Egg Salad Sally

Egg Salad Sally, originally uploaded by catbishop.

Egg Salad Sally was inspired by two hillbilly encounters I had yesterday. Truly I have no ill feelings toward these people but sometimes it's like being on another planet. The first was at the scrapyard, an old chevy van backed up next to me and started to unload a giant amount of rusty metal objects and gross old appliances. Along with all the metal out spilled two toddlers oblivious to the dangers of being barefoot in a scrapyard. Their smoking Mama didn't seem to notice either. This old copper stew pot came from that family, it has a forged rusty iron handle and some nice copper patina.

The second encounter was at the post office where an old hillbilly man who I developed a crush on was asked the usual "anything liquid,fragile or hazardous question?" and he replied "That there's just a big ol box ah eggsalad." He thought his joke was pretty funny and continued to ramble on about the dangers of egg salad in the mail, spoilage and all.

New etsy prints

People keep asking me to sell prints of my art photos so I am trying to happily comply. I spent what seemed like all day messing with my photo program and researching online photo printing services. All I can say is if people don't buy them I want this day back.

Irma, originally uploaded by catbishop.

Irma is all curvy woman, she and Rachel were inspired by "maids" my family had when I was little. They were large woman who wore support hose that their thighs bulged out of the top of (see Rachel's legs) and they always watched "The Edge of Night" while ironing. I have fond memories of them in the house. Once me amy best friend got into big trouble with Rachel for eating an entire box of Aids dieting chocolates. I guess it was my mom's she was always dieting.... i guess that company had to change their name after the disease sprung up.


RACHEL & IRMA, originally uploaded by catbishop.

My son was kind enough to allow me to use the vintage croquet set we haven't used much. The balls are wonderful old painted wood, I got more excited about them than anyone should. Also thanks to two great etsy friends Lorimarsha and Aorta who sent me "junk" that ended up in these.
