Immortality suit coming on but laboriously and I'm not sure its worth the effort. Cute idea, hey ho. Off to the Beaux Arts in Carcassonne today, maybe clear the mind.

Trying to make a jade immortality suit - without using jade, natch - beginning with the armature which is to be of Andree Bonnets x-rays. (Before she died she gave me her life-time collection.)
Staples no good so sticking with no-nails glue - perfect - and plaster board bandage which I like for the little motif that runs along it...
May have to stuff the x-rays once they are in shape. Can't think with what. Will then panel with blister packs. Origamiesque, trying to get the nose in :)

Bashed out the funeral portrait of our little dead bird, but legs so wrong will have to change.
Brother-in-law arriving this morning, having driven all night... next few days will be filled.
as ever, ambivalent about it all. Hope to use her again and focus on her rather than my own directions, sigh.
Bernard is much iller , must be on chemo for the rest of his natural, and last night Loretta died after long chemo intervention. Which on the other hand caused her to live long enough to see her grand daughter. I suppose one just carries on until the time comes to join them. Choices???
Nearly done with Orpheus.

Done more on this since the photo and now only want to big up light on Orpheus and darken the background of Eurydice - worried that I was channeling my inner Munch but I'm beginning to like it so don't care.
In the meantime some ideas about developing the ancient rocks theme. Off to find model to impose them on.
Prickly eyes, breathless, lala. Might just go back to bed. Very hot here and the forecast is for hotter.
