untitled

That's the way I feel tonight. It feels good to sit and do nothing; tired but not too tired to blog.   I finally finished jurying a show and sent off the results to the sponsoring organization.  It is always a challenge and a learning experience - I really love jurying, despite the hard work.

Have unpacked the suitcases and am now trying to reorganize for my next trip.  Made a bit of progress in clearing off the tables in my sewing room, but you wouldn't know it unless you had seen the "before."  Déjà vu encore une fois.  It is an endless loop.

Finally uploaded all those wonderful urban graffiti pix I took in Montreal's Quartier Latin - the student quarter.  No matter what I do, I can't seem to shake my love of urban grit. Here are a few for your viewing pleasure.
They were doing lots of construction near the Musée d'art Contemporain and I think this is a most wonderful alternative to the usual construction fence.
Tomorrow, back to real life: paying bills, making phone calls, etc. etc.  I have not had time to read all my usual favorite blogs but will just have to pick up the pieces day by day.

The elegance of the first graffito reaches ancient calligraphy.
Thanx for the mail, I tried to replay but was mailerdemoned.
In case you have lots of time and think it's fun to see the latest development,
I'm interested in your hopefully cruel judgement.

Eva's comment above gave me a chuckle! She is too funny and oh so creative!

Love the graffiti. Our daughter and son-in-law just had a lovely 4 foot high cedar fence installed around their backyard. I immediately thought about all of the graffiti art that will be appearing as the summer progresses, but I didn't want to mention it to them and rain on their parade. The other day she called me and said how she is afraid that the graffiti artists will be arriving any day now. The 'kids' are away on vacation this week, so I'm sure the cedar will be christened by the time they arrive home. chuckle, chuckle

glad you're home........enjoy paying your bills! (chuckle chuckle)

Welcome home.

I tell myself that grafitti is damaging to some poor soul's property and that it's blahblahblahillegal but I still love it, anyway- the hasty renderings of stylized names and ideas... it's raw and urban and it just really appeals to me.

Not much is more universal than graffiti. Welcome home!
