There are a couple of things about these trailers that have really hit home. 1. Portland is a place where young people go to retire. 2. The dream of the 90's is alive in Portland. I like thinking I'm retired. Though typically when people retire there is some form of retirement income slated. I'm not sure my measly weakly unemployment checks count. But the dream is totally alive, maybe not exactly how the writers intended. but since I was cheated out of actually living during the 90's this makes sense to me. but enough about this.
In other news! My Kristie portrait was accepted into a show! It opens on January 7th 2011 6 -9 at the CODA gallery. Mark your callenders now! You can also FB like them if you are so inclined and can rsvp to the opening!
Printmaking was successful this weekend too! Although I am remiss for not taking photos of the art or the fun! Also had a great painting session with two dear painting friends, gift exchange and holiday pizza! I received the above lovely framed linocut and a very adorable cigar box painting set up!
And speaking of unemployment, I just had the most unpleasant convo with a representative that was less then helpful explaining just how contract work affects unemployment benefits.
And now some holiday lunch with a lovely dog loving tile rep!
