Pottery Barn catalog nearby, and an ashtray with butts. These are pages from the catalog, the blue ink, used cigarette filters, and an ink pen. Recycling? Yes. And no clean-up!
These are some of the pages--I omitted the pole-dancing (actually, beam-dancing) woman. I'm not sure using a catalog in this way is okay but it has my name on it (and I like their products). I'll call this "The Blue Women of (my town)" or "While You were Away." DWR, Frontgate--I get all the catalogs.
Hmmm...........homemade recycled Holiday gifts for friends; everyone gets a catalog with surprise pages.

Saturday, September 11, 2010
If I disappear for a while, I can probably be found in the chaos of my workshop. I'm doing that last ten percent of work on several paintings because I will be exhibiting new works at MacCallum More Museum & Gardens beginning October 1. The exhibit will include works by sculptor Terry O'Hose; meet-the-artists reception will be Saturday October 9, 7 to 9 p.m.
Some pieces are out being matted and framed; some pieces need varnish (that's done on the back porch of the workshop); some pieces will be framed by me when the frames arrive on Tuesday (that's done on the guest house floor).
Also, workers will arrive Monday to paint our tin roof and power wash our house, guest house, and workshop. I'll need to be careful walking in and out of doors.
I was invited to exhibit paintings at the Arnold Library in South Hill VA; older works have hung there since September 1.
On October 2--after the Library exhibit is dismantled and the MacCallum More exhibit is hung--I might have a straight shot of Jack Daniels or Maker's Mark.
I no longer dream of being organized; the last-minute method somehow works for me.
