little things

Remember when I quit buying clothes for a minute? I started painting them instead. Teeny-tiny versions of clothes.

I like little paintings and stuff lately, and have been itching to get another art swap together. For a long time, I've been wanting to do the periodic table, but I think that one is going to get shelved for right now, until I feel a little more sciency. More utilitarianly (yes), I'm thinking of a perpetual calendar, since by the time we get it together, the last calendar we made will be spent.
So, I'm thinking maybe about ten of us? Small format (for desks), maybe 3x5 or 4x6. We'll divide up the days depending on how many people are interested, so you'd get three or four days - like "4, 11, and 21" or whatever, and make a little print/painting/collage/whatever, and make a series (just of ten or so - I'd like to keep it small so you could conceivably make them by hand if you wanted to). Held together with a binder clip, easily updated every day. No months, just days, so you can use it for as long as you like. This is a feeler. Send me an email or something if you'd be interested. I'm thinking fall.

AH! I love your paintings. It reminds me of Fifi Lapin.

also- I would potentially be interested in this desk calendar idea thing. I've seen peripherally your other art swaps and have been so fascinated, and wanted to participate, but at the time didn't know you :)

Lana, you're in. We'll be in touch about it, probably in August things will get set in stone.
