Signs I Like

A painted sign, advertising paint, it's brilliant!
I would love to see a set of legs cross the road.
This is the greatest name for a meat pie shop.

Should I still be watering him everyday?

Working With Little People

One of my new fine art pieces uses little miniature people.  I was so happy when I came up with this concept, because I love working with tiny people.

Later

Grass Head Day 17

I think I may be responsible for his crazy hairdo, I think I mess it up when I water him.

Signs I Like

I love old painted signs.
I can't even read the name of this place.
I think something's happening here... I'm not sure what.

Grass Head Day 14

I wonder how long grass lives?

Hey A Second Bathroom This Week

Maybe it's because I was thinking about it, but this week I managed to visit another new bathroom.  I guess that's how it works, I really have to have the idea of photographing a new bathrooms on my mind, or I forget about it.

Click here to see this new bathroom.

Grass Head Day 12

The grass seems to be getting so long that it's not sticking up, and starting to fall over.  I wonder if Allison needs to give him another haircut?

His grassy hair is officially out of control.

Still Working On My Oil Painting Piece

There's something about this piece that's not letting me get my teeth sunk into it. I'm sure part of it is a fear of using oils (I'm not a big fan) but I also think that I'm not really prepared to start the next phase of this piece.  I've decided to step back and re-work the base colours to make sure I get it exactly right.

1st Bathroom Addition Since Australia

It's been a while since I've added a new bathroom to the Bathrooms I've Been To map.  I find it hard to find new bathrooms when I'm at home because I've already posted most of the bathrooms from places I visit regularly.  I have to visit an irregular place to find a new bathroom, and you don't want to think about irregularity when you're someplace new.

Grass Head Day 10

Even after Allison gave him a haircut yesterday, he still looks like a punk.

Signs I Like

Now that's a whale of a sign...
Breaking the law to take a picture.
It sounds like an bad euphemism for lady parts.

Grass Head Day 7

We either have small grass, or large sprouts.  I'm not sure when it officially changes.

Grass Head Day 5

Still no sprouts, but the instructions say it could take as many as 12 days for that to happen.

Signs I Like

I loves me a giant Santa, no matter what time of year it is.
I have never been walking along a peer and thought to myself "boy I bet there's some tasty shellfish down there, maybe I should dive in."
It's very rare that a sign that is meant to be clever, actually is clever.  But this one from the entrance of a museum made me giggle.

Working On Some Jewelry

I've decided to design some jewelry based on several of the fine art pieces from my collection known as Senses.  My goal is to have three prototypes finished by next week.  I'm not sure what will come of these pieces yet, but it's been interesting designing them.

I Didn't Feel Old

I was looking in the mirror today and saying to myself that I don't really feel older at all (it's my birthday today).  I'm healthy (so my latest battery of tests tells me), I'm fairly fit, and I still feel like going outside every day.  I mean look at how hip I am, I'm wearing a punk rock shirt.  What's that you say... You don't know what CBGB's is?..  How about the Ramones?.. That neither?.. No I don't think the band Fun is punk!.. You kids just don't get it...  Oh god I'm an old fart... Get off my lawn you little dirt bags!!!

Mixing Colours to Make Some Jam

I've used twice as much paint testing to get the right "jam" look than I'm going to use on the final piece I'm working on.

Signs I Like

All of today's entries are from a town in New Zealand called Bulls... you decide if the puns are worth it.
I like the fact that they don't use the word "bull" in this pun.
You can see that the word bull is a very versatile word for puns.
It gets a little old, but in a funny way.
