Om nom nom nom..... a coconut dream donut from Monuts!
And Naomi and I just transplanted six dozen little seedlings into their little peat pots, and somehow we STILL have more to transplant- I think I may have overdone it! And for reals, Spring needs to get here already. The weekend should be beautiful, but then it's going to get cold again, and I'm so tired of winter.... sniffle sniffle sniffle..... *cue the crickets*

Where did this come from? I have no idea! Sometimes a painting comes into your mind and you have to just roll with it.... I do seem to be developing a bit of a *thing* for helmets, though, don't I? Interesting.

so, two works in progress for you, and more to come tomorrow :)

hah! I knew it. I'm going to have to start coming up with some better titles, though, it's such a cool concept but titles are HARD.
I find it interesting that I gave a submarine robot goldfish teeth, though. much weirder than the headlamp, at least to me.

maybe I could set up a kickstarter and get some help moving to the equator? I'd have a nice little farm, and build lots of little houses so you all could come and visit....

Got a wonderful photo this time! On the other hand, the photos of the painting I just finished of my little Naomi as a lighting bug are so bad they're almost enough to make me swear off dark background- gah!
Still.... fruit tart.... OM NOM NOM NOM!

I WAS going to share a lovely little fruit tart I painted today, but all the photos I took of it were so dreadful that I've decided to just try again tomorrow- hopefully the light will be better :) I'm sure I'll also play with it a little more, knowing me.... hopefully that will be a good thing!

A butterfly coming out for springtime, yay! My focus was mainly on the chrysalis, honestly, as a reference for another painting I'm doing.... but I made sure to include the gorgeous blue of her outer wings peeking around.

My little Naomi picked a hyacinth for me this morning when we were out in the yard! It smells so beautiful :) Trying a slightly larger painting, this time....
If you're wondering how to do it yourself- cut a meyer lemon in half, hopefully not cutting any of the seeds in the process. Fish out the slippery little boogers, and stick them in your mouth to suck off all the citrus-ey-ness. Put directly in a 1/2" deep hole in soft, moistened soil in a warm place. Keep damp, and you should see them coming up in 2 or 3 weeks. Beautiful little things....

.... because it's a fail. I've been feeling super-uninspired today. I thought that this crocus that Naomi picked for me would help, and it made me feel happy, but did not bring back my painting mojo. We'll see how that goes.... love you guys anyways....

My little girl gave this flower to me this morning :) Isn't that just the best feeling? I confess, I am hoping this one doesn't sell, and then I'll keep it forever and ever.... ok, I might even take it back of etsy. Just because I loooooove it that much....
Also, if there was a list of the ten things most hated by artists, I think glare would be towards the top of the list. Augh!

Isn't this just the cutest thing? This morning the Little One and I transplanted a few of our seedlings that had gotten big enough- some black cherry tomatoes and some green globe artichokes- and I just had to paint this little one. Yay, springtime!

My beautiful sister in law had her bridal shower the other day, which had a gorgeous Breakfast at Tiffany's thing going, or something like that.... I brought home one of the favors boxes, and I think I'm going to be painting it a lot in the near future :D

And here, our marvelous goldfish submarine has risen to the surface and is cruising along under the stars. For some reason there is spy-movie music playing in my head right now. Or maybe it's Perry the Playtpus's spy theme song...

It has been a strange week.... and to top it all off, it looks like I'm going to have to head down to the post office and kick some butt next week, since a couple of packages are lost in the ether :-/ I'm sure it will work out, I've never had them misplace one *permanently* but still....
I'm ready for it to be springtime already!
