01/13/2006: "Zippity Do Dah"
Well, I’m feeling better and leaving for Anchorage for the weekend. My sister in Texas is visiting my sister in Anchorage and my cousin is back from college so we’re going to have a big shin dig.
In other news, I have to pick up my prints from the print shop…I should have calculated what it was going to cost ahead of time…it’s way more than I expected but now I’ll have smaller sizes to offer. I’m thinking of doing away with the whole “limited edition” thing for some of my images because I’m unclear on how "editions" work with one image in 3 different sizes? Later I'll email people who wanted to know when I'd have prints available.
What else? I have done a very small bit of painting the last couple of nights working on pieces in the “in progress” gallery (I'll update that soon). I think I “mostly” improved things except for one new lazy eye. Oh, and I just found out that plans have been approved to put a zip-line in at my favorite hiking spot, the historic Treadwell Mines area a couple blocks from my house (where I've taken a lot of photos. I’m very very very bummed about this.
“As proposed, a tour would consist of transport across the channel from Juneau to the site, where guests would board six-wheel all-terrain vehicles up the Treadwell Trail, en route to the aerial-cable starting point. Guests would glide along a series of zip lines and sky bridges and view sites along the aerial course with guides pointing out historic relics below.”-Juneau Empire
Now the place will be overrun with noisy, yapping tourists...Treadwell is on Douglas Island so it's always been a locals only kind of refuge...Blah Anyway, I'm sorry this “artist” blog has been so boring and un-artsy lately...is an artist still an artist when they aren’t really making art anymore?
