Creative Distractions

If you read my blog you know that I was laid off from a full time arts administration job in Sept. 2008. This week I am waiting to hear if I have a new job. Waiting is torture! So I have been keeping myself busy with some creative distractions. I have been sketching, knitting, and working with the Through the Viewfinder technique I discovered a few weeks ago. Here are some images I took in a make-shift studio in my apartment's kitchen yesterday. The day went by so fast and I have some fantastic images to work with. Of course the day would have been even better if I found out if I got the job, but I guess we can't have it all. So I continue to wait and find more creative distractions.


  1. Joan these are beautiful images- Unemployment really does bring out the creativity in all of us... hopefully someone will tap into that and hire you up soon!

  2. Joan, thanks for your thoughts about Chopin.

    I am in love with these photos. I'm going to now go read through your blog. So glad to have found it (and you).
