here's my thursday post .... the last post was thursday ... but was just a tiny moment of excitement, not my actual blog-o-the-day....


so, being true to the artist that is trying to get out ... the artist that only wants to do art .... the artist who wishes so many other things didn't get in the way of art time .... true to that artist, i had a few stolen moments in my studio today ..... i worked on getting a couple white canvases going ..... piled on some papers for the deepest background texture ...... and then i worked on this monopoly board ...... i had started it on monday ... and then on tuesday i had foresaken it for a scrabble board...... because my background had moved away from it .... so..... i worked on it today ..... and considered what canvas to put it on ( i think i need to go shopping for the right size) .....and worked on pulling papers to use for the foreground .... hopefully, this will turn out lovely enough that i will make a print of it..... at the norcross art festival last weekend, i sold prints of two of my house collages .... and i personalized them for the buyers .... with home sweet home or bless this home and the family name ......they sold well ..... so for my next show, i have in my head that i'm going to have more than two choices .... allison and i even talked about me doing a christmas collage that could be a print and personalized .... i think it's a great idea but don't actually have a notion of what i would do or how it would look .... so we'll have to wait and see on that one ....well, wait and see for about a second ...since the marist show is three weekends from now ..... not much stewing on that one ... gotta do it if i'm gonna do it ......

so this photo is the same piece, just propped on my table ..... over on my flickr site i've added all kinds of tag boxes with notes so you can see what's what .......
tomorrow i have five girlfriends coming over for some basement art time ..... we'll be working on some stuff for a party and auction at church ... so not my art ... but at least it is art ...... and they are bringing fun food .... and we'll have a grand time ... and then ...when they leave .... i'll do MY art .... tra la la .....

I think your personalized prints of your art are going to take off! It's so cool!
