Catherine Whall Smith . . . got her shot!

I really enjoy watching those “So WHAT are you waiting for!” GEICO  ads. Right now I am waiting to get my 2nd Covid-19 vaccine shot.  First shot done! So how will my life change after the 3 week wait – we will see.  I missed the opening of the Mattatuck Museum’s Mixmaster show, but my piece “Cows Got Milk and Plasma” was awarded a  Juror’s Selection Prize (Juror Leslie Garrett, Director at Nohra Haime Gallery in NYC.) Show Dates: Sunday, Jan.17 – Sunday Feb.21, 2021  at Post University, 140 Bank St, Waterbury, CT CHECK IT OUThttps://www.mattmuseum.org/exhibitions/mixmaster/

I’m keeping up my studio time by working on a new “Figure/Ground” series. Each piece consists of one of my Figure/Ground paper studies photographed and digitally applied to treated cotton. Then it is combined with one of my local farm photos. For example: shown below; “Figure/Ground Study Interplay#2/Rte 66” – NOTE:  this piece will be shown along with “Herd Immunity” at the Slater Memorial Museum’s 77th Annual CT Artists Juried Exhibition – on view January 31 – March 12, 2021. Norwich, CTShown below is another in this series:  “Figure Ground Study #3/Blue Bales”

These mounted 12x12x1.5’s are a quick study to keep my mind in studio mode.  Which allowed me to resolve some ideas for my next “Transfusion” piece. I’m thinking lots of those reds with oranges and a touch of green.  My goal is to complete the top and have it ready for hand-quilting by February 11th – the date of my SECOND SHOT.

Note: As I watch TV and view people in long lines waiting many, hours to get their shots, I am thankful for Hartford Health Care’s – My Chart system. I was able schedule both of my shots via this system and my wait time at my 1st appointment was less than 15 minutes. – Congratulations to our new President Joe Biden, and Vice President Kamala Harris. They will have their work cut out for them. Speaking of cutting, I think I better head up to my studio and start cutting up some fabric.  Stay Safe . . Get Your Shot . . Smith Stitch Studio!
