let it go

one down one to go.  i gave this, my biggest most expensive piece away today.  i was happy to do so.  i knew i could never sell it online let alone ship it.  its huge.  i have another one same size that is on the gift list next.  i gave it to someone who has horses and works at the office (i deal with her regarding cleaning the apartments), she has been too good to me and put up with my finickiness when it comes to cleaning gross places.  were it not for her i'm sure i wouldn't have that job.  she loves it, really and truly so it is a burden relieved, she will love it and take care of it.

i just listed a few wall pieces on etsy for the lowball price, sale items are being listed here.  i feel good about it all which is the most important thing.  i feel lost right now, i've spent this whole week redoing my loft, now that tod is gone i felt it important to get it changed around and deep cleaned, even if i have to move in a month or two.  moving and heaving my art materials around is a little anxiety producing as i know i really cannot live in a much smaller place without walking over boxes.  i have no idea what to do. what to think. i'm pretty much exhausted from the stress of this year and its only april.  so taking it day by day...

I totally understand you! I think it is great to give this art piece to someone who really loves it. For her it is a treasure, for you it might be a bar to further proceedings.

Paula, I hope the hard times will turn soon to better for you! Good, taking it day by day!

That's so nice and generous of you, Paula. The piece is fabulous and deserves to be in a place where it's loved. If you're like me, you are cleaning to get rid of stress. I normally do that until I get to tired to think :) I know it may sound futile at the moment but hang in there and try to be more positive even if it's hard. Sending you a big hug!

You are right- one day at a time. Luckily time has good way of smoothing the past.

out of touch

I'm still working on my new website and it is still a challenge for me every single time I try to do ANYTHING.  I knew this would be a daunting task and I have not been proven wrong even 6 months later.  Forget about actually getting traffic from random seo searches, that is in the far off/unseen horizon as far as I'm concerned.  

I knew I needed to do this years ago but couldnt release even one tooth from the etsy teat until the cup runneth dry which it has for a year or more.  In fact, a few of you may remember and have even purchased art from my very first microsoft frontpage made paulaart site.  I love the wayback can see some pages of one of the last renditions of it before I went full on with etsy.   How I savanted THAT is something I'd pay money for to do again!  I had no clue what I was doing and yet managed to get sales from complete strangers for gods sake.  And yet today, with all the knowledge/experience I purportedly have (and all the bells and w…

Houston we have contact

last month tod and i went to houston. i suppose i didn't paint a very good picture of our experience that day, for whatever reason we just weren't digging it. you'd think after living in huntsville for six months we would be frothing at the mouth for some culture and anything would suffice! perhaps we've both been spoiled by the beauty and culture that other cities we've lived in/visited have offered and houston seemed to pale that day. well, yesterday i went back. i went alone (tod wasn't even interested to bother). i almost turned around the last 15 miles of my 67 mi journey. started feeling a little panicky and thinking too much, but hell with it, i hadda give it one more try.

after making a quick stop at a local farmers market, i headed straight for the Menil Musuem in the cultural district. i'm really not big into going to musuems or galleries but it felt like the thing to do. as you can see below, the Musuem is large and hosts an impressive co…

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…
