Painting!

LOL! Thank you all for your suggestions on my Animal Cracker! (Especially for the re-imagining by Wendy, very helpful!). I must say though, that I think I'm more confused than when I began....

Matt's getting ready to go off to work - we spent the morning running errands, buying groceries, etc. I've got a big pot of chili cooking on the stove for later tonight - it's going to be really good. Great Northern Beans, chipotle pepper, tomatoes, tomatillos, other peppers, black beans, corn, salsa verde, vegetarian-meat crumbles sauteed in olive oil, fresh cilantro, cumin, other spices, yum!

At any rate, I'm off to paint! I'm still working on a BIG painting with LOTS of faeries, all different types and sizes - I think it's going to be quite a masterpiece, if I do say so myself, hehe.....

You may watch my progress here!

A good mood!

I'm in such a good mood - for one thing, I got my emailbox down to the LIGHTEST it's ever been in YEARS. Only 18 emails in there ::::GASP:::: They are all ones I need to leave as reminders for tomorrow or that I still need to respond to. Wow - I'm in shock! It's been forever since I've been able to get my inbox in the two digits!!!

On top of that, I've finished what might be one of The Best Paintings I've Ever Painted. Not to get your hopes up, or anything ;) I'm so happy with how it turned out - it's so big (16"x20", big for me!) and gorgeous I can't believe it. Not to toot my own horn or anything ;) It has so many faeries in it, of all sorts, and I love it! I'm far too drained to scan it in tonight, but I should have it ready by tomorrow. You can kinda see it on my webcam right now here but it's sideways and kinda blurry, lol. I'll put it up on eBay tomorrow. As much as I hate to - I'd really like to keep this one. I guess I'll have to make do with a print. I'm half-tempted to stick in my eBay store for $10,000.00 or something.... But no, I think I'll start it off at a penny as always.

OK - I'm going to check out everybody's latest LJ activity and then do some reading. I'll get to some more painting tomorrow ;)
