So I think yesterday was one of the most productive art days all summer. Sad that today is the last DAY of summer. And I’ll be at school for the whole morning. Oh well. At least I know I can still do those monster days. (because I’ll be doing lots of them this year…)
What did I do? I traced Wonder Under…for HOURS.
The cats love this part of the project. I personally do not so much love their involvement, since it is mostly their fluffy butts that are involved.
Sometimes I have to push or pull them, or pull things out from under them.
So while I’m being thankful that this cat is still alive, I’m also cursing her existence. Or at least her existence on the light table.
She might be cursing me a bit as well.
Really, I spent a lot of time with the cats yesterday. Wonder Under is a fascinating thing. Plus light emanating from tables. Which might be a thing if it were cold out, but it’s not. I have a fan pointed at the light table, and they don’t generally like fans. Except for yesterday. Yesterday fans seemed OK.
So did laundry baskets…
And really, just staring at Mom on a regular basis and meowing plaintively because I am so obviously ignoring their asses.
I traced for over 7 hours yesterday…I’m 8 1/2 hours in, I think. I’m in the high 600s, so I’m only halfway. THAT is the part that sucks. That and the fact that I might run out of Wonder Under. Sigh.
I’m four yards in? I think?
This one doesn’t have quite so many tiny pieces as the last one. And it has about 700 fewer pieces as well, which is a good thing. I might actually finish it in time.
Which reminds me, I’m picking the others up from the photographer today. I think. After school. And then tracing for another (insert number of hours here).
Girlchild leaves tomorrow morning. Early. That’s a hard one.
She’s leaving so early because she’s doing orientation for the incoming freshmen. It sucks that she’s not around to help the first few days of school for the first time in like 5 years. I can’t persuade the boychild to do it. Not sure I blame him.
OK. School first. Then art. Then family.
(Apparently Pandora has decided I need some rap to start the morning. She may be right…)
