Happenings

I now have not one, but two new paintings to upload into the shop. Now I just need some free time and enough daylight to do so and I'm all set. You can see this little beauty that I'm oh-so-proud of (don't I always say that though?)... A continuation in the paper collage and transparent glazes I've been experimenting with. I clipped out a piece of old newspaper and collaged it to this 5x7" canvas panel. Then, as I began to lay down my paint glazes of a circus tent, I found a so-perfect-it's-eery paragraph in the text that describes the costumes of some sort of performance group. So, of course, I had to leave that portion unpainted. How unexpected and utterly cool.

I also got a bit of a haircut the other day for my upcoming trip. It reaches just barely above my shoulder and has this great late 60s/early 70s shag look and feel to it with my intensely thick curls. I really like it (though I'm sure I'm the only one who can tell I got it cut--don't you just hate that?). It always feels so...refreshing to get hair lobbed off. The next time I get it cut I'm gonna do a nice and short style--kinda 30s like. I always pump myself up to get it cut that short and then I get last-minute doubts and the hairdresser always ends up leaving it longer, thinking I'll ball my eyes out if it's cut too short (...which just might happen). One day though, it'll happen.
The yellow jacket is from Target, of all places (got it last winter on sale). And then I just recently snagged these super cool green and white leather boat shoes from Lands End (on sale for $30!). I love them so. The next few days will be busy busy busy. Besides work and uploading new work into the shop, I'm going out on Tuesday night to my favorite comic book shop in Seattle with friends from work and then we're getting drinks and eating out at a fancy schmancy Thai place over there afterwords. Comic books AND Thai food? Oh I am SO there.
Happy trails, peeps!

I love your hair. :) I remember thinking at Central it would look so totally cute short, but it's all about how you feel about your hair, you know? I'm growing mine back out for a bit - certainly not as long as before, though! It looks great. :)

Thanks, Rachel! :) I used to be so paranoid about my hair needing to be a specific length and look but now...not so much. Just getting inches lobbed off is awesome, I almost don't even care how it's done. I'm really lucky in that I can get a bad haircut and the curls will typically hide it. 'Least they're good for one thing...

hey, you should go check out Karlyn's new blog, I have it linked on my page. She just felt the baby move. :) And she has a NICE student apartment - I didn't think those two adjectives belonged together when describing an apartment. :)
