Clear The Air

Here's a sample of the necklaces I'll be dropping off at Lenny & Me very soon. I need to package them and then finish some brooches, then it's all ready to go. Better work on that before I head out to see Dropkick Murphys, Against Me! and Off With Their Heads.

go go go go go go

Ok, maybe a black and white studio shot is dumb because you can't tell what color the canvas is, but hey, it looks cool. It's in progress anyways, which by the way, is taking forever. This is part of a diptych and I really wish I had two easels! After really seeing and studying the texture on a Jasper Johns piece at the Art Institute I'm really not happy with this background, I need to push it further. I got some weird palette knives at the hardware store today so I can play around with paint application.

I got a "thanks but no thanks" for an installation proposal I sent in to a bar for their gallery window. I was pretty bummed but I need to keep working and moving along. The new Red City Radio album is called, "The Dangers of Standing Still" and I've been sort of feeling that way lately. Must keep working, must keep trying. Also have fun going to shows and hanging with my friends.

Circles 'round the Moon

I can't wait to get a new camera (hooray tax refund!). But till I can make a decision on what to get you all need to still deal with these mediocre photos.

Pendants ready for bails

Spinning in Circles is a Gateway Drug

I love using lyrics or song titles when I can't come up with my own blog title. I'm so original!

Good news, you'll soon me able to get my jewelry at a store right here in Chicago. I'll update as soon as I drop the goods off. I ordered a bunch more supplies today so it might be 2-3 more weeks until stuff is done.

40 degrees in Chicago in February! Perfect time to do some spray painting out on the back deck and not freeze my ass off!
