Bright Idea ~ 1/1/01 ~ 7x9

The beginnings of my use of stencils, I think I got this particular stencil at a yard sale. I vacillate on what I think of using stencils...sometimes I like ‘em sometimes I hate ‘em. Any thoughts on the matter?

No Way Out ~ 12/26/00 ~ 5x8

These mazes date back to high school, doodling in class. I know this because I was looking back at a sketch book and journal from high school recently. Yikes! Lots of drawings of everything heavy metal.

A sad sad day in the neighborhood

Tendonitis Sidelines DiFranco For a Year

She built her name on incessant touring, but now medical concerns will keep Ani DiFranco off the road for a year. DiFranco announced that a severe case of tendonitis in her hands and wrists will force her to take it easy for the next 12 months and abandon all tour plans. She already sat out of the tour circuit for three months convalescing, but it wasn’t enough. A spokesperson reported that without rest, DiFranco’s injuries could become permanent. A West Coast tour was cancelled in order to give DiFranco’s hands the rest they need.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------At first when I read this I was distraught that the show I have tickets for was not going to happen. Then I realized (with help) that was horribly selfish of me. Imagine how this hiatus must feel for her. Yikes. I’ll be a wishin’ and a hopin’ that those hands and wrists get better as quickly as possible!

$15 Lamp

The time of day was not right for this shot, but here it is anyway. One time only deal. The lady in the doorway kept asking me what I was doing and if I was going to buy it. Nope, not at this time.
