Back to India








(Artists, check out the awesome reflected light on her face!)

Tomorrow it's back to India, for round 2 of work for the natural-clothing company that we're starting. I bought an anti-pollution mask with a charcoal filter to try wearing in traffic this time. I should probably wear it non-stop rather than just in traffic, but I get claustrophobic, so I'll do the best I can with it.

So I guess "y'all" will have to wait a couple of weeks to see the last two white paintings, and then I'll put 'em together and photograph that (still not sure in what configuration[s] they'll go).

-----

I am going to miss my animolecules so bad...not to mention I hate missing out on some of the time that Gadjo will be little (I just love it when they're kittens and you can carry them with one hand, and scoop them up as they go running by). He's going to be gigantic in two weeks. The other day he went in for his first vaccinations and got weighed again, and in a week he had increased 30% in size. Not kidding. The vet was astonished. I think he's going to be really long and tall and have really long legs.


I'm going to be so homesick. Sigh.

Be careful, be well, I am excited for you. I wish I could take care of the purrrry wee ones, but alas I am too far away.

What a great sequence of photos; I especially love the second one.

I hope your trip is safe, productive and you don't get sick. Maybe carry some PeptoBismol along, which can help ward off some GI issues.

Maybe you can post some updates while you're out there :)? Either way, we'll see you when you return.

Have a safe journey Jala and look after your health as best you can! Love the green cloth pics!

Jala, what colours! Gorgeous. Love the folds. I also enjoy your pussy cats... and thought that your new white paintings have to be inspired by them, which, (the paintings) by the way I love... but think you need to do them LARGE! I have such an abstract side in me yearning to break out! Have a wonderful time in India...

Ooooh, another trip for gorgeous photos!!! I BET you'll miss your babes. Tell me, how do you get all your cats to get along? People tell me their cats never get along unless they come from the same littler. We have a little truce going on here. Harry loves Isabelle, but she'd push him under a train without a second thought... Safe journey!
