oh wait! I see something...damn!!!

There always something, just when you think you have finished, so I grabbed the brushes and back to work. I really want to finish because in the morning I and six other artists are headed to Beijing for 4 days of fun and seeing the sights (my second time), I'll be the tour guide for some of the group. On our list of to do, 798 Art district, Great Wall, Forbidden City and Summer Palace (I've not seen). We booked the hotel, The Beijing Traditional Hotel in the old Hutong district near the Forbidden City, a nice place. We are taking the high speed train which will take 6 hours hitting speeds of 250 km per hour...should be fun.

Tada!!!! Finito...6:33 pm on 8.12.11

Damn! wish I was finished

Last few minutes of step 4 (highlight)

Day at the Crafts Expo, Aug. 7, 2011

Crafts Expo in Changchun, China was a busy day. These two women were showcasing their traditional ethnic costumes from a region in southern China.

Development Zone Exhibit Hall centered around Sculpture Park

This Exhibit Hall was a spectacular sight with dynamic exhibits of futuristic advances in nano technology, bio-technology and all other types of technology. The Exhibit was staffed with tall, sleek model-like women with form-fitting business skirts all delivering their presentations with the latest developments using laser pointers identifying various locations on the High Technology Development Zone and Sculpture Park. The Park is where my sculpture will eventually be exhibited. Everything was extremely impressive. Then I had to use the rest-room, and what a slap back to reality. I mean, the old style traditional Chinese toilet, a hole in the ground, and of course no toilet tissue to be found. Talk about juxtapositioning.
