There is just something about monkeys and goats.  I have a metal goat in my backyard and somewhere I have a sock monkey or at least I use to have one.

Simple is nice.  Although creating this piece had many, many steps, it looks minimal to me.

One thing I like about the 52 Pickup is that the background took many steps to complete and the foreground is basically simple with most having three elements.

Don't you just want this guy to 'say cheese' so that his expression changes?

It feels good to be back working on my art since my trip.  I have had to ease back into it as I just did not have the energy.  I guess that was jet lag.  Life does go on and household duties claimed some of my time.  I made four trips to the Goodwill with stuff from the garage.  I put some things out on the busy street near my cul de sac with a free sign and within minutes they had disappeared.  I like that someone will get use out of those old pieces of furniture.  I am working on two pieces for the NW Collage Society show coming up.  The deadline is November 30.  So I have to get busy and finish the pieces in the next two weeks.

If you were thinking that since the name of this series is 52 Pickup that there would only be 52 cards.  Well, I did do the joker but also I did the backside of each card.  So guess what?  There are 52 plus more of the cards to go! :-)

This one is one of my favorites of the pack.  When I found this piece of ephemera I just had to use it.

52 Pickup 50

Getting over jet lag has taken a few days but I think I am pretty much back on my schedule.  It is funny that when you take a trip and are in the midst of it, it is real.  Then you return home and the trip is over and you only have memories.  It is almost as if it is unreal.  Does that sound strange?

I love the headdress of this character in number 50.
