Learning from Bigfoot

This painting above is one of my ever growing number of Bigfoot creations. You can barely see him and that is what I dig about it. I always feel a little bit watched partly because in this day and age privacy has to be fought for tooth n nail. Partly because there is a longing that calls out for more solitude and quiet places in the woods in me I am finding harder and harder to stave off. The idea of a cabin in the woods with a wood stove and indoor plumbing is starting to sound like heaven. So realistically I cannot disappear into the woods forever and hope to continue selling my artwork and having a family and all that kind of stuff but what I can do is embrace the inner Bigfoot and from time to time hide. Welcome to this edition of big foot.

I may also start not taking baths so I can have a bad smell and people will not want to come near me. Enjoy your day.

If you build it someone some place will make a cozy for it

Well the image above is just one of my paintings but the the theme of the post is just because I had this thought today. I tried looking for fabric fabric for a particular item I wanted to make and in a particular color. What I found was a massive amount of cozy covers for everything under the fucking sun.

There were toaster, camera lens, ipod, toilet paper, crayon, apple the damn fruit ones are thick, drink and just about any thing else you can come up with will have a cozy. When did it become a rule that everything must be kept warm and safe. Why do people buy these for things they then toss. Those fucking drink cozies. Those I at least sort of get if your coffee is hot and the shop is out of those covers then ok you have a plan. Not really but sure whatever.

Then there are the rest of them. What in the hell is going on with the fruit. Do you use the produce to do some weird office bowling everyday. How hard can life be on your fruit that it needs a safe place.

I will not even address the crayon and toilet paper stuff other than to say your crayons have a fucking box and again what is happening to the shit can paper that it needs to be made pretty. We all know that decorative yarn thing on the back of your commode is toilet paper how about you do not make us unwrap it if we need it.

Things I have learned this week

I am going to start doing a new post every Saturday called Things I have learned this week. Each week I am surprised by how much more there is to learn in the world. So here is what I have learned.

1. Back in the days of Malt shops people also made trays there and by made I mean painted designs on them. I am not sure how the hell that makes sense but a old lady assured me her father did that and insisted it was common place. I have no idea if it is true but she seemed sure.

2. My husband will drag home any piece of shit computer part he can get his hands on even if he never has a use for it. Case in point while old lady was rattling off Malt shop tray stories to me he found some random computer shit we had to buy at the animal rescue thrift shop.

3. If allowed people will always make you feel bad for not meeting their expectations even if those expectations are beyond reason. Just be right with yourself and tell them to fuck off.

4. If I made it at least one of my pets will want to fuck it up. This week again as I pulled a fabric and clay necklace out of the water dish I was reminded they are douche bags and I should never forget that.

5. Telling people the flat out truth when they are rude will piss them off unbelievably. I do not understand you would think if they were already being rude they would not be to concerned about other peoples views but nope they will flip their shit on you every time. I will not riddle you with tales of outraged fucktards just know it has been a long week.

6. My old dog looks really cute wearing her new shawl I made like a super hero cape.

7. That thanks to Regretsy and my love of the place I will never stop making little clay penises.

8. Scott Bakula has a face like a Border Collie.

So what have you learned this week?
