What’s in the Box

So, as I have the time, I’ve been plodding along, a snail’s pace, slowly, working on my notecards.  Once again, I’m feeling in a level mood, I can concentrate, and not everything looks bad.  My wrist is becoming more flexible finally.  Spring is off to a good start.  So, here are recent additions to the box:

One thing I’ve found, winged horses are always popular.

I’ve been relying heavily on my old paradise series in these.  I remember, a long time ago, writing a  post “I Want to Sell Out”.  I think I might have finally found a way, with popular subjects and successes from the past.  On inexpensive notecards.

So, fast and fun.

 

I’ve got nearly all my accent pieces framed, including this one, from the paradise series, that I hadn’t expected to use.  Turns out, I actually like it!  I’ll be damned.

So, what’s left is to put together the tables, easels, grid wall, and the nitty gritty of the tent display.  Also, more notecards.

Also, I may be doing a show in the fall in Redding , CT and looking at one in Washington, CT in the summer.

Kill Them All!

and let God sort them out later.  Was that from a spaghetti western or a WWII flick?  I know it was a from a movie, or at least, I sure, sure hope that was from a movie.  Unfortunately, in this day, it sounds just horribly like something that would happen in real life.

But that being said, I decided to draw notecards, good or bad, and sort them out later. I came to the realization that:

  • I can’t draw very well at all with my hand still injured
  • In the mood I’m in, I can’t tell whether any of them are any good or not.

I’ve been averaging a card a day, for a few days now.  Just fast and fun, without worrying much about them.

So here’s the first batch.

Then there’s this:

so, in another note, my friend and I drove out to the site of one of the fairs I signed up for.  We drove a long way, and in the cold, late winter the land looked depressing and isolated.  We saw some very big pawprints.  Bear maybe?  Cougar?

I’m sure in May, it will be much different.  I’m still worried about bears and cougars, though.

I’m Up For a Challenge

I honestly thought this would be easy.  I should have known better.  Making note cards with a drawing on them that people would like, and buy.  It’s a challenge, but I’m stubborn.  In fact I’m thinking of getting a tatoo that says that.  “I’m Stubborn”

So, another day, another learning curve. This is a small landscape.

And of course, cats. The subject is Tux, one of the ferals we used to feed.20190226_131704

I ruined this one.  Tried to erase a random mark on the back, and ended up with an ugly streak.  So, I did the following:

For those of you who are interested, and I know some of you are, the cats we left behind are just fine. we went back for a visit and found the whole neighborhood feeds them…..but especially our former landlord.  Thanks Louie!
