It is time to make a new 4X6 inch postcard, one that reflects where my pieces are now, what with all the silversmithing marrying of the two crafts....
With Bazaar Bizarre coming up I realized it would be really good to have the cards NOW - speaking of which, if you love something in either shop now might be the time to grab it as BB is a 2 day event in Golden Gate Park and things may sell.
Anthony suggested so amazingly the idea of a painting-style still-life, and so after a morning of arranging and photography with the trusty Nikon D60 and a tripod, here is the winner:
The koi is my humorous homage to the still-life-with-fish genre that can be pretty hard to look at: all these gasping-y, flippy fish bodies ready for the chopping block. Ack!
The amazing fresh fruits are from the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmer's market, which happens every Wednesday and Sunday, rain or shine all year long.
This morning it was f-f-f-f-rigid, but I had my first persimmon, which you buy soft and suck out the sweet nectar from a hole you bite - how Twilight!
Earlier in the day I dropped off the Holter Monitor - over the course of yesterday and last night I had four really solid events, so they are recorded and will hopefully get me one step closer to clarity.
Thank you so deeply for your fantastical comments on yesterday's post.
One final note: please please see the movie "Up" - Anthony and I watched it last night and it touched me to the bedrock.
