dan phillips, tod and george
this is the post i wrote on the phoenix commotion site with some pictures of the day.
i also went to the Lamprose Gallery in Spring, Texas where my work has been for the last few months to see what the outdoor art market was all about. Vicki and Peter (owners) started this up a about a month ago on Saturdays but alas, yesterday was the last day for this until September. it's just too dang hot and slow until the fall. a handful of artists braved the heat and i got a chance to meet them and see their work. i look forward to getting my clocks and vases out there in september.
a potter (forgive me i can't remember her name and didn't get a card)
another painter (another name i didn't get, sorry!)
so. i gots blisters on my hands. a back that feels like its been pushed to the limit. a head less filled with fraught. and hopefully minimal poison ivy rashage. just trying to keep busy so i dont have to obsess over the money stuff. today (yes i've been up since 2:30 am cuz i never sleep well when i work really hard), george is coming by to clue me and tod in on the blueprint making process. tod and i are still trying to figure out how we want our tiny space to be. nothing is set in stone but before the bank will give us [tod] a loan we need to show them the 'footprint' of the house. for those of you who dont know (i didn't) the footprint is: The dimensions for the house only (indicating the smallest area needed to build). They do not include the garage, porches, or decks, unless they are an integral part of the design. This means our footprint will be around 400 sq feet even though the house will most probably be a total of 800 sq feet when the 2nd floor is built). we are just now coming to terms with the whole roof thing and general design. its the multitude of choices and unknown that always gits ya. if you only had 2 choices as opposed to 20, life would be simpler albeit a bit dull.
