of flowers and gargoyles...

it's tuesday and that meand two things - it's actually monday to me, as monday is my day off, and LOST is on tonight-( pretty much my only reason for getting out of bead on tuesday.) i have no idea what i am going to do when this show ends in a few weeks!!! aiiigghhh!!

had a lovely weekend - the weather in nola has just been superb. could not ask for better.



on saturday night we went to my friend, w's poster show at capdeville. it's funny, you see these posters all over town for live music - and they are usually very cool posters ( and now i know why) but you never really think, wow! i wonder who made that?! well, now you know...




on sunday we ate breakfast at panola street and then took a little drive through uptown, just appreciating the spring beauty. and we took these in two seperate locations....



cool. creepy. awesomeness.

monday i spent in le studio. playing. experimenting. goofing around. working. pick a word. i have been working hard to improve my collage skills...




but, truthfully, i am wondering if i am barking up the wrong tree. maybe it's because i thought that this would be easy? maybe it's because it takes me sooooo long to make one piece? or maybe i am just waaaayyy to particular - and that is why it takes me sooooo long to make one piece? i am fairly happy with the way these turned out.... but...well, maybe i have been learning so much; teaching myself new techniques;reading so many articles and such; that i just need to take a step back. i don't know. the confidence is not at 100% this morning. maybe i just need a day NOT to look at my work. come back tonight and see it with fresh eyes. i don't know. i need to think on this a little while...


well, it's time for me to motor this morning. so happy tuesday everyone! and for those of you getting lost - namaste!

Great photos - love the posters and your collaging pics. You probably just need a break. Don't be so hard on yourself.
