Fall in the Air, 2007, Oil on Panel, 12x16
For some reason my stats have risen quite a bit lately. Some of the hits are coming from other blogs and repeat visitors have also increased, which is very nice. And it seems like a few people have recently "found" me and are reading through the archives (very flattering). But many of the unique visitors come to me by way of searches and there have been some really good ones lately.
-squeeze down by tracey
This one made me kind of nervous, so I never did check why they ended up here. I do take comfort in the fact that my name is spelled incorrectly, so it's probably not someone actually looking for me.
-where does the seam go on a girl scout sash
I suppose I mentioned that I mistakenly sewed patches onto my daughter sash, and the sash was upside down, with the seam at the top. Sheesh! I take comfort here too that another mother was also confused.
-tracy the male model
This one left me speechless. And a little creeped out.
-how to become a working artist without a degree
I imagine this one came to me because of the working artist phrase in my profile. However, maybe it's a good time to let y'all know that I never did actually get my BFA. A combination of a nasty department head, excessive student loan debt and NO. MORE. MONEY. EVER. kept me from going back to get those last twelve credits. One lousy semester. However, UArts seems to think that I am a graduate since they keep sending me desperate requests for donations!
-pastel sketches of syringes
This one made me a bit nervous too. I can't imagine that ever being a topic here, so hopefully it was just the word pastel.
And of course the ever popular hits leading to a few posts I wrote about my son's dead hamster last year. These are always good, yet disturbing as well. America's hamster population clearly has some health issues.
-hamster lump chest
-how to cut hamsters teeth with clippers
-hamster bleeding mouth
-growth on hamster lip
-bumps on hamster back
I wish I could help these poor people and their hamsters but I am afraid that I have no information about these conditions. I can describe how to cut a hamster's teeth though if anyone needs to know. Really, it's one of my many skills. Read here about it. That post could be the best description of my present lifestyle ever, by the way. It pretty much covers everything.
