Spice rack


Today I decided to give my locking, popping elbow a rest. I plan to resume painting on Wednesday.
Last night was a fitful, sleepless one. The creative juices were flowing through my veins ( no, it wasn't wine) .
I found this wooden crate in a storage room in the basement and decided to make a spice rack. It took forever placing the wire on the backs of all the little paintings. There was quite a lot of measuring going on; too much for my non-existing left brain to handle.
I know they aren't perfectly straight, but I can't do anything straight.
All my life I have tried and tried. I just try to accept it as part of my quirkiness. I am hoping others will too.
The bazaar is just 4 weeks away. For those of you that don't know, I am a vendor in a European bazaar. It is March 14-16th on Patch Barracks in Stuttgart, Germany. There are vendors from all over Europe. I am really excited to be accepted and a bit scared. This is my first time doing anything like this.
I have just a few more paintings left to complete.

Thanks for all the nice comments-everyone. I had a horrible dream last night about the bazaar. Some man decided to sit down in the middle of my booth and his dog pee-peed all over my work!
