New Project
Ok, still no pictures. Hopefully by the end of the week.

I just started a new project (do I hear groans out there???? Yes, I know, I need to FINISH a few things. The new project is making a data base of my books so I quit wasting money on ones I already have. Also, then I will be able to look at the list and see where I have it (sun room, studio, dye studio, etc) since I can never find the one I want when I need it.

Anyway, I had placed an order with Amazon some time ago and one of the books was back ordered, and back ordered, get the picture. This is the second time Amazon has done this, kept me hanging on for months waiting for a book. Both times I got tired of waiting and went to other sites to obtain the book at the same price or less. This time it was a book called: Dreamings: The Art of Aboriginal Australia, edited by Peter Sutton and published in 1988. It's a large "coffee table" book and it is luscious. I haven't had the opportunity to go through the entire book yet but I find myself wondering why the Aboriginie's use dots. It's all dots. And then I start thinking "beads....yes, this would work very nicely in beads." And no, I would never copy someone else's work but there is no reason I can't take my own design and translate it into dots using beads, is there? I mean, Seurat certainly didn't originate the idea.

I can't try it right now as I DO have several things on the burner right now (surprise, surprise) but I am going to make a note of it.

Also received a book today called "Making Love with Light" by John Daido Loori. It isn't what I was expecting. I thought it was more or less an instructional book on using light more effectively in photography. Instead I received a lovely book of fabulous nature photography with brief musings and, while it isn't what I was expecting I am actually quite delighted with it.

Ok, now back to straightening up the studio, cataloging the books I come across and trying to find the $#%@##%@ soldering iron I bought!

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
