The endless project


<-----I have this endless project of sorting books and other things in hopes of someday having a "central" place for information. What is comical is that all of my art books are not even represented here, those are in my bunker studio space.  Part of me would like to put this all of this on the curb together with a giant free sign. I'm in the market for a Kindle.
The bad news from the day is that I've misplaced my good Sony camera. I fear I inadvertently put it in one of these zillions of boxes. Luckily I have a spare, but the good Sony is my favorite. You know what?...all this calls for a chocolate croissant and a cup of Joe!
How was YOUR Sunday? Did you get a lot done?  (Top Photo) Painting: Celeste Bergin, Thunderbird, oil on 16x20 stretched canvas)

Hi, Celeste,
Wow, very cooool car!! (I'm hopeless for mechanics.)
Sounds you're having very busy days. So sorry for the camera(what a coincidence, I have Sony SLR camera,too.) Hope you can find it. That's a good idea, have a cuppa and favorite one, indulgence. Take it easy and enjoy your life!
Cheers, Sadami

Too bad a camera doesn't have a ringer on it like a cell phone so you can just call it to find it... Bummer!

You T-bird is wonderful. You captured that teal paint job beautifully.

I painted... I cooked... I did laundry... I designed... I watched two episodes of True Blood... and then I painted some more. It was a perfect Sunday.

I so love old cars and this one is right up there with the best. A beautiful old Thunderbird that looks amazing coming or going! And boy! Hoping you don't have to go looking through the boxes for the camera! Any chance it is in your car? Definitely a situation worthy of a croissant and a drink. LOL

I read the title of the post and laughed without reading the post! The entire contents of my garage is an endless project! Sadly, I don't have a croissant...:)

Love your painting .... we had a 1956 T-bird in 1969. Memories.

So organized! Hats off!!!

Beautiful T Bird. I've given up on a central info place. I read a book about getting organized; it said keep your books near your reading spot--I have many spots so books are everywhere and bookcases are overflowing. I wonder if a Kindle would help.

If I had a Tbird, it would be turquoise just like this. My first car was a turquoise Mazda station wagon. I loved it and practically lived in it.

Add me to the Sony SLR lovers list. I like Don's idea of a ringer. Remember idiot-mittens? They had suspender clips that attached to your cuffs. All of my stuff should be clipped to my clothes.

Speaking of stuff, I also spent the day cleaning the garage. A fool's mission, to be sure, but it keeps you from buying stuff you already have.

You put class into that painting! It looks great!

Looking to a day I can focus on painting, and be able to enjoy it.
For now my endless project is moving...what to keep and what to let go.
A cup a joe sounds good!

careful, I've found art books on Kindle to be not so good-the images are fuzzy. But Kindle is great for novels, nonfiction. Art books are better on the ipad if available. All this will change in a year or so I'm sure.
