07/06/2005: "Eyes are the windows of the soul!"
Well, I think I *finally* figured out how to calculate all the various receipts I've collected for (very tardy) 2003 and 2004 taxes. For one thing, if I had an invoice from DickBlick for example, I'd have to seperate out the easle (studio furniture/tools) from the canvases and paints (production materials). It got very complicated. So, I bought one of those large calculators that print out all your sums onto a receipt. It made adding it all up rather fun.
I hope to use the calculator for creating sales receipts too but I'd like to get a rubber stamp made that has my business name and logo etc. but I don't have a logo yet. I want something simple... I was thinking of using 3 fiddlehead ferns for the design...I love natures spirals plus I've used them in some of my paintings and they're probably more acceptable than a set of boobies.
I'm also back to painting. I've repainted the woman in the yellow field and now she has her eyes open. I'm not sure if I like it; everytime I see her now she kind of weirds me out. I tend to always paint my women with their eyes closed. I'm not sure why that is as eyes are easier than hands. Any thoughts? (I just love being psychoanalyzed) in fact, I'll offer one batch of Dave's famous spiced chocolate chip cookies to the best interpretation. kidding!
