April 22nd, 2007


I completed the cooling tower (put down the last layer of glaze), finished the white coffee cup (shadow on the coffee), reworked the boot, saddle and stirrup (better shadows and highlights), and fleshed out the rusted gear. This was a good day's work.

Yesterday O came by and we put together the new bed. It took us three hours! I had no idea the process would be so involved. The mattress is slowly decompressing - the directions state that it will take between 72 and 96 hours for the mattress to reach its normal size and shape. Right now it still looks a little funny, but by Tuesday night it should be normal.

Next weekend is Art Chicago 2007! Last year I went with madresal and themiddlestates and had a great time. Art Chicago is one of the leading international contemporary art expos in the world and it's never a disappointment. I'm still trying to decide if I'm going to go on Saturday or Sunday - it sort of hinges on what my friend Rachael has planned for her birthday on Saturday, so we'll see. But anyway, it'll be Saturday or Sunday around 1pm if anyone wants to join me.

And now I am going to get a pedicure. Yay warm sunny weather!
