rainy day

It's a rainy day today which is good because we really need it. I'm sort of in sync with the weather. I feel tired, lethargic, unmotivated. The little dogs are in their beds. Nothing else to do.

The little dogs belong to my sister who is in Chicago to 'be there' for her daughter who is running in the marathon today. 45,000 insane people athletes running 26.2 miles non-stop for absolutely no reason at all.

I'm sort of working on this model, the current 'botera' (my personal shorthand for botanica erotica). I thought it would be the next easiest one but it is being...difficult. I'm having a hard time converting the angle of the two dimensional photo into my three dimensional form. I think I might have approached it all wrong from the beginning. I already re-did the stacking of the layers once.

I flit between browsing the internet, writing this post, and working on the model. Sometimes I think I am making progress on the model and sometimes I think I'm just moving material around.


  1. you must be getting the rain we had yesterday. got 1/2. today, so far, just a tiny bit of drizzle. hoping for lots more.

    your model reminded me of turtle shells. big mama would be happy. :)

  2. I think the model is lovely and erotic...even if a little unfinished. You are an exceptional talent.

  3. You are moving the material around until the progress has been made that your subconscious has already figured out. Probably.
    So glad you're getting rain. I know how it feels to need it so badly and then finally get some.

  4. Yeah for the rain.....we could use some more too. But we just had balloon fiesta and now that it is over we can all send the positive vibes again for moisture......and pray the wind stops. Your piece is just taking it's time letting you figure it out.....and I'm sure you will. Oma Linda

  5. The news tonight said it's raining all over Texas--and that's a lot of state.
    It seems the dogs, at least, have the situation in hand. Or bed, as the case may be.

  6. The dogs are adorable and you're so good to take care of them.

    Yes, they're insane people!

    We needed the rain we've had. It's cozy. Why not relax for a day? You work so hard.

  7. Cute puppies! It might be insane, but I think that if I COULD run that far I WOULD. Ha!

  8. As someone who has been working with wax for some time, I often wonder what bad habits I've gotten into. I'm considering a change around to working in clay (either oil or water based) and then molding that for the wax. You know, doing a little due diligence and finding out just how of it is just moving stuff around.

  9. I know the feeling of working and working and wondering....what the hell am I doing?? Or where was I going anyway?? LOL
    Hugging you
    nice piece

  10. Awww, love the dogs. That's how things look around here about 80 percent of the time. :)


I opened my big mouth, now it's your turn.
