A Little Update

I know I've posted sporadically of late and wanted to give a quick update.  First and foremost my paints are out for the first time since my move.  I'm well past the halfway mark on my painting and hope to be posting it by the end of this coming week.  I was getting a little frustrated and then things started coming together yesterday.  The little video is a slideshow collection of pastel pieces that will be up at a local cafe starting August 1st.  It's not a place known for generating sales, but I appreciate the exposure and a small solo show. 

I got a phone call on "Earthquake" this past Friday from someone interested.  I don't know if there will be a sale just yet, but it feels good to get the inquiry.  It is a favorite piece of mine and I really want it to be up somewhere on a more permanent basis.  

Still no job, but I'm getting a few positive connections for potential clients for the business.  I'm hoping I can limp along to give it time to take off.  ©2010 Cindy K. Shaw All rights reserved

Happy Birthday

Today is my birthday and for your own entertainment I thought I would share my morning text dialogue with a good friend, Kate.
Kate: Happy fucking birthday, ok?
Me: Ok, damn it!
Kate: You better enjoy it...or else..
Me: Ooooooooohh. Scared of you.
Kate: Dude. U oughta be. I been doing my chaturangas.
Me: I see the headlines now. "Middle aged woman killed by pushups."
Kate: Lol! Me or u? What r u now, like 57 or something?
Me: 44 is half of 88 seems like the middle. "Killer found collapsed & exhausted next to the body."
Kate: LOL!!

It's good to have friends that get you. I'm making my favorite cake, a Reine de Saba, which is a dark chocolate almond cake with a chocolate butter cream icing. If you watched Julie and Julia you may remember the scene where they take their first bite of this cake. That swoon happens to me every time.

Later tonight I will meet Kate to go see "Undershorts" which is the R-Rated portion of the City Theatre's Festival of Shorts.  I've been to the regular program before, but this is a first for the Undershorts segment. We hope to meet up after wards for a little dinner and drinks with her partner, who returns today from an out of town trip. Have a great day everyone.  ©2010 Cindy K. Shaw All rights reserved
