when will e EVER do her 15th canvas .... starting to worry ??? ... maybe....

ya know .... i'm this artsy, busy, mom-ish, well (over?) educated, dog walking kind of girl ..... i love to read .... i love museums .... my favorite section of the paper is the front page and the editorials .... i've got a strong nerdy streak ... yup, on paper, i'm a true blue geek ..... 

but in real life, i'm not so highbrow.....my current dilemna?  lost, project runway, and an american top model marathon ..... all on at once .... an abundance of 9 o'clock viewing possibilities ..... and this during a writer's strike? what would i do if there were good tv on ... ah, the mind spins ..... not to mention, i flat out missed the opening episode of the new survivor ..... i just forgot about it .... oh well ..... 

but enough of my problems! here are my solutions to yesterday's blog.... fixed up angels: 


this first one is about eight inches tall .... white clay, red oxide glaze (is that right? now i'm not sure....)  i had her in the raku kiln yesterday .... and her wing fell off in their .... it was rescued and i scrubbed it up .... and glued it back on .... i believe that this is a lopsided flier ..... but no matter .... angels don't expect to be perfect ..... if only people were so smart .... 

i finally tossed out the other angel .... she wasn't lucky enough to be fixable after i mangled her .... that big chunk out of the side of her disattached head was just more than glue and glitter could fix .... luckily, these angels have no planned future ... they are just meant to be happy experiments .... or ordinary experiments in the case of the exploded head .... 


i have about 8 more bisque fired blobs ..... two that i have glittered and finished .... see them here .... and bunches to finish .... do you like this one? it is raku fired .... hawaiian blue glaze ..... i need to decide if i'm going to second fire the others , like this one, or if i'm simply going to leave them white .... julia, resident art critic and art cheerleader, likes this one better than the white ones ....i'm undecided ...... what do you think? 

i have a commissioned canvas ... the hardest kind to work on!! ..... somehow it is JUST so hard to do what i'm supposed to do .... i'm much more inclined to do my usual puttering and ignore the canvas with a deadline .... it's the slacker in me .... but i'll get it in gear .... i always do .... 

i've also had a decorator come by and she took a few pieces away ... and i realized that i really need to do some larger canvases ... i also need to do some more of my florals that aren't assemblaged ... more conservative ..... well, i don't need to, but i usually sell those pretty easily ..... i just need to get on with it, huh? ...but here i am fretting about poor, sweet jack on lost .... i love him ... but i'm really worried about his sanity ... and unless lost starts making more sense, you might need to worry about my sanity ..... tomorrow i WILL show you a canvas that has been completed .... maybe ..... i hope .... really, i'll try hard ...

keep in mind...i'm watching lost 3 hours AFTER you... hum.

so sorry you had to toss the wounded angel...did you toss her in the sky and see if she could fly?

you have a commissioned canvas to do...and you need to get number 14 done...and it's the weekend...almost...so much do do so little time...and tv...

see you there! said...

What are you doing here reading comments? You need to be working on that commissioned piece, LOL!

I need to be working on most anything but apparently my procrastinator is turned on.

I think I'll just go to the Mts. and hang out on the deck and stare at the view.

I like the white angels -- sorry Julia -- but I say variety in angels is a good thing.

OH I am loving Lost - and yes Jack is getting a little "darker" to me.
