New Art in the Works...

This past monday i went to visit my friend Greg in "almost hill country." Here is one of the longhorns and the new calf that was about 3 days old when i got there. cute, but still wild.
Greg warned me that the ranch would be getting rid of all the scrap metal, so if i wanted some better come and get it. So i did. He had saved me some rusted old fence-looking material. Today i started cutting one of the pieces into parts to make art. Here is what they look like now-stage 1. will post more as i work on them.

Took my parents to Fire Oak Grill on sat for dinner. It was really good~Britton-the owner added this lamp to the front window for the Christmas season. I think it's great! Had my dad pose with it for a picture. Very appropriate for the holiday season!
I just got back tonight from a visit to my friend down south/west. I'll post some of my scores tomorrow. got some good stuff to use in art~

This is my 199th post~one more to a milestone-yea, whatever.
Thought i would finally update-and yes i'm still alive.
this first picture is my recent trash find. It's going to be painted and made into a chalk or memo board- Then we come to the "Life of Riley" literally. This is Riley staking his claim to the bed. Don't let his size fool you-he can be mean-jeckyll/hyde-ish really. Had dinner with a few friends last week. Had alot going on around here, so haven't done much art and what i did, didn't take a picture of...but soon.

Not Much Art

As you can see from my posts/pictures lately there isn't much art. (if any) I get ideas, but step into the artroom and *poof* the desire leaves. So my goal before my christmas break from work is to clean the damn room so i can actually do something in there. I think the clutter is stopping up my mind. doesn't help that i managed to lose my camera chip somewhere between the car and the house. It was reallllly windy that day so it probably blew to kansas. I did start working on some wood blocks that i started in the spring-so hopefully can post those soon.
On a good note, i went w/my parents to a free dinner(that was actually good) and talk done by her Chiropracter. (where i will be going next wk) I won a "spa" doorprize-lotion/shower gel/soap/bath scrubbie so that made my night.
happy weekend !

A Day of Sharing Song

Lk Ludwig had the idea for us all to share favorite music-sounds that inspire. You can go to her blog to see what others have posted. What i listen to depends on my mood that day-too many to pick a favorite.
I've just posted a link to this: Mario Frangoulis
you tube video. I think he has a wonderful voice.
