Who would have thought...
... that the sunset could be so gorgeous, when there really wasn't any sun to speak of today? It was inversion-fog-grey all day, and then this sunset appeared. I shot this from my porch just a few minutes ago. Maybe, now that January is past, we will see a more colorful world here. I will take this as a sign!
I decided that I am tired of running a puppy day-care here, and doing nothing but trouble-shooting Booker's next plan of action. So I made myself work a bit in the studio today, in spite of the dog. I got the cartoon for the 'March' tapestry done, and tied the warp on the big loom. I also gessoed down the newspaper pages on a canvas, preparing it to do the piece for the Haiti benefit exhibit. Booker quietly ripped a giant hole through the rug from in front of the entry door. Small price to pay for some work time, I think. (A great deal of 'rug pieces' are spread around the entry way and living room, so I am hoping he didn't eat much, as a vet visit would not be a good thing. Anyway, so far he seems to have the constitution of a goat. And the teeth of an industrial metal shredder.)
