Oh I’ve Been A Workin’ In The Woodshop

Jamie took me to Home Depot so I could buy some pine boards for arting purposes. My Mamma used to bribe me to go with her to Home Depot by buying me a tiny cactus and letting me take a bunch of paint samples. I got all nostalgic and now my pockets are filled with paint samples and I’ve got a wee cactus on my windowsill. (I hope I can at least keep my cactus alive …. I’ve been demoted from owning plants with leaves)

My art animus kindly stopped by just when I needed him most and I wood-burned this piece. I love wood-burning. It forces me to draw sloooowww and smooth when I’m normally a scratchy frantic drawer. But wood-burning gets smokey smokey and makes my hair smell like campfire.
