this is more like it!

back to something i know how to do- comforting....even tho this is in that icky scary stage :)

started another small heart. cutting the love page out of dictionaries & thesaureses (thesaurii?)- it often has lousy by it- and lox too in this case. the lyrics from the megadeath songbook that i picked up somewhere seem to work well with this theme- who knew?

doing another raised heart- this from glass bead gel- hopefully will hold its shape & dry clear....

and yes, it seems to have worked! (at least the shape part).

i need more new work that i thought i would at the gallery this month b/c one person didn't like the fact that i hadn't framed canvasses that weren't gallery wrapped (hence had staples) but did have the edges painted, so you had to look to notice that. worst part was they'd been up for a month and no one said a word, so i wasn't expecting it. so nancy's coming over tomorrow for tuesday evening painting and hopefully i can make some progress.

trying to figure out how to make a studio out of a shed in the back yard, accomplishing 2 things- less lawn & somewhere to put all of the art stuff instead of having it strewn all over the house. so far, it's looking promising.

that's it for now! mas manana-

Oh, don't you just love the people who can't live with staples......>:\
I love what you're doing on the current work, and good luck with getting the work for the gallery.
If it isn't one thing, it's another!

Hi Marianne - Soon you will have a "room of your own"! (But - will it be hot?) I noticed when I enlarged your photo that the lyrics to the song were "mercy killing..." I like the heart.
