. . . forgot about batteries
I really was going to take pictures and post art and/or furniture today, but my camera ran out of batteries. . . I know I have some around here somewhere. . . I try to keep a lot of them on hand because that camera positively eats them. . . but I can't find them. . . I know they'll turn up when I quit looking for them. So instead I will post another junkyard find.
Today is the day that my garage, basement and house will be emptied of all painted furniture. If there's something I don't have done, I will go to the store to finish it. Mainly I have to put some doors and handles back on some things, probably touch-up a few spots that get bumped in the move, just generally clean some other things up. I went to the store yesterday to check it out. . . walls are up where they're supposed to be and they've been painted with the coolest greenish-blue color, with a splash of lime green on one wall. Zip has accumulated an interesting mix of furniture in a lot of different styles. If my house didn't already have enough stuff in it, I would be looking for a place to put an oatmeal chair and ottoman; a faux-bamboo game table; two modern Eames type leather and metal chairs; a tiny little stool that has been weathered and aged to perfection; a couple of crusty old urns, one of which has a darling bird nest in it; a beautiful oval mirror; a kick-ass dining room table with 10 or 12 chairs. I think there will be a blog for the store, so I will post a link to it whenever it gets up and running. If you're in the area, it would be fun for you to come and check out the store when it's open.
I also finished my 40a x 40 piece. And I am anxious to start on the next. It's funny how just a little positive reinforcement (like sales, for instance) can get you going again. I was supposed to show my art in the store, too, but at the moment I really don't have any pieces available. . .
