an etsy listing! yay!
what's that steve miller song say? time keeps on slippin' slippin' slippin'...into the fuuuuutuuuuure!!!
it's totally true.
as summer fades into fall, and the plants outside succumb to my lazy watering scheme (read:when it rains, you get watered) i find myself wishing that time would slow down so i could do things..like...list more stuff for sale! or clean! or do dishes! or blog!
one thing i WON'T neglect is this awesome online drawing course i'm taking with tascha. i have loved her work since i found her a year ago, buying three of her holiday ornaments last winter. her style is so adorbs...and i had thought of commissioning her to do a painting of kirk, spock and i but instead i decided to take her class so i can free my inner frida kahlo and make one of us in tascha's style. i missed her online class the first time around and was determined not to miss it again. yay!
speaking of the divine miss K...here are some shots of the scarekahlo my mom and i made for her veggie garden this year. her body is an old tomato cage, her head is a milk jug (which i've stopped drinking but that's another story) with her eyebrows sharpied on..her hair is an old black sweater that just would NOT felt, her beaded flowers came from my stash of random stuff...her clothes were from my goodwill pile. the jewelry was from my sister-in-law and it's just too big for me (read, my bosoms are too big for IT) and the palette and brushes came from my mom's art supplies.
after reading 'the lacuna' as well as 'frida kahlo: song of herself' i guess it's not surprising that for me, this is the summer of frida. i am thinking of letting my eyebrow go for halloween and dressing up as her this year....instead of a monkey i'll have two very unruly kittens as my sidekicks.
