Oversleeping and Mental Fog

(copyright Anne Huskey-Lockard 2009, all rights reserved)
To my faithful readers---yes, I had said a few posts ago that I wanted to do a serious art post, that I would ask for comment on. And I still intend to do it, but someone was incredibly LAZY this morning and only is up now due to two unhappy parakeets wanting their cover off and letting me know. A grumpy "peep" was what awakened me, and I'm glad it did.
I am hoping that later in the day I can collect my thoughts enough to write what I wanted to previously---I should have just taken the time and written it then. In the meantime I can report that the canvas I was working on in bits and pieces is showing wonderful texture and I used a Jacquard powdered metallic with some GAC 200 to highlight some of the bits that stick up, and it is amazing! (and probably one of those things I won't be able to get a good pic of to post....)
The paper and gel medium are working well and I was able to start the form on a sheet of glass and then lift it and adhere it to the canvas. I did that before it was completely dry, so it would be flexible. So there is some art going on in my life right now! Thank the stars!
Unfortunately, I had to mow yesterday, so I am feeling it this morning.........would anyone like hay???? That's what I dealt with. That, and the realization that I am NOT completely back to my normal full-bore, 24/7 self......on that mower, things hurt.
I beg your forgiveness for this lousy start to the week but due to two meetings today, I don't have the computer time I would like and I know how fast I'll be moving in preparation. NOT FAST!
So at least there is sun today and I hope where ever you are, there is sun too; if not in the sky, in the form of creating something wonderful, experimenting with something new, a particular joy in your heart or just finding a zen moment to relieve stress and prepare you for art. It's our life, you know!

Take your time today - our body is marvelous at telling us when we've done too much. Patience has never been one of my virtues, and I just get so darned frustrated when I can't get the "normal" me back (as if anything about me were normal....). Enjoy the sun, the day ahead, and the people you meet on the way!

For Pete's sake, Anne, take it easy. I mowed similar "hay" Saturday and I know what a John Deere can do to a body. Only I broke a belt and had to finish with a push mower. Hot a pretty sight and I paid the price dearly. Yee Gads, I'm stubborn!

GAC 200 sounds like something my dogs would produce!!!

I anxious to see your latest piece. Since I don't know what you are talking about, I can't even begin to imagine it.

Off to re-organize my solder table...had to move it over the weekend and now it is time to put it back.

Not a pretty sight!

I have discovered that I am the MOST impatient PATIENT!!! I just think I should be well NOW and cannot understand the fatigue, brain fog, slow mobility..I mean, in my mind, it's been a long time since March 11th when I cracked myself up, so I should be WELL!!! LOL!!!
I am enjoying the fresh air--windows open (allergies on stand by!) and finishing a bit of computer work, then I might bake. Don't know.
And yeah---*normal* me? What's that??? HAHAHAHA!!!

Get your rear out here!!! Come see it in person! Photos only go so far with some of the subtle surface textures. I think you might enjoy playing with the products. I'll e-mail you something later about it.
And you telling me to take it easy and you're using a push mower???? HELLOOOOOOOO????? ;)
We are stubborn!

Me...Stubborn!?!? Never! ~8-)

I'm not wandering very far these days. We have an IRS audit next week and I'm still sorting thru the boxes and boxes of receipts, etc. I can NOT find the June 2007 bank statment or a 940 form. I wonder how much that will cost us!?!

At least you got out of bed, I stayed in mine for 48 hours. Relapse of West Nile Virus, oh vey! Missed my weekend play time in costume with spinning wheel. Boo hiss...

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Man, it's just been one of those weeks with the Universe.
Get this---the CT says there is nothing unremarkable* with my knee, the one I can't use.
Yeah. It's unremarkable that I can't BEND IT and it SWELLS......
I think we all need a vacation somewhere warm and without stress!
Any *Aye-aye's* for that????
