Good Times. Good Times.

Well, we survived our first art show of the year...barely. There wasn't a whole lot of traffic, which makes it hard to be too sucessful. It was for a really good cause, so it was worth it. And we get to have girl time, which is always an adventure. The outcome of a 'slow show' is usually we get a little silly. We usually feed off of each other. Of course, it's usually something really stupid and probably won't be funny to anyone else. For example, walking around critiqueing each others art and giving 'helpful hints' ,which were hilarious at the time. Like, for instance, we all stood around, thoughtfully studying this bird and Mom says, "I think these legs are a little on the long side" and Jill responds, "Yes, and I do believe that that eye is slightly out of proportion". It's conversation like this that we find absolutely hysterical...
Then, we had a long, deep discussion on hands. We discovered we all have certain coping mechanisms to avoid having to paint a hand, which is REALLY HARD! So, we walked around and documented these rare and sometimes freakish deformities. got to be able to laugh at yourself.

We all agreed that this one was the most ridiculous AND the the most hilarious...This is the very rare "long skinny arm with a ball on the end". FYI...this same affliction has affected her feet and legs as well. Poor thing. We wish her well.

This is an example of the 'rounded hump' is a throwback to craft shows from yesteryear. I believe there were some bunnies with this affliction and maybe some amish people, too, circa 1986.

This one we have lovingly named "Lobster claw"... it just opens and shuts like a clamp. Open. Shut.
" half-moons" are good for praying and...more praying. That's about it.
Jill often goes for strategic cropping...I think she's a chicken -BOCK, BOCK! another case of "lobster claw"... Look at how well she's CLAMPED onto that piece of string, though. Good job!

"Web hands"- This one kinda freaks me out. It's the stuff bad dreams are made of. That red polish is great, though. And that hair! Delightful!...
Is she hiding something behind her back?!?... No, someone, who shall remain nameless, once again chickened out. BOCK BOCK!
This whole thing had us close to tears. I know. We're wierd. But, hey, it took up at the very least a good 18 minutes out of our long day. Good times. Good times.
