That's what I get.


I got derailed this weekend with a helluva virus, thanks in part to the last few weeks of moonlight hikes and rock shows, I'm sure.  This morning I am feeling much better, but foggy-brained.  Coming into the studio and taking photos of the work in progress makes me realize that the next three weeks need Major Focus Time. 

Chicken Little, closer to fine.

This is the most dangerous time for  these pieces.  It's when I start to get down to details that things can go dreadfully wrong.  Of course, that is all part of the process. My friend Christine over at Du Buh Du had a similar situation a few weeks ago, and described it very elegantly.

Not sure what the story is on this one yet. A smaller one, quickly done last week before the illness set in.



The Owls are Not what They Seem.


"(S)he finds that lions do not understand (her) language."

In other news, the Art for India auction was last night at the PoetHouse.  I don't know the exact results yet of the fundraiser, but when I left at seven (I didn't want my wheezing to distract from the great live music), the loft was packed and the canvas that I had worked had sold several sections.  

All right. Back to work, ignoring the most beautiful day outside...

Tee Hee! I wondered if anyone would catch that... Probably not going to be the final title, but I just streamed those couple of episodes while working on stuff last week...
I actually thought of you when Leland started singing "mare's eat oats..."

My Mom used to sing that song to me when I was a little girl ... I loved it, even tho she could never really sing in tune! Hope you're feeling better, Kaycee. Love the girl on the bench with the birds ... they pop right out of the picture. Who is she waiting for? Hugs to you and Al! Love ya bunches!

Hey, Wish I could have been close to feed you some chicken soup! Knew you weren't feeling great when we talked. I fret that I may never get to see one of your shows. If I only had the words to write the fairy tale--too bad I'm such a pointer. Hope things are moving along on the Airstream. Love sasa
