here comes the sun!

glad to see blue skies this morning after days of grey.

trying to get back on track after a few days of (being off track).  Finishing up jack and bossy squirrel and cello prints and drawing Emi.

fingers crossed it wont be too painful!

the birds are back, with fresh food.

many days of gloom this week!  Rainy and sad weather.  (hex in LA, I assume in the s u n )

Happy to have the cleaning completed, and ready to move on with my week.  Out of the tar pit, and into the field.

Today, Yesterday, Two Weeks from Now, & Last Month

by dave peterson

all the birds are fighting

over the last portion of food

I have left for them.

I'll have to go

to the store and buy

peanut butter, so I can eat lunch

and continue

what I'm not doing.

Classic dream last night.  Huge paper due (for school) and I'm not prepared and can't find my notes and time is running out and I'm panicked.

Maybe has to do with with my week.  Countdown on deadlines, and each day I leave the studio feeling like I've made no progress.  Hoping for a break through today (thursday).

This happens A L L the time.

Sunny morning, which is always refreshing and hopeful.  Spring like weekend ahead.  And hexy is heading to LA.  I'm determined to stay active while he is away. Let's see if I can...

more of the same last few days.

blah february - really typical.  Working on sock print, ordered some business cards, and contemplated all the drawings I should be drawing.

super cold!

Barb's pick-up

the gang february 8 2016

Fun night with the ladies last night @ pollo rico.  Really nice to see them and laugh with them.

Terrible morning again this morning, woken up again by pounding treadmill.  Hopefully we have finally made progress getting it resolved.

Snow predicted was a no show - it's actually sunny out now.

Made progress here and there, but another blah day overall.  Being tired doesn't help, and so distracted.  plotting to leave soon.

strangely weird blah day.

I was happy to come in with all these big things behind, but then it just felt like I couldn't figure out what to do next.  There is a lull.  Mondays can be like this - takes a few days to get into the meat of the week.

Think I'll leave early.  Call it a day, go to the gym, and then meet the girls for chicken.

my day off today (saturday) turned into a pretty full day in front of the computer, working on my website.

After all these years I just now added "buy" buttons to all the prints.  Not sure if it will make a big difference, but maybe on the margins.  I get so many enquiries that then involve multiple steps before the actual "purchase" is made.  This is such a simpler option.

Really happy to have sold "Bearly Interested" yesterday.  It all follows a similar path - somebody sees it, really loves it, and buys it down the line (often as a gift).  I wish I could figure out how to make this happen more often -- or grease the wheels.  Whats the secret?

FINALLY have our new TIVO all settled.  What a drama and ordeal.  New machine giving me fits, but all it requires is patience, and 100 tries.

I guess the radius gym is on the same path.

The week got better as it went on.  Breakthrough with Story Disrict designs was major.

Fun to see MJ, and coffee at Soho.

tiny speckles of spring are arriving.

feeling less bogged down, which is always a good feeling.

Wednesday, February 3, 2016

Rainy day.  MJ was suppossed to come in this afternoon, and that has been delayed until tomorrow.

Weekend turned out well.  Eclairs came out great.

ha - feeling blah, so I'll just write more later.
