Right now I'm really tired as we have been working like madmen to get our floor ready for our thrift store. The roof was leaking which made the retro 70s goldenrod carpet smell like a mildew factory. Fortunately, Pete and his crew pulled it up and out of the store. Then we had to scrape the glue off the floor. That took two days. The floor was finally ready to paint today.
Seriously, we gould just sit back on our butts and let Pete and his crew do it. They are getting paid after all. But, we probably wouldn't get into our store by the New Year, if we waited for them.
So far, our building has no air and no toilet. The toilet was suppossed to be put in today. The crew has been telling us that it will be put in today for weeks now. It's a little frustrating. It's either walk to Kmart or pee in a cup. You can probably guess which one I chose.
Sorry to be gross.
Here's what I've been working on in the studio this week.
It's made of wire and paper mache.
I started working on the record mandalas quite awhile back and figured it was time to get them done. I like to use leftover paint as much as I can. I used the pink from the papermache dress form. One record bowl is I am Woman by Helen Reddy and the other is Neil Diamond's Jonathan Livingston Seagull . They were meant to be experiment for the record bowls, but I think they will get to stay as mandalas.
I've been working on this altered book for years. It's time I get this baby finished. I will have to show you more of the pages next week.
Until next time,
