Sink spit up

as in gross blockage accumulating in the basement sink. Resulting in me having to take two loads of laundry around the block to the laundromat. Snow is falling falling all day. I'm wearing my winter hat with the flaps, looking around the internet, and just put a batch of brownies in the oven.
Bummer man, I just heard that Polaroid is not going to make instant film anymore. I was already wondering what to do with the I-zone and the Joycam since they don't make film for those anymore either.

The picture above is from an interesting article on NPR titled: Eroded Oregon Coast Yields Once-Sunken Surprises. It made me want to go there to photograph the landscape.

Speaking of photography, there was a really interesting article in the NY Times Home and Garden section about Gallerist Jen Bekman and how she got her start. Hope this link to the article works!

new drawing

Here's a pastel drawing, it's finished although as I was looking at it I see something that's bugging me. Must move onto the next thing and stop agonizing over all the little things.

Happy Belated Valentine's Day

Ok so this was the spread at a gig we went to in New Martinsville, West Virginia for Doug and Daphne's concert. I ate a lot of sweeties.

cup of inspiration

This quote is on my Starbucks cup today:
The most important thing in life is to stop saying
"I wish" and start saying "I will." Consider
nothing impossible, then treat possibilities as probablities.
--David Copperfield
Words to live by.

3-D Paper Collages

Today I'm working in the green room ...also known as the spare bedroom. I tried doing work at my studio yesterday but it was just too darn cold. Since today is a day off for me, I decided to just play and make some collages at home-- and I'm having fun with markers, paper and scotch tape. Making art is a continual evolution and everyday I feel differently about it. I've come to the conclusion that this is the year I'm going to push forward. In both working on my art and gaining exposure for it. The wheels are in motion!
I'm so excited to be off from work for a few days (till Monday). This weekend we are going on a mini adventure to W. Virginia. Will report later.

weekend wonders

All weekend I worked on putting a press kit together so that I can start sending my work out to galleries. I ordered new business cards and they are due in around Feb.21. I polished up my artist c.v. and artist statement. Best of all I was looking online to gather ideas for business cards and letterhead and came across this flickr collection.

yummy stuff

I have been loving this tea lately! It smells divine and no matter how long you leave the tea bag in- the flavor just keeps getting better. They have a really cute website too!

I feel very professional and accomplished today! I ordered brand spankin new business cards and put all my finances in order and even made some calls I've been putting off for awhile. It is so nice to have a day off and catch up on stuff. I had a good night's sleep last night which is always helpful too. I decided I need to update all my art related business stuff-- new press kit, new postcards, etc etc. New year- new stuff.

Tonight, I'm exciting to see and hear D perform at this event

I have been knitting this really cute jumper from the Holiday 2006 issue of Vogue Knitting, forever. Everyone at work is asking when I'm going to finish it so they can see it on me-- and I'm so close to finishing. I have the top and bottom hems and sewing all the pieces together. Almost, almost.
Here's to a happy and productive weekend y'all!
