2chickens, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

two of my ole gals, butterscotch and helga. i miss my chicken girls. I had an original brood for 9 years, Silver was the last to go at 10 years. tHERE IS NOTHING like having your friends walking around picking at bugs and sun bathing while working on the farm.

the chain link bridge is my most favorite bridge in the world. Whenever it closes due to a barge or something running into it i miss it. and the time lost due to driving to route 1 and crossing the merrimac at the port of newburyport.

little magnet i made today

little magnet i made today, originally uploaded by Tobin Art.

i did finish a HUmongous painting today too but too dim to take outside and it will be coming soon.

i am being very brave, making stuff everyday even if it seems like a huge failure (alot of my experiments seem that way and then i have to do huge release for all the failures so that i can be grateful i can even be experimenting, and sending stuff to galleries and waiting to see whether they want my stuff or not....have to lift it out softly, i re discovered yesterday when i did this. and it really lifted! i felt so much better).
