On the Easel

I haven't posted anything lately because I have been busy overworking this poor painting and dealing with plumbers, electricians, HVAC men and gutter folks. We're spending $ like banshees.
Have you ever seen the movie "The Money Pit"?

Ahem.

Anyhoo....Drama schlama.
Here's what I have been up to.

Parts of this are only roughed in (the hand)
and other parts have been so completely over worked it's pathetic (the rest of it) .
The nose is very flat....still a bit of work to be done....
Parts of it I like, however. The hair, the right eye, the lip, the halo.
Sometimes when I post things like this on flickr or here on the blog, I can see them with fresh eyes.
I can suddenly see what is wrong with the picture.
So, for what's it worth..
In Progress
Oh yeah, by the way...it's me. Wearing a tinsel halo and smoking (sorry Michael, just for irony's sake)
a hand-rolled cigarette.
I think I look vaguely reminiscent the paper angels you see during the holidays, at the mall, for the Angel-Tree-Make-a-Kids-Christmas promotion.

Damn! You have your eyes perfected! It looks a little tighter than the tuff bunny -- but very cool nonetheless.

I liked the bunny better, though that incense you were smoking looked too much like incense.

BTW, the Chicken is coming very soon. Send me your new address for your own commemorative and stylish invitation!

Ya know?

And hey,
What cha gotta against smoking a little incense every now and then?
