what part of speech is as? it is a prepostion, an adverb, or a conjunction ...depending on the sentence ... seventh grade english times twins ... ouch
famous last words ... i think my slump is over ... well, that was the last posts title ... and it's from more than a week ago .... i actually did quite a bit of painting last week .. i just neglected to finish anything ... and i didn't take pics either .... i have not painted this week even though i'm doing a show this weekend ... oops!! i'll get right on that!
in the meanwhile, i went to pottery today and glazed six pieces ... i was MUCH more systematic than usual ... i usually just kinda splatter and have at it .... with little thought to what the colors are ... or i'll be in a hurry and glaze everything the same (remember the recent green pottery phase?) .... but today i had six pieces ...
-i glazed two mexico point green
-i glazed two emu
-i glazed two impossible purple (named such because it is hideous unless artfully mixed with other glazes)
then .... for the two mexi greens ... i sponged one in emu and one in impossible
for the two emus, one sponged impossible, one mexi green
for the two impossibles, one sponged mexi green, and one emu ...
systematic... not like me at all .... not willynilly at all .... and this way i should get six distinct looks... hopefully it will work that way! .... and hopefully a couple of them will look groovy ... and not impossibly ugly ....
between spelling, vocabulary and grammar tests this week ... and one kid home sick now... i'm ready for summer vacation ... and some time to paint! in the meanwhile, i'll tell you the truth .... too much tennis is not good for the art career ....
what have you been doing lately? artsy fab stuff? life stuff? exercising? nursing the sick?procrastinating the day to day chore stuff?
