Slackorama



I've been really slack with my studio and it has taken a full year to get it into a place that I'm happy to work in. I've also just managed to get some stuff up on the walls. At the back is a messy inspiration board on a large canvas my sister gave me a few years back. The other is a painting by a guy I went to uni with. Each year we had an Arts Auction and in my final year I was in charge of writing down all the sale details. I sat with a 4 litre cask of Fruity Lexia and went a little crazy bidding on things to try and get the price up to raise more money. A few times I got caught out and ended up winning about 4 artworks. This is my favourite, although it has scared a few housemates in the past who said they "didn't want it hanging in the lounge room".

I've put a few more Able and Game cards up over on the Etsy shop, if you're an Amazing Race fan, or just creepy, then you're in luck!

I remember fruity lexia well, but that was a very long time ago for me. PS: I have tagged you for a game on my blog.

Fruity lexia and auctions are a bad, bad combination!
