Coming up for air
So here is one of the new 6x6's that I like. Every once in awhile I make one that I really like and this is the pick of the week. I don't know why I find this one so funny but I laugh every time I look at it.
I have been working my ass off, pretty much non-stop for days now. Despite the fact I am sickly and don't have my normal energy, I have by some insane miracle managed to finish ALL the pieces that I had planned. Since it is apparently such an honor to be accepted to this show (my booth neighbors at last week's show were giving me a lot of shit that I got in my first year), I mainly wanted to feel like I had put forth my best effort. And after today's work I do feel I have done that. If any of you are in the Kansas City area, be sure and come visit me at:
But it has been tough. The cold/sinus thing has been horrible and the new scanner hasn't helped either because I don't really know how to use it so I've been doing this shoot from the hip scanning that is slowslowslow. And then tonight I am doing finishing touches on these pieces and notice I have done something totally idiotic......you see, John wires my canvasses for me and usually does this after I complete a piece. I have been working so fast and furious we thought it might be more productive if he did the wiring ahead of time which he did. And, you guessed it, I made the pieces upside down, sideways, you name it, completely ignored the wire placement! I didn't even think about it, just went about my merry way and now he has to re-wire about 6 pieces because I am such a numbskull. What is even more hilarious is that I am so ego-centric (it's all about me, isn't it?) that, when I noticed it, I immediately thought John had lost his mind and made a mistake.....uh-oh.....I did fess up.
