I've always thought that it would be great fun to design CD covers for bands. But did I ever work toward that? No, it was just an idle thought made without seeing myself actually doing it. Which is funny in a way for an idiot savant graphic designer, but I never thought about it until last week when a very dear friend whose husband is in a blues band based in Red Bluff, Downtown and the Feelers, asked me to help them with the design for a new CD they were going to have done by Christmas.

Looks like folks are starting to tighten their belts a bit. This thought was born after being at the St. Mary's Fine Art & Craft sale on Saturday. My friend Cherie and I shared a booth and at first I thought the slow sales were due to our work not being representative enough for the folks that were there to raise money for the school's programs. People did attend, but were not parting with their cash...sigh.

Thanks to everyone who came out to my one-night only art show for First Friday in Woodland at George Streng's Photogenics studio in historic downtown Woodland last night. Special thanks go to George for inviting me to show my work there, Dan Garlock for helping me to hang it on Thursday and to the Daily Democrat newspaper for publishing a great article (click on word article) about the show! Both Cynthia Burdick (Ms. Cynstone) and I had a great time and are eager to go back sometime next year if George has a spot for us.

After Tuesday's election I do think that we have a much better chance at peace in the world now. I wasn't going to get political at all during the election season as most folks are up to their eyeballs in political fu... (fu means stuff and I stole the usage from Joe Bob, the guy who used to 'review' b-flicks in his own politically incorrect way). But I couldn't help myself on Monday when I had to post Obama's photo.
