WOW this is cool

Wow this is great! I actually got on this sight without help from my wife, son or daughters. What a marvel. And it has speel chek too. I finished the still Life from Thursday's class and started the sandhill crane pic for the Old Hotel. I told them I would do one. It's has it's problems. I broke a tile last night as I was loading it into the kiln so I will have to redo it. Mike, our son, was over tonight and through conversation he reminded me that you can put up to 50% pulverized paper into your clay. I am planning on doing that for my tiles and brick as I can. Othello clay is easier to get than newspaper. This formula makes clay a minority ingrediant in the clay mix. I'll put in 25%paper 33%perlite and the rest Othello clay. I have a bunch of brick and tile to make so the paper thing will help. It actually makes the wet and dry strength of the clay better. I am in italics now and can't get out but it looks kind of cool so I'll leave it. So far I have two paintings and a bunch of tile for the March show. This is going to be sweet. Deb wants us to open a walk in co-op gallery in her space on Auburn st. Me too. Tom was right. Carnegie missed me with their announcement but they are closing for good. I'll go up there Monday and retrieve my work. I am sad. I loved being in Carnegie. I was in before,about 25 yrs ago, but got busy and couldn't fulfill my obligation so we parted company. My youngest child got a role in a sci-fi TV program where she plays a "robot diva." It will be a streach for her because she has always seem a deva to us. Thanks Pat
