this blog has text, too



I discovered, after reading the comments on the last post, that nobody actually reads the words over here so all I'm going to say is:

YAY! I'M FINISHED! (Slide show here.) Pour me a double, my good man.

Ah, you must know I love, love the first one especially. I'd call it by name but there are no titles. I'll check it out on the website. Enjoy the well deserved celebration!

:-) I know what you mean (but I do read your words, you know. It's just that the bar-code art was so cool, I was speechless).

Congrations in such a big way on being done! Put your feet up. Get a massage while you're at it!

Ellen: Those are actually ravens not crows but I know -- is it a horse or a pony, right? The details are insignificant.

Tara: (I know you do.) BTW the little horse in the first one: completely from my brain. I could draw horses in my sleep, with my left hand and upside down. They are etched in my brain.

I do so, too, read the words! Nay! I hang on your every word and would worship at my lady's feet - oh, wait a minute! I might have nicked that from Shakespeare.Or someone.But I do read the proper writing.Also, I am real erudite and can tell a pony from a unicorn.

hey, I rarely post anything but words and yet people often respond to things exactly the opposite of what I say. It's a modern disease of rushing - and I've done it too. Sigh. It's not just your blog...

Dinah: You talk so purdy.

Carla: Can I use that in my artist's statement? :)

Angela: Me too.

Hayden: As for me, I've been accused of short attention span myself ... oh ... at least once! :) On that note, I will keep posting more pictures than words...

I read the words :)
I know how you feel though, sometimes blog readers can be itsy bit lazy and scan over deciding for themselves what the text might say. You're not the only one this happens to!

Lovely artwork.

I read the words! So is this calendar going to be published? It is so gorgeous.

This Chicken: Reality check -- thanks. I do it, too, so guilty as charged.

Kiki: Wow -- what a great idea. I never even thought of that. Of course, with its 13 months divided differently it doesn't match our current calendar but that could be a good thing!

I'd buy a 13 month calendar. I'm not wed to this pasted-together 12 we use, it would be a fun way to shatter another "box" - this one around time. An opportunity to think fresh...

The series looks great. Now what did you say?

Hayden: It's really an intriguing idea. I should research it further when I'm back from my trip.

Jan: A picture is worth 1000 words! :)

I read your words, Andrea. And I enjoy them.

And I enjoyed the slide show too. Love your asymmetrical symmetry, your playful iconography, your heart wisdom.
