everytime.

Hey---is Grub getting shaggy?

oh buggest,
I understand you completely....there is never enough time in the day.
I also feel you on the subject of being in a creative slump...sometimes the well is dry :(
It will pass....you are too brilliant for it not to!

besides these polas are amazing...esp the flower ones..I *swooned* the instant I saw them....seriously.

and the shots of grub are wonderful :)

and that bag....*sigh*

;)xo

Oh, yes... know that feeling all too well. It must be one of those necessary things, eh? No fun to endure, but hopefully it never lasts too long (fingers crossed). It happens to me quite allot.
I love that first polaroid... shadows and bicycle spokes! And those floral blooms. Such a fan of yours, I am.
see you, g

I know the "I think I need a holiday" feeling, though I don't think your photos are off at all. On the contrary, Bugheart, I'm really enjoying them.

Sheri said...

swooning over the bicycle photo and the adorable yellow PURSE! love!

Heather said...

Hmm... funny that you say that about your photos, since I was looking at this post and thinking I wish I knew how you got such great polaroids. I took about 70 of them this weekend, and none of them are nearly as great as yours!

cruststation said...

Don't be so hard on yourself, I really love this new set of polaroids especially the first one. Hope you get time off for a vacation soon.

Dacia said...

love that apt! so beautiful. I think your photos are beautiful, as always!

amisha said...

your pieces for the one in ten auction are wonderful. and i agree with the other comments that i loved these polas... the beautiful colors and feeling of summer.... i do love seeing the world through your pola eyes.
but i understand that feeling of creative blahs too... i think a vacation is a very good thing for that.
