Those of you who encouraged me to keep going with the blog.... thank you so much. I love you. Especially because this is the sort of thing that works for a daily painting. They're vertebra... I think from a pig. I've had them for the longest time and wanted to paint them, they just seemed so abstract that I didn't know if it would be able to work. I think it did!

Because you can never have too much garlic. I'm starting to feel a little better, but immune boosters are definitely a good idea at the moment! Also- yummy thick paint.
