Gagging on Birthday Cake
Dynamic Duo, 2007, Oil on Panel, 12x16
Posting may be a bit sporadic for the next week or so. Things are incredibly hectic here as it is the last few days of school, sports and other activities are winding down. Plus I am still working on things for the show in July and tomorrow is the beginning of our family's birthday season. Due to poor planning by Doug and I (actually, it was no planning at all, heh), we have three birthdays, one per week, for the next three weeks. Hard to believe that I could get sick of birthday cake, but by July 5 it does happen. We used to alternate years for birthday parties, so they wouldn't all fall in the same birthday season, but we got off track last year and now we have two parties coming up, one involving ten tweens for a sleepover and the other is a torturous three hour party at a very loud and flashy roller rink for a dozen almost third graders (comes to a grand total of five birthday cakes). Although I don't drink alcohol, these are the occasions that make me wish for a few stiff drinks, not to mention a long vacation alone in Bermuda.
I will continue discussing gallery issues with the next post. Unless I am laying on a beach somewhere. Heh, as if.
