Did another bird painting and did a cone 8 test today. I think it is wrong to switch clay bodies at this time. I have a bunch of cone 5 stuff to get out and need to tend to business. March seems far away but it will be here before we know it. I ask the city of Pasco to let me talk to their Cultural Council but they refuse to even respond to my emails now. I guess it is what it is. I will never understand why any city would stonewall artists who want to share their vision, even in a family atmosphere. The bird painting thing is bugging me. Othello wants some bird paintings to be with my featured pottery and I can do it but really do not want to screw the Walla Walla show up which is also in March. Dilemmas!
