Went to the charity shop, senior Tuesday! Seniors get 30 percent off of every purchase so you can well imagine how crowded it is with white hairs and oldsters who can no longer keep up with hygiene. It could be intentional, the stinky folks nearly have the entire row of knick -knacks to themselves- I am talking poopy pants and stale urine wafting like waves of granite- smacking you right in the nose!
That is an effective way to make a broad sweep of personal space around you, so , yes, it could be a well thought out plan...
Driving back to the studio I stopped to take photo of Mojo Music Store , Mojo done gone, wind is the only thing playing the sky guitar these days.
Stopped again to photo my friend's big thing...He bought it years ago and there it stayed , next to the boat yard. Every now and then he would go down and ping it with a hammer just to hear it ring. I tossed a rock at it, in his honor, but it did not "ping" , it sounded more like "Dongthzstpp".
From there I went to the studio to stab California colors into something that may just end up becoming a shopping bag, or a hot pad holder, I don't know. I ran out of the color that I was using so had to improvise with some colors that I did not like but were in the same spoke of the color wheel _sort of. It may not work. Then we took a photo of all of us - artists getting together for a photo is truly like herding cats, artists are that way! This one looks OK, after about six tries to get all of us looking at the camera , at the same time.
Lorna, in front, long blond hair got a new dog last year, His name is Gilligan. He is a direct descendant of Winslow, who was the best studio dog in the universe . I LOVED that dog, I was his dog sitter when Lorna went diving .
I have not yet gotten to know Gilligan very well , He has a totally different temperament, shy, not as cool as his uncle or whatever the relationship was.
Anyway, nice to have dogs in the studio!
Tomorrow I am going out to Our Miss Stella's little gem of a house on the lake, We are going to be tying bows that will be used in a wedding later in the summer. Stella is doing the flowers and the fancy decorations stuff, because she has the best ideas...I may have mentioned that before
