Hurry Up and Wait

Today’s been another sittin’ day. I have these days — even in New Orleans — when there’s just not much going on. Hard to believe I know.

It’s not really the sittin’ that bothers me, it’s the waiting for something to get me off my chair so I can get this show on the road and back to work on my “tarpestries” that gets old. (I’ve decided that’s a good name for what the tarps picadas have evolved into.) So I doodle.

Meanwhile, I got word I’ve been given another traffic box (or boxes — not sure if I get both — I hope so though) in Boise in my neighborhood. Yay!!

I want to do a tarpestry for my design so I’ve been doodling ideas for that.

I want to combine the motifs of the “walking man” and the “stopping hand” with the ethnic influences in my neighborhood. It should be fun and I’m looking forward to getting started.

But for now I guess I’ll just hurry up and wait.
