Desk Drawer

I was cleaning out my office drawers in preparation for my move back to the city. Tali has been a fairly frequent (annual) visitor to my office and would often create art while she was there, so I found these:

I'm a bit sentimental as I see one picture is an early representation of her work, dating to perhaps 2001. However if being forced to choose between keeping her artwork or the following illustration, I'd have to give it some serious consideration:


I believe that was clipped from Rolling Stone magazine during Dubya's first campaign for President. Some things are hard to throw away.

You are one honest mom! I can see where it's hard to part with the later. Fortunately parting is such sorrow and November will be here shortly. I hope I'm resident of South Carolina but there's something so enticing about voting in this coming election in NY

The top is an excellent collection of Tali's pre-k period. I bet MOCA would be interested.

I was cleaning out my desk and found some art work Icy did when she was just a pup 14 years ago... Oh, sorry, that was just a newspaper we used when house breaking her. How'd that get in there!

Wow, you have to physically pack up and move huh? Well, at least working in the city should provide you some interesting blog fodder!

Ugh, cleaning up! Well, those don't take up too much space, so keep 'em both. And if you do throw away any kids pics, don't let them ever find out...ours have accidentally come across works of art that were "disposed of" and it wasn't pretty. Of course being buried under a huge mountain of my kids' drawings would be even worse. :)

you asked me to meet you for lunch in order to help with that move, didn't you? yeesh... and i thought it was to celebrate our nearly two years as NBFF's. heh... guess that explains your request for additional cardboard boxes...

LYMYMI, dearest of dear friends!! and i'll continue to do so even when you've relocated to parts, and i quote, "nearer". nearer to what, you ask -- why me(ish) i respond. and YAY for that!

lovelovelove Tali's artwork! gotta say that Bush/Cheney pic is a classic, as well. (i won't find it difficult at all to part with those two maroons) ; )

LOL Tom!

Tali is real good with colours.

Tali did nice work:) Moving can be exciting, and--exhausting. Hope it goes quickly for you.

Pia, heh well, I tossed a coin and am keeping both. I'm sure I'll be needing a good laugh or smile during the transition period. The polls are going to be electric for this election no matter where, but something about casting my vote in New York is pretty appealing :)

Doug, I didn't even get to her "Girl in Bed" series...

Tom & Icy, well that is considered art in some circles so hang on to it!

Jeff, well as physical as packing a few boxes can be. Movers will move the stuff :) Yeah, there's the blog angle. Of course transferring back to the heat of the subway in June was less than fortuitous timing.

Mother Theresa, yeah they're pretty compact. I know firsthand about the discovery of artwork in the recycling bin - "EEk, how did that get there?"

I've learned to be stealth in my review of the items and while the kids are in bed.

Neva, well we could eat as we pack, right? Don't forget the masking tape please. Nearer your heart of course, NBFF.

The Bush/Cheney pic certainly has a place in history I think :) LYMYMIEM!!!!! XOX


Ariel, she does have a keen eye. That Tom :)


Actonbell, thanks. It's moving along, what awaits me is another story...

I think they should both be wearing the T-shirts.

tsduff said...

I don't know why my comment never materialized away back then... I can't even remember what I wrote. I was just enchanted by your kiddo's artwork. I HAVE been reading you, but have been terribly scattered lately. I sincerely hope your new digs have been working out well in your normal (new) routine :)

G said...

Weirsdo, agree on that one.

Terry, don't you worry - I feel the shadow of your wings overhead. Yeah, everything's working out okay. My family seems more traumatized than I am that I no longer have an office.

Great post as for me. I'd like to read something more about that topic. Thanx for sharing that material.
