Today I went to the baked potato truck for lunch.  The guy who runs makes a pretty good baked potato  but...he's weird and inappropriate.  My friend ordered her potato, but when I ordered mine he gave me the option for a sweet potato.  Which sounded pretty good until he said sweet potatoes are like female Viagra.  That's just so skeevy I have to share it with everyone.

Actually the sweet potato with spinach and cottage cheeze still does sound good,  I have to weigh that against dealing with the skeevy Russian dude...hmmm.

It really is a pretty good potato.

This painting is a wedding present for my friend/co-worker who is getting married.  She is obsessed with her dog.  I have been working on it for about a month, it took a lot of planning.  The background is a pattern from Victorian wallpaper.  I hope my friend likes it!

I really like Winsor Newton Renaissance Gold paint. It has a lovely sheen.

This painting is difficult to photograph well, unfortunately it's overcast today. I may have to try again with sunlight.

New Year Again

It's 2013.  How in the hell did that happen?  Last year was not a very good year.  I hope this one picks up a bit.


1. Drink a lot of tea.
2. Paint more than I did last year.
3. Meditate more often.

Also, I ended up with another cat about a month ago and I still haven't announced it properly.

And if you emailed me and I haven't written back yet I'm really sorry I'm just terribly behind on everything.

Happy Painting!
