Thanks to all who have wished me well in my recovery from this silly cold virus. I am better, thanks to Mucinex and a dreaded nasal douche, which seems to help a lot!

I did indeed dissect the lovely blouse! Here's the posterior, again on the paint board:

We've had a warmer than normal week weather-wise, so I put in some good studio time, plus with my cold, I was lazing around and playing with my computer and printer more than usual. Here are two photo transfers on recycled muslin of the lovely and crystal clear Squam Lake that I took last summer. I was lying on my tummy on our boat dock, looking down at the rocky bottom. This first one is pretty much as you would see it, but I've gone over the lighter rocks with a Shiva paint stick combo of several blues:
I adjusted this one to sepia tone and then used the same Shiva paint sticks:

We went condo shopping in Atlanta again today and listed our unit with our agent, Michael, who is very knowledgeable, interesting, and fun to hang out with. C and I both feel very good about our fit with him. This is going to be an interesting few months, with our kitchen reno looming over us, and maybe even a condo upgrade! WooHoo!!!

Later this afternoon we walked up to the High Museum and took in the Impressionist Exhibit for the second time (gotta love those Impressionists!) and also a wonderful exhibit of black and white photography from the 60s and 70s. My favorite was the work of Garry Winogrand: "Women are Beautiful". If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and check it out. We also went to the SCAD museum and were totally awed by the work of Yinka Shonibare, "Odile and Odette". If you go, be sure and watch the video: fabulous!!

There's nothin' quite like a date in the city!
