Back in the studio after surgery working on southernisms.
I’m as Nervous as a Long-Tailed Cat in a Rocking Chair Factory, 2017.
I’d love to give a huge thank you to all that sent well wishes including flowers, cards, and presents! I feel very fortunate to have a great support group. After almost a week of sitting in my butt, the foot doc said I can get back in the studio as long as I don’t lift anything. Today I’ve carved two pieces on southernisms. These two are some of my favorites. Above is “I’m as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a rocking chair factory.” Below is “You’re grinnin’ like a fox crappin’ a peach seed.” These two will be going to the Southern Sampler show in NY. Tell me what you think. I have a list of more southernisms but I’m about to go back to southern music influences. I’ve been researching piles of Dolly images.
