Big Ol' Tree Redux

 You know how it's kind of a bummer when you're painting something in your bathroom with wood stain,
and then it makes the whole house smell like gasoline?...You know, and then you have to explain to your housemate's 4-year-old daughter why there's a giant piece of wooden artwork in your bathtub?

Does that not happen to everybody? Because there's definitely some tree art in my bathtub right now, and it's making the whole first floor smell like gasoline. Not cool. This is the plight of an artist, I guess. Having to clarify to your housemates that no, there's not a gas leak - I just felt like doin' some wood stain. It's a twin of this artwork I did a while ago, one of my favorites. I liked it so much that I decided to another... although I don't know what exactly I'm going do with it yet. For the moment, I'm satisfied with it giving my bathtub an artsy look.

Zetterberg played zero games after Feb. 8.At the general managers meeting last month, Columbus Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen tried to put his own injury epidemic in perspective in terms of man-games lost. “One of my colleagues upstairs told me that if you have 400 or 300-and-something, you cheap sale jerseys have no chance of making the playoffs,” he said.Yet wholesale jerseys shop the NFL Jerseys Store Wings made it last season, anyway. The real surprise was that team, not this one.
