Etsy and Art

My Etsy shop is up and running!
Feel free to take a look around :o)

To the left is a painting loosely called Waterfall.
I figured I'd include it to add some color to this post!

Have a good night!

I'll Give You Fish

After watching Rock Lobster I looked around and stumbled on "Give Me Back My Man." And I have to say I love LOVE this song! It is so bizarre and wonderful. This is a song I could (and probably will) listen to a million times over.

Rock Lobster!

My friend Dave linked me to this B52s video this morning and I really love it! It is so fun and quirky. I just wanted to share it with you and hopefully bring a smile to your face :o)



Everything bagels are so tasty. Lightly toasted with cream cheese.
Mmmm onion and poppy seed.

Have a happy morning/afternoon!

So much art, over so much time.

So, I updated my flickr account with about 25 pictures of art made throughout the last six years of my life. I am going to sell some of the pieces, most of them I think. But I also think I'm going to keep a few of them. Especially Skull. I really love that piece, I am really proud of it. Maybe once I do more oil work I'll be more willing to part with it, but for now I'll keep it. :o)

I can't remember what I properly named that piece. But the piece currently labeled Jesus (both big and small) was originally titled Philip. I am sure that Skull was some boys name, maybe Christopher. Well, either way it is art throughout the years, and art of various quality.

I do hope you enjoy it and have a good night :o)

[Skull is on the right, face is on the left. I really need to rename these guys...]

edited to include a link to my flickr art set!

November is approaching quickly and it is freaking me out. Time needs to slow. down.
This afternoon will be busy, setting up an area to take nice artwork shots then putting that stuff up on etsy. I need to earn some money if I want to keep going out with friends, if I want to dress up for halloween, and well, most importantly if I want to keep paying my credit card bill (and yes! I do want to keep paying that!)

I am always concerned about making money and needing a job. Though I know I am never concerned enough :o/ Or I get too concerned and it intimidates me so I don't get anything done.
Some days I really feel the worry and concern I push to the back of my mind. It doesn't feel good, but I need to learn to deal with it and really do something about it.

So today, I am putting art up on etsy, and going down the street to the pizza place to see if they need any help. And I'm going to keep hoping for the museum assistant job I recently applied to (and I'm going to study up on African Art!) Some days I feel responsible, some days I feel very irresponsible. A little break after graduation isn't horrible, but it has gone on long enough. I am anxious about money, and I just really miss work. I miss being in museums, I miss having really productive days. I like being part of a team, I like being part of something bigger, something that contributes. Soon, soon. I will make things fall into place soon. Think positively and act positively.

Have a good afternoon!

a poem, in the works

Medium Rare

Love me like a steak.
Tender, juicy,

You’ll be treated like a
cream puff,
delicate and sweet.

I go well with mashed
potatoes, pepper, and
sweaty onion-halves.

You pair nicely with wine,
crème fraiche,
salted caramel.

Handled wrong, we’ll
both be tough. But,
gristle can be flavor.

What do you think? It's fun how some poems are never really done. (Fun and sometimes frustrating...) I think I like it as is, but I'd love to hear any critique. Have a good afternoon!
