Well, tonight was the last class before Rakkasah. I think we'll be okay. I'm not nervous yet but I will be on Saturday! I'm really excited though. I was there as a spectator last year and never in a million years did I think I would actually be in it in such a short time. Whee! Please come visit! Saturday, 8pm, East Stage at the fairgrounds in Vallejo!
I spent the entire morning sorting chickens and finally got the breeding pens set up...only about three weeks later than normal. It actually didn't take nearly as long as I thought it would, I guess that happens with half as many birds! And I found even more to get rid of, so I'm going to be down to a flock of 35, which is pretty amazing. I may still wait a while to hatch chicks, I just don't feel like dealing with them at the moment, but I ought to at least be able to sell eggs within a couple weeks. Of course, keep in mind there will be a LOT less for sale this year, with less than half the flock I had last year at this time.
I did a sketch for a new scrim pendant last night and started working on the actual scrim today. This will be in color, though it's not a very colorful image. It's also sort of a practice piece for what I'm going to do on that piece of micarta I showed a few postings ago, because I want to try out some techniques and colors. Why yes, that is a birch tree. ;-) (sorry, inside joke). Anyway, the main subject isn't on there yet but you can sorta see the outline. I'm working on a drawing to use as reference for the micarta piece but I'm still undecided about the background so it's slow going.
That constellation looks like Ursa Minor to me....I always enjoy seeing your work.
