8"x8" canvas pub sign design, in a somewhat primitive style.  One Christmas finished and delivered.

Getting ready for Christmas (which doesn't seem at all only two weeks away!).  A little making, a little vintage shopping.

When the post office disappears, or becomes too exclusive for regular guy, every day use, I'll certainly miss sending and receiving things like this.

I made some Halloween-themed atcs for a swap (not this one though; it went to a personal friend), for which I never received anything in return; and from one participant, not even acknowledgement of my cards.  If this is the way of swaps these days, they're not for me.  

Tony was in Tulsa for a PA convention, so I booked a charming 1920s oil baron's home turned into a B&B, for one night and joined him.  We always enjoy Tulsa, it's visually stimulating.  And the foliage was beautifully aglow with autumn colors.

A few days after, I joined a local book club for their jaunt in a cemetery, experimenting with the "night portrait' setting on my camera.

Autumn events are lining up, despite summer continuing to blaze down upon us.   Looming deadlines, fresh opportunities, and a delivery of new art supplies all combine to stimulate creativity.  While considering how to complete my piece for OVAC's big event, 12x12, I've begun toying with other ideas, just to see what happens.
This morning I played with this:
Time will tell where it goes.

After introducing my summer camp kids to atcs, my own interest has rekindled, and there may be some tiny art card projects in my near future.  Is in any wonder, when the children demonstrated such creative vision?

As for body painting, most of my upcoming events are private, but you will be able to find me Sept. 17 at Oklahoma City Community College, for the LifeSaver 5k run.  I'll be gone by 11 am, so make sure to come out early, have some exercise, enjoy the festivities, and get your body decorated for the weekend.

Nearly Four Months.....

Yes well, what is my defense?  None really.   Just doing stuff, and - since early June - trying to keep cool.  This heatwave drought thing has long since lost its glamour, I can tell you.  Back in the halcyon, mild days of spring, I painted an octopus on a face, and I liked it.
And I visited the nymph fountain at Will Rogers Park.  It's one of my favorites; I wish sculpture like this hadn't fallen out of favor, because it would be lovely to see more such creations as public installments.   

Tony and I enjoyed a too-brief season of al fresco dining in our private Magnolia Room.  *wistful sigh*   Perhaps we can revisit it come autumn.....

There were also trips to lakes and rivers, the OKC zoo, an extensive and magnificent iris garden, and (of course) art.   More very very soon....

Sit, Stay, Art! was a successful event in support of Pets and People Human Society.  For a one-night show, the crowd was epic, and a great many pieces of art were sold.
Both my pieces sold, and I was more than happy to help the animals.  Looking forward to the next one.

There was also a quick jaunt to Kansas City with Jeri, to see the Parlotones and some snow.  There was bowling at Red Pin, a Thunder Game, and some planning for the summer time.
A lovely Saturday morning kayak outing on the river just before the cold gloomy weather returned, and some new necklaces to be offered at "A Jeweler's Art" on the Paseo, just in time for this Friday's gallery stroll.

Yes, it's been a month.... sue me.  I've been busy.  Some kayaking, some art, some more art, some bicycling, some art.  Photos soon, be patient.
