Monday 1st October 2007

That month flew past so quickly!

I love writing in my blog! I couldn't wait to get to my computer and it's like 6am. I didn't turn my computer on yesterday so that maybe why I couldn't wait?

I mixed up all the old paint I had and it gave me a pinky colour and I painted one side of my studio and got some of the other side done but ran out of steam, hopefully I will have it finished today or tomorrow. It's amazing what a lick of paint will do. I have started rearranging everything as closing the gallery I have had to make room up here for everything to fit. I'm still not sure where the framing gear is going to go and how I am going to store the hundreds of paintings I have? I am lucky that I have a spare room to set the dark room up in but that will be last. I decided to have a party the end of October and want to have the place looking wicked. We haven't had a good party in ages! It gets so cold up here in winter.

I'm the luckiest girl! My beautiful husband bought me breakfast in bed yesterday and he cleaned my car for me and gave it a good polish which it was in great need of.

That car has been one of the best purchases in my life. My friends crack up that I have still got it but it's like a go kart and to replace it would be difficult, she runs on the smell of a oily rag and the price of petrol at the moment I just can't see the sense it selling her unless a spunky 911 was the replacement. I have always wanted a Porsche ever since I was a little girl, they are just so hot!

My sister rang me yesterday and we talked for and hour and 20 min it was good to catch up with all the gossip in the family. They must of spent the afternnon on bebo cause that sent me some pretty cool drawings it feels like such a long time since I have hung out with them.

This photo was taken in my studio a month ago. They are some pretty cool people Maka, Stefano, Dan and Sonya. They were enjoying the sun after having finished a beautiful breakfast that Sonya was kind enough to make for all of us. I had only meet Dan and Sonya night before and everyone stayed over and we had a great night. Look at Ralphie waiting for food to fall on the ground hahaha.

I love hanging out with Maka it's like being with an old school friend and we are just silly girls which I think everyone needs in their life because life can be just to dam serious!

Here is something to make you smile:

These 16 Police Comments were taken off actual police car videos:

#16 "You know, stop lights don't come any redder than the one you just went through."
#15 "Relax, the handcuffs are tight because they're new. They'll stretch after you wear them a while."
#14 "If you take your hands off the car, I'll make your birth certificate a worthless document."
#13 "If you run, you'll only go to jail tired."
#12 "Can you run faster than 1200 feet per second? Because that's the speed of the bullet that'll be chasing you."
#11 "You don't know how fast you were going? I guess that means I can write anything I want to on the ticket, huh?"
#10 "Yes, sir, you can talk to the shift supervisor, but I don't think it will help. Oh, did I mention that I'm the shift supervisor?"
#9 "Warning! You want a warning? O.K., I'm warning you not to do that again, or I'll give you another ticket."
#8 "The answer to this last question will determine whether you are drunk or not. Was Mickey Mouse a cat or a dog?"
#7 "Fair? You want me to be fair? Listen, fair is a place where you go to ride on rides, eat cotton candy and corn dogs and step in monkey crap."
#6 "Yeah, we have a quota. Two more tickets and my wife gets a toaster oven."
#5 "In God we trust, all others we run through NCIC."
#4 "How big were those 'Just two beers' you say you had?"
#3 "No sir, we don't have quotas anymore. We used to, but now we're allowed to write as many tickets as we can."
#2 "I'm glad to hear that Chief (of Police) is a personal friend of yours, so you know someone who can post your bail."


#1 "You didn't think we give pretty women tickets? You're right, we don't.
Sign here."

My message for the day was: If you do not fully believe in us, you will know that we are real after asking for and receiving our help two or three times.

Wish I had a studio that big, where can I see your work? I'm an artist myself.

Art Every Day Month Day 7 - Encaustic Wax

I'm really enjoying blogging again, it's been years since I have written everyday. I used to do morning pages before I got pregnant, I have heaps of books full of my dribble. The Artist Way by Julia Cameron got me into the morning pages! Every artist should own a copy of that book! 
I was talking to a friend yesterday and she wanted me to order her a box of encaustic wax. I haven't done any encasutic for such a long time, so today was the day to dust off the cobwebs and get melting. 
Here are my 2 creations for the day...

Don't you love the texture wax makes!
I have been looking for my cutter cause this card is too big and I just can't find it anywhere. 
Here are some other pieces I have done, in the past with encaustic wax.

This one was done with the iron on card.

Finally life is back to normal

Today is the first day in nearly 2 weeks that we have back our happy little singing girl. Nothing worse than a sick child! It makes you realise, on days like today, how lucky we have it.
I got a lot done today I started painting a series of affirmations paintings for our house. It will be nice to be surrounded in positive words when we need them. Called into the recycling centre and the supermarket. Gave shit to plummer Dan when he walked in on me cleaning the shower and chatted to the builder who is fixing our bathroom floor. Caught up with Chanz, Mum and Lyn. Got my 4 artist trading cards ready to send off 2mora for the next trade. Bought a Norfolk pine for our Christmas Tree, potted it in a lovely pot and decorated. I also split up one of my plants that I have wanted to do for sometime now but had ran out of potting mix. I got a shock when I drove into the Springvale Garden Centre it's FLASH! They have a kids play area, I have never been to a garden centre with a playground in …
