52 Card Pick-up & Envelopes Filled with Glitter

Time for a little catch-up. A good 1/3 of my materials from my studio are on the living room floor. Luckily, we have room for a two man tent on the living room floor. In the queue, first thing, are the stained sheets of "faux alien skin" that need a special clear coating that Doc was going to help me with, but I crashed out and it didn't happen. It is too windy to do it outside, or even out in the studio at this time. So the art queue is at a dead stop. I continue to line up projects with their assigned boxes of needed materials, it's just that the stained sheets of paper need to be done first because they are fragile and need to be used or stored away as quickly as possible, which is why they were moved to top priority. I wasn't aware this would need to be done until I was deep into what began as an impulse project.

It turns out that Doc is impressed with Stick, and wants me to paint more. Maybe make a potted garden. To that end, he has asked that I not decorate Stick any further until I have painted a couple others and determined if, when displayed together, the paint isn't enough. There is still the option of making Stick the King of the Potted Garden and continuing the decoration. He's got his sights set on an installation of Sticks. Since my other installation is going nowhere right now, I'm hep to his idea. I've gotten more than I wanted from Stick so far. The video of me painting him was perfect because of the cats' cameos. Stick looks great. I couldn't ask for any more from Stick. So, creating friends for him might be interesting. We'll see. We have a harvest coming up in about 8 weeks. We will be leaving all of the stalks in the pots and harvesting them from the pots, rather than just cutting the whole stalk down and hanging it. So I will have several more Sticks. Decisions can be made then.

Doc and I still have not done my fall photo shoot outside. This weekend it was far too windy. I still have the set up. The wheelbarrow standing up and a "Grecian" pot, with mulch spread around rather thick. I'm going to put it to Doc this way: either he can take the pics, or I can pay a beginning photographer $50 to do it, and he will own the rights to the photos. Doc is adamant about me owning all the rights to all of my images, so he won't go for that. He's even been known to go through folders of my old cam images, filling out metadata with my copyright info on each image. Because there are thousands and I get tired of playing catch-up with metadata. So, the shoot should take place some time this week. I was looking for a pair of arm warmers for it, because the flannel I've chosen to wear has the sleeves cut off, and I don't want to have to retouch my scars. I have a pair of nice black ones, but they are short, don't even come up to my elbows. All I could find were "goth" styles with skulls and spiders all over them; heavy wool knit in new fall colors; and running/biking/dancing styles. None of them what I need. I may have to call on Hot Topic for this.

Ugh. Doc has stuff all over his bed, so he is sleeping out here today. No TV. No noise. He's going to complain about my typing soon, so I will write more tonight, after he has left.
