all in a line.....
these are three of 4 canvases that are going to be home for some mid century bathing beauties. i work in series-es, if that is a word. i doubt that is a word. i love to line up canvases and work in the same style of 4 or 5 even 6 at a time. since i work very fast, it makes sense for me to approach my work this way. i can rapidly work one after the other - creating a cohesiveness to the pieces. why do i work this way? i don;t really know, i have just evolved this way. i think it all has something to do with laziness and short attention span.
so, tomorrow another full day's work tomorrow with artist claire-lise anderegg at my house. i do enjoy our workdays together. we are learning a lot about each other's work and work styles. hopefully, in the end, we will do a wonderful collaborative that everyone will enjoy.
also, i spent the better part of yesterday and today with my great art buddy, kathy olsen. she got a bee in her bonnet about the state of her garage and work studio, so we cleared out boxes and boxes of crafts that she says she does not want anymore. i couldn't see her throwing them in the trash so i took them to put in my already full garage.
so, what does this mean? this means that i HAVE GOT TO organize a craft garage sale. this will take some doing. i have said many times in the past that i ought to do this, but now there is no turning back. stay tuned for the date.
OK american idol: so sorry to see season 8 come to a close. i think adam will win - he is massively talented and from san diego. and this will make my dear cousin fred happy since he picked adam from the start.
however, i must say that chris has turned me around. i was saying all throughout this season that he should be thrown off - but this has changed for me. i really like his beatnik style - his soft, feeling voice, his many music talents - he plays about every instrument, i think. adam is adam, but chris is a lot more than just chris - he has talent in many ways - singing, playing re-writing music, making old songs his own -every time. if that makes sense.
so we shall see.
