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.

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…
