Today, among other things, I underpainted a stencil. Added more sketch lines over the top. Made a pig nose. Like almost everything I strongly disliked it at first. Now I'm growing fonder. The piece I always end up loving the most is almost always the same piece/page I reject so fiercely in the beginning. Since I know this about myself I usually ignore my initial reaction and soldier on.
Lately, Over The Rhine sets the mood while I piddle around in the art workshop. I am in love with every song on both of these CD's.
A leisurely Sunday, made slower by the fact that tomorrow is a holiday.
I'm almost out of exacto blades. Dogoneit. This will require a trip for art supplies. Bears in hibernation don't like heading out on supply runs. Nor should they.
Running out of stencil film is less likely to happen. I order it by the foot from PJ STENCILS
These flip-flops from FREE PEOPLE have my dreaming brain working overtime.
This email just in from my sister.
Here is a good mom story... when we were leaving Panera on Friday night she grabbed, and I do mean grabbed, a couple of bites of cookie that were sitting out as you came in for sampling. She has no shame at all when it comes to freebies. So we are walking out to the car in the 5 degree weather. Picking our way precariously across the ice and slush and such and I say "Mom, stop eating those cookies and pay attention to where you are going!" and she says "Oh, I can do both," chomp chomp chomp... it was v.v.v. funny.
