Abbracadabra or Not

Great, I am definitely still blocked. I thought I had this great painting idea so I decided to do a little test sketch with pencil to try out colors. This was the result. It looks a little too fantasy Circe de sole for me. Maybe the star shaped light reflection put it over the top. I think I need to get down and gritty. Stay tuned.

Take a bite of brownie, take a bite of cashews, repeat.

I'm having some website drama right now. I tried out a new website a month ago and like it, but still got orders of my old website. Blah blah blah, I went back to my original website. Now I'm being informed that I have to switch because the program thingy (I am a bit computerly inept) that designed my original website will no longer be available. So new website it is. The catch? I have to pay extra for it. The bast$#@s. So, stay tuned, bigger better website is on the way. Hopefully.

I'm a bit put off by the unexpected website costs. Did I mention they gave me seven days notice to switch. Thanks. I was really hoping to have my first melting clock chair done by the beginning of next week along with my first steel pipe base coffee table. In other words I need money to buy galvanized steel pipe. Wanna buy something? I have lots of really neat clocks ready to ship! I'm also planning on experimenting with acrylic resin for my finish instead of pre-cat lacquer. It will be a bit more expensive, but I think it may be more hassle free and provide a better look. It costs money, though. Really, I have twelve really nice clocks right here on my wall waiting for their forever

I've been uninspired drawing and painting wise lately. My head is completely in melting clock land. I have come up with what I think is a fabulous idea for several pieces of molded wood furniture that would be melting clocks and metal bases/chair legs. That is all I can think of right now. I'm just waiting for a few clock sales that will allow me to buy some supplies. I feel like I need something really eye catching sitting at the front of my booth for the Art Show in October and this furniture would be it.
I did muster up a sketch over the last few days. Not a good sign that I didn't finish in one sitting. Plus I'm only going to share part of the drawing. I think I'm going to take a break from drawing and painting until the urge hits me full force. And it will, eventually.
