11:35 PM

As I write this. My kitty--the wide load tuxie, aka MaxMaxx shares the desk with my monitor screen and keeps me company. He's my fat cat. Sweet, big baby boy. Yes. I heart cats.

OK. tonight I did these three small rose terra cotta pots. They are tall-3 inches or so, and narrow. I'll post em after they dry--and I'll see if I love them or not. They are all sea sponge'd and one pot has a dusting of sand on it.

Yes. Sand from South Padre Island, Texas! A chum brought me a big jar of sand from there, about 4 or so years ago. I've had it in the back of a closet since I moved into this house. Anyway, I already know, if I should do another sand on the pot technique, I may just sprinkle some sand in the paint, instead of trying to sprinkle it on the pot after I painted the base color. Acrylic paint dries quite fast, so I had some sand less spots on the pot.

Oh wow--I just look at my hands. Not all the metallic blue came off of them. So on that note, I'm going to wash my hands one mo' time and head to bed. It's almost Friday

and I am so glad!
