The return of painting - Arts - Entertainment - theage.com.au
At last, maybe schools won't dump art & music from the curriculum quite as easily as they appear to have been doing.
"As a result of this painterly pressure cooker, all over the world art schools are employing sessional staff who know the ancient skills of stretching a canvas. They are seeking those artists who can pass on the century's old skills of creating a painting from minerals, pigments, oils and binding agents. It is the true alchemist's art, turning base materials into intellectual, emotional and financial gold. In short, painting, like The Terminator, is back. From artist-run-spaces to the auction houses of Christie's and Sotheby's, all forms of painting are being bought, argued over, and enjoyed. And it no longer matters if it is figurative or abstract, modernist or postmodernist - so long as it is painting. Around the world, as we will see, the pages of popular magazines, specialist journals and daily broadsheets are filling with "welcome back" articles on painting's timely return, happening at the very moment when what's been called "techno-fatigue" is hitting the previously dominant areas of digital art, video, and new media."

about a conspiracy! LOL
Ok,here goes, while I was doing my treatment, I found my skin thinned & became dryer. I could only use "very" soft toilet paper. So, I found a brand I liked that was very soft & it became "the" essential brand, even better, if it was on special. Except...I have discovered a peculiar trend in TP fashion. For a little while it's fine & soft, everything seems ok, BUT, then after a while, the composition of the paper changes and it is no longer as soft, this usually occurs after the "special" of the brand in question finishes & takes place a month or so later. At first, I thought I was imagining this
peculiar phenomonen, but, no, I'm not and I have tested this theory with several brands.
Soooo, there ya go, only buy the advertised *soft* toilet paper on special or risk the sandpaper effect!
Well, now that I have shared this wisdom with you, I must go & take Yoda's lunch to school for him. He left it sitting on the kitchen bench. Sadly for him, I left my bag at home, so he couldn't have tuckshop. I think I foiled his master plan. heh.

The Courier-Mail: Art world dines on delicious scandal [20aug05]
Uhoh. If I have ever given you one of mine, you better email me and get me to write up documentation to prove I gave it to you. I guess I better ask friends that have swapped works with me to give me documentation too. I don't want to be accused of stealing them in 20 years time.

heehee, my son has my sense of humour.
Yoda got some Do not Disturb door hangers in a mag tonight, one is of Britney singing with *Do not Disturb, I'm singing* on it. So, while his sister is in her room singing to the radio, He added the word *badly* underneath & hung it on her door.
She's just discovered it. heh.

Last night I worked on the new domain, except for the portfolio part as I still need to get some pics of images I've sold. I set up a new email account for it & happily emailed all my clients with the new email, sent some personal emails & replied to an email list I am subscribed to.
Today I realised that I had set the signature block in OE to ALL outgoing emails, not just the new business one. DUH! Now everyone subscribed to the mailing list I replied to has my mobile number! aaargggghhhhhhh.
Anyone have spare brain cells I can borrow?
The wind is howling outside & we have a gale warning [almost like being in Townsville again LOL] the kids have asked if school will be cancelled tommorrrow [snerk] I hope not, I've got things to do, like go to a movie *g* Yes, I am vertical again, altho I am walking verrrry sloooowly. I have to get out of the house or I will start screaming.
I found a pair of black leather pants dating from my misguided youth, so I'm going to cut them up & use them for a book cover. It's not like I'm ever gonna get my rear into them ever again! I think I'll keep this one for me though as I wore these to the very first concert I went to, which was Skyhooks at the Townsville soundshell.
We didn't get many big name acts up there, so this was a huge deal & altho we had tickets, it was more fun to sneak in under the fence & leg it before security nabbed us. We were very proud of ourselves LOL
Feelin' - happy

Ok, I think I finally got everything working correctly and the network secured LOL I hate the technical side of computers, drives me nuts!
Not much happening anyway, still not moving around much, but it's getting better.
I just got a great batch of glass beads from Ebay, they are destined not for jewellery but attached bookmarks to some of the handmade books I'm working on.
I'll have some more artwork up by the end of the week, and have nearly finished my new site [ YAY!] I've also caught up on some books I've been meaning to read & even watched a couple of dvd's. Amazing, I don't feel so behind in the social whirl of reading & movies anymore *g*
BQ2 has me bidding on drum sets & bass guitars on Ebay for her *roll eyes* I am also frantically looking for a quality set of ear plugs for me LOL I am the most tone deaf person you could ever know, so it's a good thing she takes after her father for the musical side LOL
I have also nearly finished re-entering all the family tree data I lost when my old comp died, so now I just have to find the scans I saved.
Well, cheerio cobbers *g* I'm off for a snooze *g*
Feelin': Annoyingly cheerful
