Andrew Dice Clay has a role in Woody Allen's new movie Blue Jasmine. I thought he was dead. Seriously. Now I have to go see it, just for that.
Tonight we ate at a Korean restaurant where you can (if you wish) cook your own food. It's right on our block and we'd never been there. (Eileen, Pat, and Jacquie tried it and recommended it.) Here's a picture of Lou barbecuing his dinner. Cool how the little grill is built into the table, and there is a downdraft so no smoke rises up in your face.
I was home this week and worked on some things for my Hawaiian altered book round robin group, as well as a Field Notes round robin for my friends who meet yearly in Key Largo.
This one is for a book themed "All."
And of course, when it comes to summer drinks, it is all about that little umbrella!
And this one is a multi-page flip book for an
altered book with the theme of Creation Myths.
My pages are the story of How Raven Brought
Light to the World. (And also why ravens are
always black.) Below is the two pages with
all the flaps closed.
This is the first flap opened. Did you know that
(according to Tlingit legend) ravens were once white?
This was long ago, when the heavens were all dark.
One day, raven visited the home of Gray Eagle and
saw that he was hoarding bags with sun,
moon, stars and fresh water.
That rascally raven stole those bags and spilled
their contents out upon the earth. And in the end,
the smoke from the bag of fire blew onto his feathers and
darkened them, which is why ravens are always black!
And finally, the two pages below are sketches for a field
notes book for Sue. Her fictional character is
the daughter of Dr. Livingstone, following in
her famous father's footsteps as she searches
for her destiny. In my notes, Sue's character is
enjoying the wildlife in Zambia.
Nothing like art therapy to rejuvenate the soul!
