I hope to turn this design into fabric and then cut it all apart for A.C.E.O.'s. Of course if someone wants to buy it before I cut it apart, they better speak up fast.

When I was doing caricaturing, I loved to draw my subjects with mermaid bodies. My weakest area was sports. I could never quite remember how to draw a soccer ball or a basketball. I really should round up some kids and get back into caricaturing. I want to show you the mermaid here but she's topless and I don't want to offend anyone. We'll see. I don't really want to put a black rectangle over her torso either.

Today I needed to cut two pieces of mat board for my square foot paintings. So I carefully measured my mat board using a 12" x 12" blank canvas board for my template. Remember, the window in the mat board must be slightly smaller than the piece of art, so it doesn't fall out of the frame. Well, I knew this of course and measured very carefully. And that black mat fit that 12" x 12" board perfectly. So I went ahead and used the same measurements for the gray mat board.
The problem came when I took my painting, and laid the mat board on top of it. I had forgotten that every painting has a 1/2" white strip around it from the tape. So now, a smidgen of that white margin shows no matter how I place the mat board. It's things like this that make me want to run screaming into the night.
