grape stems update

I spent several hours this afternoon prepping grape stems by painting them with clear mat acrylic medium, but I don't have anything to show for it except a place mat full of stiff grape stems. Which is good, but it's going to take a while to eat enough grapes to have enough stems again to actually start working. So I'm definitely open to accepting stem donations - just leave me a note here.

I also spent a while fiddling around with Dragon Bones, but that only led me to the conclusion that I have to buy an amaryllis bulb and let it grow roots. I think I'm in a bit of a creative lull.

No, don't worry, I'm not going to mail you grape stems!

But I wondered what comments you got about your work from the last show. Or if you had anything else to add about that.

You can, seriously. Mail them to me, I mean.

I haven't had the chance to get back to the space since I volunteered 2 weeks ago...
