i only used the bottom part of this, because the director decided aftewards that she did not want the cockerel to wear the knitted vest in any of the shots ...

 

:neutral:

 

so i had to take one with him, again:

... and the robbers: Kalle and Palle. :p

it is "my" intendant's birthday tomorrow (do you say "intendant" for the boss of a theater? it sounds so un-english ...)

 

i made a composite for him, using a portrait shot, titled, "Intendant, musing over the season's repertoire".

Just have to share a pic of one of my favourite Christmas gifts. It's a portrait of Koda by my niece Eden. Although it's done in a Warhol screenprint style it's a painting -

I wouldn't have a hope of painting something like this now, let alone when I was a kid.

:hey:

 

i was crafting today :knit:

 

got allover Martha-ish with cutting and folding, taping and stapling, no glue :no: but stickers :oh: and little ribbon loops to shut the darling boxes :manic:

they are to put small wrapped treats in, to take to the art group on Thursday (the antithesis of my other presentation, on the work of Dora Maar :photo: )

:roll:

definitely not art, and not much craft :lol: but fun:

 

i took the ball of yarn my sis-in-law gave me, and made a pair of almost-glove-thingies out of it while at my sister's:

it was easy and a lot of fun, and i already bought some red yarn (:roll:) for a second pair :manic:
