Summer in the south…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 9:33 am

Good morning readers.

Summer is in full swing here in the southland. Baby ducklings are everywhere, the Gardenias are in full bloom and the AC is blasting.

I don’t know about you all but It seems like the summer is just flying by. I had so many projects that I wanted to work on before the start of the new school semester. Which, by the way, is just 7 short weeks away. (Ack!) Next semester I’ll be at the art center full time for my classes. I’ll be taking drawing, pottery, computer graphics and water color painting. Sounds like I’m going to art camp instead of college doesn’t it?

Besides battling fleas on the critters, I’ve been taking drawing lessons and preparing for teaching an upcoming class in digital photography as well as kids art camp classes at the Contemporary Art Center. I’ve been wanting to teach a digital photography class for a while and just lucked into the opportunity.

I got this awesome piece of lime green cowhide  with an Ostrich skin texture off of Ebay recently. I’m planning on making a few limited edition Chameleons with it as well as using it on a few book projects.

Everything seems to have settled down nicely after the server upgrade. You may have noticed that there are some odd characters in some of the older posts. This is due to the upgrade of Wordpress. I was running a very old version and when it upgraded in the new database it added the funky characters that you see. I have no idea why but they are there. I will be cleaning them out of the pages but will probably leave them in the older posts as it would take forever to clean them out of over 500 posts. 

Of note…

If you’re a member of the forum, check out the upcoming ATC swap hosted by forum member Cathryn in the swap section. Members will be swaping cards with a picture of some of their work and information about themselves. It’s a good way to get to know each other. Signups end on July 9th and you’ve got plenty of time to work on them before they are due.

I hope everyone has a great day!
