The Final Brian Photo.

Taken above Kent State University's Downtown Gallery. Evidently the Obama folks are renting the space above the gallery.

Don't forget to vote!

Here it is!

My new beauty. It's a Canon PowerShot SD 790 IS. It's nice. I like it.

Today's Brian photo.

I wonder if this is Brian's way of telling me that he's having trouble coming up with photos to take? No worries, Brian, my new camera should arrive tomorrow!

Anyway, this image is of a work in our School of Art Gallery, where the current show is "Call and Response", curated by painting professor Gianna Commito. It is titled, not surprisingly, "Drawing a Blank", from 2008, by Columbus artist and professor Suzanne Silver.

Thanks to Brian,

our fantastic School of Art tech, I have a picture today. I spent the day mixing/cleaning/pulling my hair out in Kent's large scale enameling facility which was in need of a little TLC. I'm not super confident about all that goes on down there, because I am the utter opposite of a 2-D artist (large scale enameling is generally used for large, 2-D painterly enameled works) so I'm a little behind the 8-ball in preparing to teach it to my class, but I'm getting there.

Technical Difficulties

So "Daily Photo" will be experiencing a temporary outage, as my camera was stolen yesterday and I have not purchased a new one yet. Here's hoping that that renter's insurance we've been payin' is gonna pay-up!

Spoon Rest.

Because spoons get tired.

Newest acquisition in my quest to transition my kitchen to shades of light green and aqua, with red touches. From StudioElan on Etsy.

He hates that I do this.

N. had to submit a photo of himself in his studio to the faculty show at the University of Akron, which I took, and since I forgot to take any other photos yesterday, guess what yesterday's daily photo is!

Have I ever mentioned

that I married a Texas alum? This means that even though he was an art major, and displays no real interest in any sporting events, we have to watch Texas beat Missouri (my home state, though not my alma mater) and Oklahoma whenever possible. Which they did last night, and a couple weeks ago--respectively.

shoe news.

Got these shoes at Gabriel Brothers (a TJ Maxx type store, but one step down) for $7! Me like.

Paper Wings.

Found this little moth today. It must have come in on my rubber tree plant that I recently moved inside from the front porch.

A bit of autumn.

The colors are coming!

I totally made a video! All by myself! (well, I mean, picasa was a big a help) but no person had to help me!! I'm so proud!

In response to a request by Arthur Hash, the above video is an overview of how I construct a tab-fit copper ornament. Enjoy. And if you have any problems with it, I'm not sure I want to know.

For all you Kent State Art People.

You should have no trouble recognizing this *lovely* campus building.

Goodyear Heights Metro Park

Took a walk this morning. This park always looks so nice in the morning.

Seconds after this, there were sparks everywhere.

But it was OK, the torch just sparks sometimes.

I like seeing hot air balloons.

Up on Etsy.

I added a few enameled ornaments (plus some copper ones) to my etsy shop today.

Sunday at the sale.

One of my wall pockets on my new fabric display panel. I'm pleased with the display changes we made (see above photo), though we're not done yet!

Did I mention how glad I am that I finally had a good show? Well I am!

Under (my) big top.

oops, missed Friday! *ashamed face* :-(

Shocking and so unlike us.

N. and I headed off Thursday night for another 600 mile drive across country. This time to the Shaw Art Fair in St. Louis, where I was pleasantly surprised by my performance (Finally! It only took a year!).

We're gettin' somewhere.

I like these pretty well, so I don't think the whole enameling thing is a lost cause. Now we'll see if they sell...
