Workin' on paintings today...page 80 of Digger got done yesterday, a number that staggers me completely. Today, did the layouts and about half of page 81. I have two paintings sort've in the works. I think I've finally hit a method for the mixed media originals that works--I do a sketch on the computer, I transfer it to paper in a crude and squiggly fashion with my trusty projector.

Then I go to a coffee shop and spend a few hours refining it while chatting with my fellow hominids.

Not only does this get me out of the house, it actually keeps me from rushing the sketch to get on to painting. Since I'm a lot better at painting than drawing, and enjoy it more, this is a good thing. Now I just gotta lay paint on the pesky things...

Yesterday, I mailed a print. It was in a tube. The tube had two pre-printed labels on it, clearly labelled "To" and "From." Because I have the brains the good lord gave an eggplant, I carefully wrote my address in "From" and the recipient's address in "To." I took it down to the UPS store, paid the postage, and off it went.

All right, you can all see where this is going.

Today, I open the mailbox and discover that, yup, I've recieved a shiny tube labelled in a very familiar handwriting. I have a sneaking suspicion that if I opened it up, I would find a very familiar print, too.

I double checked four or five times. Yup, I labelled it correctly all right. To, From, basic prepositions, same as I learned in school.

Tomorrow I will put it in the mailbox with a nice note saying "Please deliver to the "TO" address, not the "FROM" address. We'll see if that works...
