International Talk Like A Pirate Day has come and gone, and I missed it. I had a lot of fun with it last year, and had planned to do something again for this year but time (and inspiration!) ran out. Instead I did an inventory of the bisques here in the studio. These are the “unstarted” horses. There’s another set almost as big that are in some way started, with bases colored, hooves done or patterns drawn on. Most of these guys are mine, either for future sales or my own collection, but a few are outstanding obligations from past trades or show donations. I wanted to make sure I had a handle on just how far I was from resolving those, since that was my year-end goal.
So alas, no piratey treasure this year. Too busy dispatching the Hoards of Greenware (gone, every last one of them!) and beating off the Backlog Beast.
