Number Four on the Floor

By | Ordinary Days, Treefort Tarps

I’m over the hump. Four are done. Of course I am developing posture Quasimodo would relate to and for some reason the toes on my left foot have gone numb. But it’s all good, right?

This one is called “Granny Squares” and is hard to photograph so you’ll just have to settle for details.

And now I’ve got to limp as fast as I can over to BSPR to hang the Metamorphosis exhibition….

Any minute now.

Audrey?

Action Girl is in her element this week! Yesterday I managed to finish the third tarp (in two hours less than it took me to finish the second tarp) AND arrange the artwork to be hung in the TVAA exhibition Metamorphosis which opens March 7th.

I had help of course. While I was madly working at home on the third tarp which I have titled “Orange You Glad,” Jordan Newberry was at BSPR ably receiving all the artwork for the show. And when I went to BSPR to deliver my piece, mom met me there and helped me work out the arrangement.

Then I went home and got back to work on tarp #3. Is it just me or does this one look like it wants to reach out and take a big ol’ bite? The Tarp Picada that ate the artist.

Orange you glad I only have four more to go? Well I am!

One Tarp per Day

By | Ordinary Days, Treefort Tarps

One tarp per day. That is the plan. It doesn’t matter that I am responsible for a TVAA show hanging this week. It doesn’t matter that my livingroom looks like a bowling alley while I spread polyvinyl and duck tape hither and yon. It doesn’t even matter that tomorrow is Mardi Gras (and any of you who know our New Orleans history, know that matters) and we won’t be celebrating.

One tarp per day, for seven days, and then I get my life back.

Day One was Saturday, March 1st, and this is the first finished tarp…

Day Two was Sunday, March 2nd, and I finished the last bit just as “Twelve Years a Slave” won the Oscar for Best Picture. Wee bit poetic I thought. Well maybe a haiku’s worth. A limerick’s?

Stay tuned. Day three is just getting started!
