Day #323 and more

 This is Sidney, whose owners are on a trip to Turkey. We're so happy that we could be the dog sitters for this little guy. He's very calm and easy to care for, and since I'm not feeling well, and spend most of my time laying about the house, he's good company curled up next to me.
 Today's mail art, more of the painted women traipsing past Tiny Town.
I'm having such fun cutting up old paintings. I love the way the scale throws me off, makes me wonder what's going on in the minds of those little people in the town.
Okay so I have to tell you that I'm feeling a bit crazed about saying yes to an edition of 21 pieces for the art-o-mat machine at the Visual Arts Center. Why oh why did I think this would be good, oh maybe because I wasn't ill when I said yes, and now I have a bad cold on top of still having to make platelets, and I have no energy, or stamina. I have 21 blocks of wood. What will I do with them. I've only a vague idea. Soon as I feel a bit more energy, I'll make some sample, test some materials. AAAGH!  What was I thinking!? I'll keep you informed.

Sidney is so cute! I can picture the two of you cuddled up. Will look forward to seeing what you come up with, but I wonder, do you ever not accept a challenge? I think not! Xo

Love Tiny Town - wonder if they freak out when they get a visit from a big person - or - are they used to it by now.

I think Tiny Townies are like ants. They just hope they won't get stepped on. Or looked at closely with a magnifying glass on a sunny day.

how 'bout wood BURNING? I think that'd be REALLY cool. AND you could hand-color inbetween the burned parts! xo, bb
