yesterday evening i received this phone call from the owner of a local gallery where some of my art is hung. lauren had a customer in the store who was looking for one of my banana pieces. i think i only have two, svennana and banishna (which is my icon on this blog), and i only ever brought banishna to the gallery. lauren and i were both confused, somehow believing there was indeed another banana drawing at some point...
if you know me, you know i am all about good customer service. so i told lauren i would bring in my other banana for the customer right away. so last night i printed svennana. of course, the colors were all wrong. at the time i figured i was just out of ink. now i'm realizing i may have set it up as an rgb file and not a cmyk. at any rate, it looked horrible so i grabbed my cray-pas and here is what i came up with.
i took apart a goodwill frame (@ 12 x 15), cleaned it up, rubbed in a dash of red ink (i'm out of spray paint), and voila. i am waiting now, ever so anxiously, to hear what the customer thinks. i hope she's not too disappointed. but i swear, there was no other banana
update: svennana and banishna sold. i'm excited. but i will miss them

i am crazy in love with this image. Dave, who is working on some stuff in our house, brought photos of the beautiful work he has done. this shot was simply the naked wall of his neighbor's living room after it was ripped apart (only to be remade into something lovely).
i hope it wasn't rude of me to fixate on the "before" picture, but holy crap, is this vivid
if it's sunny tomorrow, i will play with my ttv. or maybe some polaroid action
she really does collect such great stuff. check this out HERE
ok, more ttv coming veryvery soon

today was so gorgeous, but a little cold. i met Amy at the deli (the one real deli nearby) and got there early so i could take a few pics. this is my old neighborhood, there's a college a block away, so i didn't look strange at all as i photographed the sidewalk.
look at the photo below to see what i'm doing. i'm literally aiming my digital camera at the viewfinder of the box camera. this is where you can see that a box device, blocking all external light, would come in handy. i tried paper towel and tp rolls; too small. i have to stop being lazy and construct something.
