Oh Snap!

I've gotten to a point with this painting where I've been working on it for so long that I can't see it anymore. It's mostly finished, there may be a few touch ups here and there but it's time to let it go. I'm not sure it turned out quite how I thought.

I think I'm going to work on small 4x6in. paintings for a while. My goal is to make a total of 130 of them and ultimately have a show. I believe I have about 10 or so completed at this point. This is an example.

I'm hoping that posting this goal will light a fire under me to actually complete all of them. I must also quit giving them away as presents to friends that probably don't want them anyways.

This is my new camera case.

It is fashionable as well as functional. I was having a hard time finding a suitable case for my new camera so I figured that I could just make one and it pleases me very much to make something out of $1.00 worth of felt. I feel like I really pulled one over on "the man" with this one.

P.S. One of my office fish died over the weekend. We had a bathroom funeral where Abi, a co-worker, sang a fine song. The other fish has some sort of fungus which means that I need to go buy medicine for him, let me remind you that I purchased him for .25 cents.

Okay I have lots of comments. First - O Snap - what a great camera case. And I love how you fooled the man. Also I love your painting. I think its awesome - I've always liked it when I have seen it through various stages of construction. I think its awesome that you can paint things that actually look like things. Also - my condolences on the death of Dwight....or Angela.....who was it? Those were the best names by the way. Maybe you could get another 25 cent fish and name it Creed or Jim or Jan or Andy. Anyway, I commend you on your wildlife conservation efforts - and millions of tiny fish thank you.

Please don't name a fish Creed. That is just scary.

I also love your paintings and your camera case. I knitted a cool cable-y camera bag and I haven't finished it. I think I started it over a year ago. Uh, whoops.

it was taps, i sang taps. let's just stock the tank like a pond and have a survival of the fittest thing going on.
