I have been in my studio this weekend working on a ukulele case – yes, that is what I said. Who plays ukuleles, you ask – well apparently a whole lot of talented folks, giving me a bit of commission work. Anyway, I am pleased with the results, although not completely sure it is exactly what the client had in mind… It is quite striking, but maybe a little less androgynous than what was expected from me. I haven’t a good space for flat work and my neck is cursing me. I will not paint the next one in my studio. It would be done yesterday if I didn’t stop nearly every 20 minutes to straighten up and walk it off – and have a snack and coffee. Once disturbed from my task, it seems as though coffee is the answer to all ailments.
It was 98 degrees in the shade at my house today. Really. I will not be going anywhere for the holiday. Nothing will take me from the coolness of my home to face the sticky heat outside, sticky hot- seats in my car and the scorching sun baking me inside of my car like a calzone in a brick oven. It’s popsicles and a movie at home with Baby.
