STUDIES IN WHITE @ Counterbalance Park

Ice on the windshield. Dense fog filling up the ship canal. White sky with blue cracks. What a study in white! What a way to begin!! After calling for flooding rains, we were blessed with amazing weather, a few splinters of sunshine, some cool blues and whites breezing overhead, a cold northerly clocking around to the milder southerly. Though the ground was wet, it only really rained once, for 30 minutes, while Kate was presenting her study in white, a a 3-D paper sculpture. We covered her with white umbrellas and she worked on. Studies in White presented 8 studies over the course of 12 hours in at Counterbalance in Seattle, WA. The names of participating artists follows. I thank them all for bringing their genius to bear in a public way without worry to the weather.

The Flashlight Chorus: A. K. "Mimi" Allin, Clinton Bliss, Hugo Bliss, Beckett Arnold, Danae' Clark, Kate Freeman, Sean O'Connor, Mylinda Sneed. We each took a turn at directing. Styles varied from the traditional baton-bearing conductor to the point and explain conductor to the free form announcer to the story teller. Hoots and howls of laughter no matter which way you slice it.

Anyone for trekking into BIG white? Mountains are still filthy with it. Screaming down a slope in an inner tube, face-planting, ice crystals in the nose: opportunity ripe for verse.
