laigrai nick and I kept eating grain bowls and fancy salads all over town and then I remembered that I'm a pretty ok cook, so I made myself this birds nest salad with whatever the f I wanted to put in. baby kale, pea shoots, cilantro, fresh mozzarella, toasted sesame oil, pink peppercorns, poached egg! 3d

laigrai wishing I was here on this snowy friday 3w
  •   absider I really like this. Do you sell these little guys? 2w
  •   laigrai @absider thank you! no, I don't sell any of my art anymore. shrug. I lost interest in production. 2w
  •   absider Well if not selling it to produce for others. Do you ever sell existing pieces? 2w
  •   laigrai @absider haha I just make for the sake of making. I'm open to making pieces for other people- I just didn't like having an inventory of stuff sitting around. I guess the artistic accumulation has to go somewhere so I suppose why not to others? but I didn't like my craft being dictated based on an idea of what would or would not sell. or thinking about the time spent and money spent vs how much to charge... it was all unappealing at the end. but! that doesn't mean I wouldn't trade or barter or share with people who appreciated my art. I just had to consider what my values were and draw the line somewhere. so i closed my shop and started just focusing on the process of art making. 2w
  •   absider Oh I fully know how you feel there. Sometimes this job has you doing things you're not always into. But luckily I've been able to get more of my style in there. Get more enjoyment out of it. It can be tough when someone else always dictates what you do. Always good to draw or paint or do anything outside of your job. Well if you're down to barter or sell anything let me know. I did that little piece you posted. I'm always seeking out new work. Almost running out of wall space. But I can always make room. Haha. 2w
  •   laigrai @absider thank you! I love your work too!! let me rummage through my finished pieces and see if I find anything that feels like your style :) 2w

laigrai realized that I slipped out of my habit of daily art making and that potentially it had to do with the amount of light trickling into my room. moved my desk back to the window and already feel happier 3w
