Just what everyone needs for the cold winter months. Every snowed in artist’s studio needs to have a good supply of footwarmers and even though this particular model requires a lot of maintenance and upkeep, it is by far my favorite. My 130 pound portable heat generator.
I have definitely been doing too much computer work getting ready for Kickstarter and not enough work in the studio! Jax has been a little deprived of me time, so I took him out for a little snow play. I brought along the usual assortment of
bribes, err, rewards. When we were about to come back in the house I readied the last treat and gave him his usual command, well…..almost. “Scroll down Jax, scroll down”.I swear he’s been laughing at me ever since! He’ll never let me live this down I fear.
……remember when you said we’d be going on a walk before work??
This picture was actually taken months ago when I was working on my (now) daughter-in-law’s wedding jewelry, but I just love this picture. “THE LOOK” is what Jax uses right before he loses all patience and throws one of his signature tantrums (consisting of making rapid, spastic circles on the rug while trying to attack his tail) if he doesn’t get his way. Unfortunately for him, none of us take him seriously and most often we just chuckle and go back to what we are doing. It’s so tough being the youngest in the household!
Jax is always more than willing to pitch in and help with household chores. In actuality, he is no different than any other toddler that wants to be a ‘big boy’, and big boy he definitely is! That limb he is charging around our property with is no lightweight. If only I could harness this energy (or put him to work cleaning the studio space!). As it is his primary talent in the studio is ‘sweeping’ every object on any work surface onto the floor. We call it Table Surfing and he gets a shiny gold star every time for thoroughness.
