Still can't see my site. Not sure exactly where the problem is but hopefully will be resolved sometime in the next year. Soooo, can't put up the new design as I can't live test it. sigh.

Very frustrating.

In other news, in my effort to kick my own arse into gear I joined NAVA [National Association for the Visual Arts]

Anyway, I'm off to watch clouds :-)

Acrylic Paint

I used to paint in acrylic but since Uni have painted only in gouache and watercolour. Decided to use acrylic again today and figured it was like riding a bike...

Ahem. Nope. Not even close. I ended up grumpy that it dried so quickly and was really gluggy and thick.

Back to gouache LOL

Got some bookshelves today for my studio. I don't have enough storage space and I can't find anything unless I hunt through piles of books and reference material stacked on the floor. Which makes me even more grumpy. Afterwards I went to Dymock's to order a book and picked up 2 more Aussie SciFi Fantasy writers to read and a book for the boy. He's reading a series by an Aussie as well but I couldn't remember what number he's up to [ about No 7] so I got him the new Skullduggery Pleasant book. He's happy.

His other sleep problem is caused by not having a book to read when he goes to bed. Didn't even factor that in. He's been read to since he was a baby then when he was old enough, he's continued to read before going to sleep. It didn't occur to me that he'd developed a ritual.

And, speaking of which, I am off to bed as well.

my car

I just got back from Melbourne. I bought a car *G* A VN Group A SS replica to be exact. Of course, my favourite car is the Maserati MC12 but in the meantime this one will do me...

Space Launch...

Anyone know how to stop a drafting table from suddenly releasing its locking mechanism and launching everything onto me with no warning?

No glass or water to be flung randomly around this time luckily LOL

Don't know why it's doing it, it's weight balancey thingy must be off. It was locked and I made the husband check it too.
