Has this been happening at other offices? I gotta admit, it made the whole experience far more....tolerant. With my headphones snug and The Living Seas IMAX special running, I almost didn't pay any attention to the work being done in the far reaches of my mouth (emphasis on "almost"). It was so weird. We must have come a long, long way in the world of dentistry if you can actually watch films while getting teeth pulled and fillings done. Good god, let this be a proof that they make an assload of money in that industry.
On to better things. I finished up the little paintings with their cute ribbons and can't wait to take pictures and load 'em into the shop (which should be happening tomorrow--I would do it today if I didn't feel like my lower jaw had just been pried from my head). I'll also be listing a neato miniature custom monogram painting--red and white stripes, adorable ghostly white umbrella, and the letter of your choice to adorn it (multiples of these will be available, depending on demand). I made one for myself and one for a friend at work who always buys me coffee and I LOVE how they look. And for $35, it's an awesome piece of custom-made original art.
Thought I'd share some images in my living room. I painted this teapot cat last week at work and it just came out of the kiln:I'm buckets of pleased. We had these two goofy cat ceramic pieces lying around that no one wanted, so I bought one and chopped the head off, then threw the base of an upside down teapot on top. A black and white striped tail, peppermint striped "nose" (teapot spout), and three painted eyes later and I had a glorious new beast to grace my abode. Here's a side shot so you can see the teapot head: He resides on the top of my old piano, along with various other painted ceramic bowls, photography, and an antique Royal typewriter. You can see another painting I did earlier in the year hanging on the wall as well (hard to make out here, and I promise to take close-ups, but it is indeed the upper torso of a crow on a circus-like arrangement of colored stripes):
Tonight I'll be heading to the theater to see the new Harry Potter movie and I'm terribly excited! I so hated the last Harry Potter movie and everyone keeps telling me this one is more reminiscent of Prisoner of Azkaban (by far my favorite)--though not quite at that level. If this is true, it should be a goodin'.
I'm off to take a cat nap and some aspirin. Painless sleep sounds so good right now.
