So. Where in the world have I been?
I've been right here at home.
And why haven't I been posting?
Lots of excuses but only two really big reasons . . .
1.I've finally recovered fully (I think) from a month-long alergy/asthma bout with my body. No breathe, so no energy, and no stamina. All I wanted to do was stay in bed. So that's pretty much all I've done except for one week when I broke out with a red rash on my face and had to go to Houston for a dermatologist appt. (It's almost all gone now. Thank the good Lord!)
AND the other reason I haven't been posting . . .
Remember back in February when my computer cratered and would only
boot half way? Well, In September it CRASHED, BURNED, and went to
HEAVEN!!! Consequently, I had to buy a new one. Bad news was it was ony
4 years old - I keep them much longer than that. In fact the one before
that is still working - decrepitly but still working. Good news? Well, now I have the very newest iMac with a 24" screen!! Woohoo!!)
Anyway, from there, you know the drill . . . It's re-find and reinstall everything. OOPS! My printer is NINE, count them, NINE years old!! YIKES... they not only don't have print drivers for it anymore but they don't even make ink for it anymore. LOL. So-o-o-o, new printer! (Bad news? Another learning curve! Good news? I now have a brand new wide format HP printer Yippee!! Hope I learn how to make it print.
Next, the saga of the scanner. It was a top of the line large bed scanner from HP and still working GREAT! Only thing is that since I have the very newest iMac -- with the latest system version: Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard --- well, HP won't getaround to developing the scanner drivers for that until some of the newer scanners have drivers for Snow Leopard -- so I can get a driver for my OLD scanner in DECEMBER!!! Yuk!
I'm barely moving along in the "learn-new-hardware" department and managing to do things I don't need a scanner for -- &$*@#! But I can print -- some things -- LOL.
I was honored to get the frontice piece for Palais du Art.
Beyond all that, I'm frantically trying to stay afloat putting this major art exhibit together at church... AND make art for it... gasp, gasp. A couple of pictures of the making of one piece about Deborah and Jael (the show's theme is "Art inspired by the Book of Judges") and then tah tah for tonight --
Okey dokey --that's it so far... hopethis piece gets better soon!
