Hot Dark Nights...

Hello Lovelies!

Whew, I just wrapped up a hot, beautiful holiday weekend here at the Mill. Lobsters, cold beverages and laughs were to be had and it was wonderful. In honor of the nice hot summer weather here in the Northern Hemisphere, I have posted some newphotography to the shop. Take a peak:


That Cyclone photo is my new favorite I think.

I have had quite a bit of success here recently with my original paintings (the Seeds of Darkness portrait from last week has already sold), and so Iwill be listing more original work in my shop. Keep your eyes peeled for that. I will make announcements here too.

I did a little shopping over the weekend and my purchases were so funny (and so me) that I thought I'd share. Yes, that's a squirrel knife for camping, and a Hello Kitty makeup bag. And yes, I will use both. That's me in a nutshell Folks. Haha.


I have found a great photographer whose work I wanted to share. Debbie Carlos has done a lot of different types of photography, which I find refreshing, but my favorites (pictured below) she took at the Chicago Field Museum. Those birds? I love them.


And now I'm going to take you from classy and muted to crazy town. Stefan Strumbel's work definitely toys with ideas of mass consumerism and gluttony, but he puts these strong statements into a technicolor palette that's confusing at first, right before it becomes awesome. Take a look:

I ordered a copy of Dr. Phibes (the movie I mentioned last post), and as soon as I watch it, I will be putting a mini review up for humor's sake. Right now, you'll have to be satisfied with a crazy news story. Did you Kiddies read about the maggots on a plane? Apparently, a US Airways flight leaving Atlanta was taxiing for takeoff and people started noticing maggots falling from the overhead compartments. Not oxygen masks. Maggots. So, they turned the plane around and fumigated. Turns out, one of the passengers brought rotten meat onboard in his carry-on. What? Yes, this is real life.

And that flight was still less awkward than this opera...


Until next time: unpleasant dreams...
