My Contemporary Art History class is evidently going to involve visiting a lot of galleries. That could be interesting, and if nothing else, walking around town is generally nicer than sitting in a classroom looking at slides and failing to stay awake. Today we went to one of the many galleries in Pioneer Square. From there it was convenient to continue on to Uwajimaya and get some bottles for use in my sculpture assignment. I got some fish too, while I was at it, and made spicy tuna rolls.
Some of my beads came today, too. Now I have yellow jade for Venus, azurite-malachite for Earth, and some kind of jasper (leopard, I think) for Mars. This silly bead project has turned into kind of an ongoing expensive obsession. I really would like to make the solar system necklace work, though, because I think I can do a better version of it than some of the other ones I've seen. Admittedly, those others did include a few that were meant to be fun projects for gradeschool students to work on, but still.
I still need to find the right kind of small tumbled hematite chips, for use in the asteroid belt, and something small for Pluto. Poor no-longer-a-real-planet Pluto.
