I've begun on a new piece featuring a Maneki Neko (good luck Japanese Kitty god - usually with a raised paw) in the snow. I just started painting a snowy scene and I thought that there should be some jovial magic beast bringing the snow, so why not a Maneki Neko? He has a little nymph friend too. I'll probably be finished in not too long on this one - I might put up both pieces on eBay tonight for 10-day auctions (so they'll have enough time for eBay to get back to normal after the virus and blackout problems).
I'm hungry! I've been making these awesome sandwiches out of "Veat" brand vegetarian chicken breasts. They are one of the best vegetarian meat substitutes out there - OMG they are good. I pan fry them in olive oil and herbs, with a spicy marinade, and I make sandwiches on big kaiser rolls with provolone cheese, black olives, avacadoes, tomatoes, and ranch dressing. They are so freaking good, I've made them for us three times in the last week, lol. I'm out of them now though, I'll have to find something else =P
After lunch I'll resume working on my Maneki Neko of the Snow painting, I'll post a link to my webcam then =)
