Leaving This Morning & Bob

Okay, I'm off again--this time to my much anticipated art show.  It's starting tomorrow at 3:00 till 9.   I think that it's kind of a preview party thing--I'm not sure. I used up my painted papers for more art pieces.  I did a couple of "praintings" with my prints--

 

And on the next one, I just cut up one of the papers that I had and just jumbled it around and then added collage accents.  I really liked the way it turned out, and it was very quick to do.



And I used the rest of the scraps of paper for this mirror--really fun!


Today we're going to set up our booth/tent, which I like to do--set up the day before, although the temperatures are going to be in the 90's with the high humidity.  But I'm trying not to complain.  I remember all of those very frigid winter days when I'd be blogging and longing for warmer weather--so here it is!  I'll try to check in with everyone when I'm gone too!

P.S. I haven't talked about Bob lately, have I?   Well, I wanted to tell everyone that he had his yearly check- up, and the Doctor found that his back molar was completely cracked in half   (poor thing)--now of course they have to watch what they give him to chew on.  Well anyway, yesterday he had to go to have the tooth extracted, but of course with a French Bulldog, nothing is easy. I guess the molar has 3 different roots, so they had to take it out in 3 parts, so that means he had to be put under with  anesthesia  (more $).  He was at the Doctor's most of the day, but he did come home last night--completely out of it.

Diane, I'm crazy about that first piece with the "Peace" sign!! Best of luck to you with your Art Show, you will do great your pieces are amazing. Love the mirror too!! I'm glad Bob's back home again, anesthesia can do a number on our animals, it's nice when the post-op side effect go away. I'm sure he's feeling a little more like himself this morning! Get well soon Bob!!

Beth said...

Poor Bob:( Once again I am amazed at the work you are producing. I love these. Good luck with the show and the heat. I don't know if you received my reply about the masa paper, it should be available at most art supply stores and mail order places. This came from Art Systems in Winter Park, FL. Your post on finding art supplies reminded me of the treasure I found on the curb in our neighborhood many years ago...big wooden picture frames. Take care.

Saschi said...

well diane ! of course your work is divine! your energy is so good diane! you always flow in a good direction. you should be proud!

as for my bob..... oh my poor bob! but at least his parents can afford to give him the treatment that he deserves. seeing bob with his clothes off is kinda strange, as he seems so human. he's dreadfully handsome.

Barbara said...

Hi, Have a great show ... and hope Bob is feeling better very soon.
Stay cool!
Best wishes,
Barbara

Megan Hoover said...

I always love looking at your creations! I'm sooo wanting to do a show but I'm too scared yet. I may email you to pick your brain a little about what to do, how to, etc. Your dog is so stinkin' cute...awe, his poor tooth!

Monica said...

poor Bob :(

Marlynn said...

LOVE, love, LOVE your featured art work, Diane! Poor, poor Bob. I do believe it hurts us more than them when these things happen. I hope he is feeling better. Oliver will be going home on Saturday! He has been a joy these last nine days. Hugs and best of luck at the art show!

Diane, your work is just amazing. There are so many gorgeous elements to it - I never get tired of looking at it. Poor little Bob - give him an extra hug from me. What a CUTIE! Theresa

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Have a fun and safe trip. I really like the one with your painted papers you cut up into pieces. It's a great example of geometric mixed media. I bet it sells right away, too.

I know you are gone, and I'm so sorry I didn't get here in time to wish you a great farewell, but I know you will do great tomorrow.

Stay cool (if possible) and have a great time. Thanks for the Bob update. Sounds like a real ordeal for the poor little guy. Glad to hear he's back home, even though he's groggy. Thought he might even be dressed in a hospital gown :>)

WrightStuff said...

Sending you good thoughts (and lots of punters!)
