another arrrrggghhhh moment (weekend)

geez oh pete!

frustrated.

& the weekend is o.v.e.r.

I did make it to the trail and the gym (yay for endorphins!)  ok, now that is quite an accomplishment considering my attitude & lack of motivation lately.   I guess my weekend was not a total bust!

I tried very hard Saturday to do some art.  I couldn't even start anything.  finally, around 7 pm I tried doodling at the suggestion of my friend Michael. 


sometimes brainless acts of art help to get you back to the flow.

that lead to some paper bag flowers. 

it took me 4 more hours on Sunday to make this:


I took these photos in the same light, in the same position, so go figure on the exposure.  The bkgnd is actually the same color as the flowers.  would you believe it took me about 2 hours to decide where to place those flowers???  ack!  I know, that annoys me too!!!  I can tell that you have absolutely no attachment to the placement of the flowers!  why should I care so much?!

I also prototyped some ATCs.   Made this one for ATC the Music, Wishlist by Pearl Jam.  (Eddie!)  We'll see if my Linda posts it!   I wasn't entirely enamored of the piece, felt like it needed more development, but I wanted to get something done for Linda's blog. 


 I spent a good amount of time looking for things I know I own, but can't remember where I put 'em.  I did find the yellow mini pom-poms  : .)

that's it.  I hope my week is better...
