Joetta Maue  This is about process. From an artist interested in the monumentality of all the little things.

Some #softlight to remind me to #soften

#thinking and #arranging thoughts to figure out what’s next #wip #artisticprocess #artiststudio #artistmother

#slowestprocessever this #handembroidery gig. #stitching away #inthestudio and looking forward to the first class of #stitchasmark @massartce tonight. Seriously #stitchbystitch this beast is humbling me. #textileartist

#morning work #embroidery #handstitching #textileart looking forward to sharing the awesomeness of #handembroidery to my students @massartce in my 10 week #contemporarystitch class that starts next week

Seriously being #inspired by the use of #shape and #negativespace by #saulleiter - I never knew about him as a young photographer but discovered him while making a ppt for one of my photo classes last fall. I especially love these types of images. Large areas of #color that frame a human #moment or #glimpse it's as if he perfectly combines #abstraction and #reality - I can always rely on my #localbookstore for a great find. #photography

A break from stitching to work on this little #drawing - I haven't felt the urge lately but it was so nice to pick up the #graphite #pencil and get back to this #beddrawing #bedlandscape I zone out in a special way while I draw. It takes concentration and focus but the way I draw is simply by following the #light and #shadow of the image. Sometimes it feels so good. #wip #inthestudio #domesticlandscape

#studioday with this kiddo. Can't wait to share some of these #embroidery techniques with my students @massartce starting next week 10 weeks of #stitches and #textileart with a strong focus on #drawingwiththread (there's still time to join) ok now for #hoursandhoursandhours of work to cover a tiny spot on this giant. I might be crazy for taking this on.....#femaleartist #wip

And amongst it all #lifeisgood

It's been truly a weird week for me... But I cannot tell you enough how amazing it felt to be in my #photoclass teaching photograms to the #smellofphotography and the sound of the running water. I love teaching #photography so much and that's why it is so #frustrating that I have to struggle so much to make a living. Lately I've really been rethinking this path I've chosen---- but there is nothing like the audible sound that people make when they see an image develop on paper in a vat of developer the first time. It' such a privilege. #iloveteaching #ilovephotography #lightandshadow
