another wednesday .....

i'm doing well these days to blog once a week!! but the end is in sight ... i'll be back to my real house, my art studio, and real life in just a couple weeks! hooray ... my home renovation is almost done .... i met with the contractor today and talked about floors and counters and paint ... i talked to a knob guy and picked out my door nobs ..... i went to my last pottery class of the quarter ...... 

let's start there .... i went to pottery ... i picked up three pieces ... two quite good and one that i lovelovelove .... i got one piece of bisque back and glazed it ... i have high hopes for it ... white clay, long rectangle shape, melted glass beads into it .... i liked it so much that i made another one like it ... i also made a lumpy bowl .... lumpy on purpose .... i guess textured and organic would be an artsier way to describe it ... but, ya know, call lumpy, lumpy .... 

my kids get out of school this week, i need to start packing up the rental house, i have no paint days in my immediate future .. but soon... very soon .... i'll be back in my house and procrastinating unpacking the boxes and i'll go into a painting frenzy ..... do you remember the 2008 painting frenzy? i'll be like that again once my planers are realigned! i just know it .... 

and one last tidbit for your browsing pleasure ... my pal, al, who i lovelovelove to paint with, is doing a studio reno... and has some groovy toovy pics ... check them out here .... there's a teeny glimmer of me in one .... how 'bout those wall colors? girl after my own art heart!

been waiting for your blog....we are about to float away here....but drought is not over...

No art here either for no reason! too many other projects I guess.
Maybe tomorrow.

It doesn't seem possible that the work at the house is nearly done. I'll bet you are thrilled. Looking forward to seeing it when it is finished.
