Quiet, 2008, Oil on Panel, 9x18
Same old, same old here. We survived the sleepover, my son is now officially a teenager and we are moving on from that particular milestone. He has been sleeping until noon each day this week though so I guess new milestones are on the way.
There has been way too much girl clothes shopping in the last few days. My daughters needed some spring clothes, new crocs, soccer shoes and other related accessories. Good times. Heh. I used to love shopping but somehow the kids have cured me of that and now it's just energy sucking, intelligence draining hard labor.
I have gotten very little work done this week and will definitely have to crank it into high gear Monday morning when the kids go back to school. I now have five weeks to get enough pieces together for the show in Hudson, not to mention getting new work to a a few of my galleries AND the Affordable Art Fair which is in mid-June.
The attic is coming along. On Wednesday a crew came and did the spray foam insulation. The attic temporarily looks like an English Tudor mansion.
Thursday, Tom and Matt worked on the outside of the new windows, trimming them up and they now look much better than all of the other old windows.
On Friday morning two (cute) guys came with sheet rock and carried 43 pieces (one at a time), up a ladder, onto the scaffolding and in through the middle window. Matt carried them inside and he and Tom got most of the ceiling up that afternoon.
PS. I have been trying to put this post up since Friday, lest you all think I am trying to bail on this blog. First I had trouble getting the photos posted and then I kept getting an error notice when I tried to publish the post. Not sure if it's our satellite connection which has been kind of funky lately, or blogger who hates me. Anyway, just so you know.
