So much fun this morning at Shaw Dog Park celebrating Howl-a-ween.  The dogs made me so happy--  I was smiling and laughing the whole time.  I need to be around more dogs more often!

had a fun costume party, and sold a few signs and cards.  lots of fun (but a pain in the neck logistically) THANKS to HEX again for all his help!!!!!

Made new big print and swapped it out at Dolcezza last night, and swapped prints out from Ave Jack and dropped them off for a WPA event in shaw.  (More logistics!)

Blustery cold day.  I'm here at the studio working on odds and ends, but I really want to go to the wood and hike.

Another busy day tomorrow stopping in Artomatic to paint, and Rockville to parcheesi.

Then, it's monday again.
New and improved landscaping in Rockville

New print for Dolcezza

Winner, large breed

All business at Shaw Dog Park

Feeling good today after a terrific massage yesterday.

Busy with work, but with a better attitude.

Huge Home Depot run again this morning - getting lots of wood and paint for the next few weeks.

Draw Draw Draw - I need to keep drawing.

Ha - in no mood to write right now.  Maybe I'll just leave it here . . .

Eventful week (especially in politics)

The lows of the debate on Sunday just went lower.  Hex and I watch MSNBC all night every night, with a few entertaining shows thrown in here and there.  The way it's all shifted to gender politics is so interesting.  A major turning point in history.  There is so much ahead.  Anxious to get to the election and beyond.

Installation at Dolcezza went well, and I felt so relieved afterwards.  But as usual, it's taken me more time that it should to shift gears.  I'm getting there.

Finished the poodles, and almost done with StoryDistrict.  Full weeks ahead still though.

Artomatic in Rockville is a go.  Hope its a good one.

Ah, I'm tired.  The giant coffee didnt do the trick.

(((a low blood sugar post)))

Thinking about the show @ willow street, and what all the prints as a whole represent.

I could think of lots of themes I didn't realize, and how they fit together.  Conflict, choice, upset, fear.  And then the random ones added in like bushes around a house.

Hung it all up yesterday, and am generally happy with it all.

Fine day printing.  Winding down > which means I need to gear up for all that I've neglected.

my phone and computer are noticeably aging.  So am I probably!

Little actions get muddled and tied up.  No more snap - just laggggggggggg.  It's harder and harder to jump around.  ugh -- just writing this is laggy.  That cursed "beach ball".

I feel like it all has to do with the CONSTANT feedback loop going on behind the scenes nowadays.  Every action needs to be logged somewhere in some mainframe and quickly analyzed so I can get stupid ads for shoes when I go anywhere.  i'm going to break my keyboard I'm typing with such frustration!

A N Y W A Y -  it was a busy / convoluted weekend.  I am making it through, but still bogged down in printing and not doing enough of other things.

Sad to miss Del Ray, but it's water under the bridge.

yikes, just saw the time.  more later

so busy with printing for Dolcezza.  I forget how much extra effort it takes to make larger pieces.  All coming out well, but it's slow going.

Happy to have the day over.  Screens made for the morning.

chicken with the BSUR ladies fun last night.

scared of the dupont circle rat pack.

working on prints for Dolcezza.  Like running in deep mud. (slow going)

happy about the debate, but still worried.

Incensed over stories of stiffed workers.

So incredibly sad to see the video of the toddler trying to wake her passed out / overdosed mother.  How could people just stand there and not comfort her?  It boggles my mind.

Worried about T's health.

Puzzled my Remis new normal, of "going" inside the house.

This is a rainy week, including maybe saturday.  Takes the sting out of the whole Del Ray / Transfer debacle.

ok, back to printing now.

Monday, September 26, 2016

so excited to walk in to the studio this morning and find the green windbreaker folded up on my table.  So much angst yesterday retracing steps and calling the hardware store looking for it.

Fall has arrived in a dramatic way.  cooler and darker.  Not so bad having a few rainy days, but…

High anxiety tonight about the 1st debate.  Fingers crossed it goes well for HRC.

Working on more prints, including the bear beaver LOVE print.  coming out well so far.

No transfers, so looks like Del Ray is a no-go Saturday.  sucks.

LOST & FOUND ! ! !

Friday, September 23, 2016

happy to deliver prints to Willow street gallery today!  Can shift my mind to next projects.

NO transfer paper in (still), so looks more like no Del Ray this year.  hex wants to sidewalk sale tomorrow.  We'll see.

Working on Andrea's print, and Dolcezza, and commissions, and StoryDistrict.

A good week overall.  Getting out of the weeds!

another day over

pick ups

& printing.

Finally putting the Takoma Show to bed, which means moving on to other things.  I can turn off my Takoma brain.  That will be good.  Dropping it all off tomorrow.

Days are getting shorter.

Frustration builds today.

problems with printer printing yellow, and therefore red, so my entire plan B for delray is fizzling.

I really can't stand the plan b paper anyway.  days go by, and nothing gets accomplished.  All I can think of is $x,xxx lost.  Damn.

bogged down and frustrated with my days, effort, and lack of progress.  Heard back from _ _ _ _, but it's not difinitive.  And wtf with _ _ _ _ _?  Ridiculous.

Nice time at Ave. Jack last night.  A bright spot.

Just need to stay positive.  What is meant to happen will happen.  95% of everything is out of my control anyway.

yikes - i've been a bad blogger.

Work has been so hectic - focused on one thing while the rest doesn't get finished.  I need 4 daves.  

Worked most the day saturday, only to have the drawing not work out.  It happens (rarely luckily), but sets me back.  Struggled to find my way today.  I expect that to be a running theme going forward into October.

Found some light towards the end of the day.  Shifted gears, (always hard), but it worked out well.

SO FRUSTRATED with DTG ! ! ! !  No word still on the transfers.  S T U C K K K K K K K K .

Everything pretty much in flux.  JUST / KEEP / MOVING / FORWARD >  >  >
