20 January 2010
It has been pouring over here in Southern California, but I have missed the rain and it is so very nice to be home and listening to it. Although, once I pick up Natalie from school and go to Chuck E. Cheese for a party, the rain should still be nice.
I wanted to share a few new works with everyone. I finally put up the original drawing of 'lupinus lupus' that I drew some time back. I really love how it came out EXACTLY like I imagined it. I love the colors, the softness of the lupines and of course, the wolves. I think it would make a great tattoo, but that's just me.
I also did a drawing for someone I have known since she was a babe. A beautiful and smart woman now, I keep thinking about the days I used to babysit her so long ago. This is for Ari:
She is going to use the image to personalize her flip camcorder and I am pretty excited that she will truly have a one of a kind item! I am not sure which color option she is going with yet but I can't wait to see how it turns out.
I also put my first two lavender moons in the shop too. I need to get crackin' to add more things there, but that's it for now.
In other news, I was pretty inspired by this post on bread & honey. I too, am changing the way I look at food and how I eat. Trying to do more real foods, more veggies and using traditional fats (like butter instead of margarine). Oh, and cutting back on sugar too (which, I admit, some days I am good and other days, well...)
So, being inspired by how absolutely delicious her salad looked, I am boiling up a couple of eggs and getting ready to throw in some good old veggies in a nice salad for lunch. Speaking of food, here's a recipe I found on hellojenuine for baked mashed potato casserole. Must try that soon. In fact, I open to try really good, home cooked meals that will nourish and delight. If you have any favorite recipes and/or websites, I would love to see them. Happy rainy day!
