While her mother took a conference call from home the other day, I had the pleasure and privilege of watching baby Nora. She posed for me primarily in this position. I tried to get some good shots of her little feet, her sweet little hands and fingers, and her ears, but I didn't want to disturb her sleep to reposition her, although it's not as easy as one might think to wake a baby determined to sleep. She's a peach, all right.
I just can't seem to take good pictures of my art, though. Here's one that I finished this past week. It was supposed to be 20 x 20, but it's really more like 19 x 19. I have discovered that canvas shrinks more in one direction than the other. So the finished dimensions are usually a crapshoot.
Have any of you been inundated with Chinese or some kind of oriental writing as comments on your blogs? Some have "Michael Jackson" written in English; I have translated a few of the first ones to make sure I wasn't deleting a legitimate comment, and they dealt with male sexual enhancement products. Does anyone know what is going on, and how to stop it?
Have an art-filled week, everyone.
