Time to take a couple trips downtown to unload a bunch of pieces to the gallery. It will probably take three trips in the Scion... I'll have to borrow a truck to take the 7' 4" pillar there.

The opening is on Friday. My family is in Seattle so they won't be there. I hope a few folks I know make it... blah, blah, blah.

Quick sketch of the realty lady that has been showing houses. She is showing us houses that are way out of our price range, and wants us to lower the price on our place. So far nothing I've seen beats the house I live in now. The only reason I would move is so I can have an actual studio space to work out of.

I saw the card that is being mailed out for the show... Who ever laid out the images decided to crop out each of the tiles then set them up as if they weren't framed. I was a bit pissed off. Instead of leaving the piece in its true form, this person felt they should be able to alter it the way they liked. If and when someone goes to the show, they will see different work. Also the card said my work was face tiles and ink line drawing. The tiles with line drawings aren't ink. The lines are formed by scratching through white slip to allow the black clay underneath to show through... I guess I should have been there to clarify prior to the cards being made. Oh well. at least I have a show.

Working for the boss, working for the wife, and working to fill space. All work and no play...

Almost finished with another group of tiles. Think I'm going to put this idea to rest for a while. I need to make some more sculptures and a whole bunch of drawings. I will get started on a painting for the Baby Bar soon. Time is moving quickly better not waste too much sitting idle at this machine...

More tiles for those of you who care. The days are counting down quickly till I have to set up my stuff. The opening will be on April 4th. I need to get in touch with Dennis to see if there is anything else the gallery needs from me. I finished my artist statement and made business cards. Hope this thing goes off better than the one at the gallery in October.

Boredom has kicked in. Think I'll go for a walk in the woods. Later I should draw and make something out of clay... we'll see.

My mind is locked up. I need help writing an artist statement, I can make the stuff I just can't write about it or me.

Another wasted weekend. I did take a couple long hikes through the woods that were rather refreshing. Finished two more pieces for next months show (less than 4 weeks till set-up). Hope it goes well. The wife is at another friend's house partying (again). I should make some food for me and the boy... Later

The weekend is almost here. I think I'll dust off the bike and go for a ride. Tomorrow I'll stumble around from gallery to gallery, maybe drink a couple beers, and visit with friends... Tonight, I draw.

Her family is still here... I think I'm going insane. I made a few more frames and drew some this weekend. Tomorrow back to work and deal with earning a pay check.
