Magnum opus

When I woke up this morning, I was in the middle of the most vivid dream. I was doing one of those huge, insanely detailed pencil drawings we had to do in art school. Mine was called “Three Crisps and a Corn Flake.”

My mental picture was so clear and impressive, I briefly considered buying a big sheet of bristol board and drawing it for reals.

Then I remembered that those drawings took us, like, ten hours a day for several weeks. Whereas going to Google images, typing “potato chips” and ‘shopping around with the result takes about ten minutes.

See, this is why I don’t paint.

Anyhoo, sorry for the laminosity of posts this week. A former cow orker of mine from the Olde Countree is in England on vacation and planned to drop in on Casa del Badger. I’ve spent my time slaying dust bunnies and vacuuming up spiders. When those snapshots make it back to the Land of the Free, I want envy to burn with the fire of a thousand white hot suns in the breasts of one or two of my former colleagues.

That is, assuming there’s a Rhode Island to go back to.
