yesterday art: touched up the photoshopped picture a bit; took some photographs of squirrels

today: ...more photos? ok...didn't really do anything of much value today, besides doodle on the white board while in the lab. i'm too tired by the time i get home

whew! long day...glad i opted to start up earlier in the summer with this research, rather than wait until later...i'm already feeling lazy after a week off of school.

jumped straight into work today, started up an experiment that yielded some bright yellow solid...gotta wait until tomorrow to see what it is. also today:
-changed the nitrogen tank on the glovebox twice (i think it might have ran out when i left, too, which means i get to change it again tomorrow)
-made up some aqua regia
-got rid of a lot of leftover chemicals from last summer - all into the organic/inorganic waste bottle...which ended up bubbling and starting to smoke
-got to smell the leftover chemicals (some were the sulfur compounds, and thus had that rotten-egg-well-water-sprinkler-system smell, which is bad, but i'm used to it...others had a very pungent odor that smelled like a mix between a nail salon and an olive garden dinner left to sit in the sun for a week...that was not plesant)
-made a base bath for cleaning the glassware
-probably other stuff too...

yesterday's art: continuation of the photoshop work...did the hair (i think it's finished...)
today's art: added something small to the background (an octopus)...i'd do more, but it's late and i'm tired...

yesterday/today's artwork (ongoing): photoshopped face of indeterminate background, lots of greens and blues for the shadows, which ended up coloring the general mood of the piece

of note: lots of 'splashdown' songs listened to during...

soooo...introductory explanation thingy...
had a spur-of-the-moment decision to do an artwork-a-day thing this summer (any medium).
gonna post what i did each day as motivation to keep up momentum.

today's artwork: painted a ceramic tumbler...dark red-brown with bright-omg-my-eyes red detailing

of note: went with mengdi and ana...had nice conversation and listed to much good music during (though i didn't notice many 'i really like this' songs as i usually do when i go there); vow not to do scribbly designs on near-vertical surfaces again...too much drip potential; will be ready for pick-up by saturday (i think)
