Auction #4

Now offering 'Back View Woman'.  I painted this on canvas my winter spent in Minnesota. My first winter 'on the road' so to speak.  I spent about 8 months there, that is where I began earnestly seeking my way with art making.  I dabbled in drawing and painting, then moved on to painting on ceramics (most of which I had to throw out when I moved on as it wouldn't all fit in my already packed car).  A few mugs and coasters are out there in the world...some of you even have one or two eh?

Anyhow.  Since this was just on canvas i could roll it up and take with.  It would be about 5 years later that I had it professionally scanned/printed as a giclee and then professionally laminated onto the 1/4 MDF board.  tada.  art. 

what else.... oh i'm quite pleased that a puzzle piece sold (not on ebay but on etsy!)  yesterday.  thank you you you know who you are.  also this weekend one of my ebay auctions ended with a bid, so that was nice too. 

recap: tod finally made it out of here on friday.  one helluva week.  i am now busy with catching up on much needed sleep, as well as doing a big clean/rearrange/reorganize and refitting my brain into my skull.  still nothing speaking to me or coming to me as far as living situations.  i sometimes get the strangest feeling that maybe i'm not supposed to go anywhere right now.  i mean if nothing is coming then there is nothing doing. i am most curious what the hell is going to happen.  i've put my life on auto pilot...i just am tired of trying to control is cuz you can't really do that anyhow. 

oddest time EVER.  cleaning jobs have stopped for now.  my art mojo is buried at present.  my studio is a mess and everything is out of whack and out of order.  when in doubt.  do what is in front of you.  hence massive organizing/going thru things and preparing the best i can for a move, even if i dont know if/when.  i hope to make some art this week if i can ever find my studio space again. 


I wake up with coffee served in one of your mugs ... on its matching coaster at my bedside. Consequently, my early morning thought is "Good morning, Paula."

Organize, organize, organize. Get it ready. Get yourself ready. You KNOW the art mojo is in you somewhere. By doing what you are doing now, well, you ARE doing things. Setting up the next stage.

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
