The work of Elsita Mora. I am still sifting through all her posts. Her work is amazing and there is so much of it. I keep finding new favorite pieces she has done.
Also, more kitted graffiti...I just love it! check it out!

Frankenstein Friday

Last week when we went to the Vet he not only told us about the possibility of future knee problems for the little dog. He also let me know that at 12.5 lbs he was way over weight! I am the guilty party here, I was giving him a little bit of everything I was eating. I have since put both of us on a diet.
However, Frankenstein has been seeking out peanuts around the bird feeders. Yesterday I found him in the collard green patch and it looked like he was chewing on something. I stuck my finger in the pile of leaves and at first I thought it was poop I had my finger in. But a quick sniff told a different story. It was peanut butter I smelled. It was a stash of suet he was chewing on! I don't know if the squirrels hid it there or Frankenstein himself...but he ate it all! This diet thing is going to be tricky!

globe progress

Globe progress is slow and it is driving me nuts! I applied a coat of rabbit skin glue to the globe. The hot water/glue melted the glue that was holding the two hemispheres together, it melted on contact and separated. I had to glue the earth back together and use books as weights. I chose a Watteau, Vermeer and a Durer book. Somehow I think that will help. I was listening to some NPR show on the environment all the while. It was an odd or maybe too real juxtaposition.
The plaster is still kind of wet on this side of the half sphere. I had it setting on this side on a slab of marble for days. No air was getting to the underside. It is now resting with the under side up. Mr. Eleven thinks I should use it to serve deviled eggs at the opening. But I am dieing to paint it.

I was able to sand it. But nothing can happen till it is fully dry. It feels really cool, smooth and round.
Arg! All this process is driving me nuts! I am going to have to start some projects that don't require so much prep.

Little, Bella, Frankenstein and the big Irish head

When Frankenstein met Little...
there was a lot of flirting going on..
Bella kept everyone in line. Nothing more than nose sniffing allowed..
and then there was the big Irish head. We sat around it like it was a fire pit. We drank Mimosa's and chatted while the dogs played. Maybe this will be our new St. Patties day tradition. All gather 'round the Big Irish Head and have a toast! Cheers!
