Today I did a ton of matting and framing to get ready for selling at Super Crawl. I cut all my mats by hand with just a metal ruler, my mat cutter, and a whole lot of music loaded up in the CD player. The 4 albums I listened to today were:
- So This Is Goodbye – by the Junior Boys
- Sub Verses – by Akron/Family
- It’s all Crazy! It’s all False! It’s all a Dream! It’s Alright – by Mewithoutyou
- Prose & Kahns – by Old English
I really enjoy being able to just work on a task that has enough repetition in it that I can really listen to the music. It isn’t often that I have time to listen to 4 albums in a row uninterrupted. I also enjoy the process of matting and framing, lots of other artists find it tedious, but for me finishing off a piece of art with a crisp mat and a simple frame really feels validating. A piece of art doesn’t feel finished until it is able to be hung on a wall and enjoyed.
