The Work Week with a Few Breaks In-Between

This is what excited about our Texas Gallery show looks like (at Baby Barnaby's = ode to Nicole).

How many lists did we make this weekend? Too many to count.

Spending time with Chainsaw (sorry Meatball for the lack of representation - you were sleeping in the "condo" all week).

We did manage to see my favorite museum, the Menil Collection, and of course, the inspiration for the "Strange Artifacts" photographic Wunderkammer...

Documenting some illicit activity (something I am well-versed in as of late) on assignment for AJM at the Rothko Chapel.

A quick snapshot at the pool before heading to the airport.


Nancy and I finished the mock-ups for 10 artists' books! They will be published by Blurb in an edition of 10. Subjects include the "in between" ranging from 6 pages to 60.

Arranging "Inventory" - hot pink comes first naturally.

With a little help from our friends (Mark the "manager" and Radar stealing my seat)

13 hours later DONE!!

JR, Radar and ND tired but relieved.

Houston in December

School came to a rapid close for both of us and we have been working hard preparing for studio visits this week and the best news of them all... our exhibition at Texas Gallery in March! I packed lightly so all the photos are I-phone quality just a warning.

We started Friday morning with a 5:30 AM wake up call (the horror!) to talk about our project on the Living Arts show on Houston's KPFT 90.1 (we were really tired and not responsible for the taking of this photograph).

LBK's bell from Amarillo Ramp in the guest bedroom/study (awesome digs - hello Joule in Dallas).

Fake doughnut prop in the guest bedroom/study. Sadly the one with the pink sprinkles did not survive the swimming pool performance.

Ed, Jacinda, and Rainey with the samurai umbrella after lunch at Catalan. Ed had to rub in the fact he was eating pork belly on a stick while sitting next to the vegetarian!

Now where was this outfit when we were looking for our uniforms this summer! Floor length long fringe indeed.

Finally a new president in front of Dave Adickes' studio! Reasons why he doesn't look like Obama: 1) he's ten pounds heavier, 2) he's white (duh), and 3) and we're not sure if it is a house shoe or a hole on top of his head.

View of Dave Adickes' sculptures from the third floor of Nancy's Summer St. Studio.

Getting ready for a studio visit with Diane and Fredericka at Summer Street.

Playing around with the layout of the burial photos - ignore the hole in the wall as it's not part of the artwork.

Working on Ian's checklist... three hours later....
