Here is the snake monster finished!
And his frightened victim about to be bit in the face. Something fun in the woods by the driveway.
I went to Asheville this week and stayed over with a friend. We shop and then we stop at the Grove Park Inn for a drink at the Edison bar….mainly for the view.
The drinks are of course over priced and often we will have a bit of something to eat…just a snack. I think that there can be a problem when chefs are left unchecked. Would you believe that they removed a decent home made potato chip plate with cheese, served warm, only to replace it with complete confidence because it is now printed on the menu, tepid stale homemade chips with chopped beets that appear to have mayonnaise stirred in. The mound of purple and pink sat in the middle surrounded with limp chips. I think we are going to find another place to have that drink.
The view from my bedroom yesterday morning looked like this.
From there off to Trader Joe’s when it opens at 8 am and then home by 10:30. I took a bucket to put bottled water in so I could fit in lots of flowers from TJs. Here they are on the table and should hold up through the art group meeting here on Sunday.
There is nothing, absolutely nothing that lifts spirits like bunches of sunflowers and Eucalyptus.
The latest work on Driveway Messages are now framed behind glass and ready to show Art Group.
Also this week I returned to the Specimen Journal….Here is a catch up on that as well.
This last page appears to be some sort of record keeping of a hatch happening near the water. So the next several pages will be about the things he spots around the water….including some of my favorites like the water bug.
Now I am headed back into the studio to make the leather journal covers for a class in Australia. In Asheville I found the best worn looking pig skin for them.
I think that is enough for now. Back to work.
