Happy Day (Or Else!)

Coffee in the Los Angeles skyline mug, hold music from Veterinary Pet Insurance on speakerphone as my music. It's already a morning, but it's *going* to be a good one (dammit!). I finished cataloging the breakage from the accident at one of my galleries this morning. Twenty pieces costing $1,182 (artist price, not retail) damaged. Of those, a couple of big ones can be cut down and made into new pieces, a few of the little ones can be ground and refired, the metal stands were ok, so total loss is reduced to $675. I am splitting that with the gallery so neither of us got hit too badly--it could have been a LOT worse.

Finished the proposed banner for FeSiO Art (above) and am working on the rest of the website. It's a good first pass, but I want an image that integrates with the text better for the long-term. Other comments?

Picked up a new digital camera yesterday on the way back to the studio from ULine. It's a cute little Nikon Coolpix, and I *know* "cute" isn't the main feature one looks for in a camera. Obviously there were many other factors that went into the choice (usability being #1--if I can't find the white balance adjustment without having to read the manual, I'm not buying the camera). And it's so cute! It's red! I will use it today to photograph *two* Niche entries...

And I will ship, and I will fuse, and I will inventory, and I will clean. Finally, I will Remember The Milk.

Splitting the damages with the gallery makes good sense lots of ways. Hopefully, you'll be back with them later with a bunch of top quality items that they'll sell fast and make up the loss with.
