Artsy Gemini's Crazy World: just finishing up on one order and starting another....

Artsy Gemini's Crazy World: just finishing up on one order and starting another....

just finishing up on one order and starting another....

I just finished up my latest art projects for singer 'Amanda Palmer' and Post-War Trade. I had fun designing and making some new items for her. I did more altered art mini lunch boxes with a different theme than last time, different color scheme. and than I also did some promo items also. now that these pieces are all packaged and ready to mail, I have moved on to work on a canvas that is done in the 'steampunk' theme. It is a multi-media piece with collage and 'chunky' aspects. I will post it when I have it totally finished. then I will try and finish a painting that I am doing for someone. staying busy between the art projects and working out at the gym.

just an update.........

hiya friends and fellow artists. thought I better check in and blog something, rather than waiting for six months and then feeling overwhelmed about what to say. along with being busy with the 'steam punk' journal, I have been working on another shipment of altered art mini lunch boxes for singer 'amanda palmer'. I am happy to have them done and ready to ship out. the last bunch I did was for the band that she sang in 'the dresden dolls'. now the group they put together (post-war trade) to sell great art items on, is focusing on just amanda. I also did some promo items for her and will upload them in my flickr. you can see the lunch boxes and other stuff on my flickr or the group is also on flickr. it has been fun coming up with ideas for her. I am also working on a painting for someone. they wanted a theme that is fun and funky, but it is also a little out of my comfort zone. I am much more comfortable on collage, drawing or acrylic painting on items, like saw blades or wood items. painting on a canvas is something I do only once in a great while. since the theme is abstract though, how can you go wrong. not being perfect or a little wacked is ok in the world of abstract. lol I will upload it when it is done. thank god there is not a deadline on it. I am fitting it in between several other projects.
bill, kryston and I planned on traveling to hayfork, our other home, and joining in on the big ball tourney fun. lots of people return for the softball games and seeing old friends. but of course our car chose this weekend to go kaput. we were disappointed to not get to see everyone! but I got alot done around the house and in my art room. we are still going to the gym alot, and bill was going so much that the staff decided to hire him part time to work there. he goes so often that he might as well work there. he goes 6 to 7 times a week. the kids and I go more like 5. bill has lost an amazing 80+ pounds and is still on a roll. I am lagging behind with losing about 50 pounds now. I am happy to say that I weigh less than my kids now. that was a blast to be able to say. tyler has been right on my tail though and getting back into good shape. he gets to run though, so I tell him it is not fair. the kids are busy with work and dating. tyler and megan are doing well. so I can happily say all is well..............til next time. ;0) sandy
