Well, I hope all of you have wonderful plans for this Memorial Day weekend. For some, it kicks off the summer (for others, it kicks off the fall and/or it's not an actual holiday in your country... hahaha). My Lovely and I are making a trip up north to a cabin on an island on a lake... to talk with friends, BBQ, canoe and just relax. I'm looking forward to it immensely.
I have been busy here at the mill getting my paintings together for the First Friday Artwalk at the Sylvia Kania Gallery here in Portland, ME coming up June 5th. I will have 4 paintings up and here are three of them. This series (which I've mentioned in past posts), is finally complete and it is entitled: Bonny, Clyde and the Reaper. Stop on by if you're in the area and take a look at all the wonderful work!
I have discovered a wonderful online stationary store here recently that I just had to tell you all about. Old School Stationers is based out of the other Portland (OR), and they specialize in cards and wall prints. Most, if not all, of these are letterpress and they're all definitely to die for folks.

And let's conclude with a little humor, shall we? I just a read the following headline: Snake Wasn't Used As School Jump Rope. Upon reading further, I discovered that at a school in Pittsburgh, PA, a high school student "swung around a snake from a biology class but didn't use it as a jump rope as police at first claimed." Did the student feel bad for the snake and refrain at the last minute from swinging it, to jumping it? you ask... Uhm, no. Apparently, the snake wasn't long enough to jump rope with. WHAT?! What? First of all, why was the snake even out? Where was the teacher when he took it out? And what would possess anyone to swing a snake around?! His parents are in for a tough go with that one. Whew. Good times.
Until next time: unpleasant dreams
