Slingshot.



36" x 48" on wood! That's right.... I've decided to start painting on wooden box panels, and I'm so happy with the results. I've switched paints as well - from regular watercolor gouache to "acrylic gouache" which, before going into Artists & Craftsmen (the new art supply shop on North Ave.) I had no idea existed. It's just a tiny bit more opaque & seems to stay wet a little longer, and is still the matt finish I like. I guess it pays to do your research, huh? Has anyone else used this? Am I committing a paint sin here? Possibly. But, well, it looks really nice on wood.

Other things accomplished this weekend:
- Watched an entire season of The Wire
- Watched Labrynth for the first time ever (yeah, i don't know. I just never did, okay?)
- Visited the library. Got new books out AND saw the Golden Books original artwork show. Don't Miss it!!!
- baked
- snoozed in bed for exceptionally long periods of time. Spectacular.

Happy Monday to All,
and Happy Birthday, to Al. (assuming you all read this monday)

wait- Labrynth AND Golden Books???
NO way!! I just asked my mom to dig out all of my old books for the sprout.

Nothing's better then gratuitous shots of a leather clad David Bowie's crotch and Little Golden Books... sigh...
