I love writing. I miss it. Baby happened August 25, 2010, hence the hiatus.
Since my last post, I have learned a lot of valuable skills that will serve my family well in a post-apocalyptic world, like embroidery and wine blogging in haiku. You have no idea when a fume blanc poem or elegantly-stitched throw pillow might save you from doom.
I have also learned a bit about photography. I love it because it’s an art form I can practice while sitting around on a Sunday afternoon watching my son eat chili. Check out this rad chili montage:
There you have it. I hope to post more ARTS soon. Until then, check out this owl I made that I entered into the Bennett Martin library’s “Lincoln at Night” show last summer. I was not going to enter but my brilliant friend Zeljka Hassler convinced me to over drinks at Barrymore’s. The conversation went something like this:
ME: But it’s not perfect, I can do better if I had more time, it has glue all over it.
ZELJKA: Have you read Fifty Shades of Grey? That book has glue ALL OVER IT!
I conceded and the owl became the hit of the show’s 3 and under demographic, who aren’t much for fine art photography and didn’t even notice the glue.
