Well, I found this picture on my phone with still wet paint…since I forgot to take a picture before I sent it on its way, this is the best I’ve got!
My friend Bobbie emailed me after I posted this with a picture she had snapped for me of the second picture (they are a pair)! Thank you!

Last week that is. They were amazingly simple to make and so yummy it makes me never ever want to eat store bought again. Thank goodness they were so yummy because my felafels were a complete flop! Disintegrating completely when I put them in the oil to fry oh well, better luck next time. We just threw some ham in there, rolled them up, and that was dinner haha. You can find the recipe here http://www.mybissim.com/2011/10/homemade-tortillas/ thank you pinterest!
Or at least a part of me is…I find it fascinating that even though I have never visited anywhere not surrounding North Cacky Lack, at least my artwork is venturing out. It is not because I am boring (even though maybe I am a little) or don’t have the desire, I have just
have not forced my hubby to get a passport and take me. had the opportunity, one of these days I will travel somewhere outside of surrounding states! These pretty little packages are on there way to Alabama. In my haste of completing paintings, planning Liam’s one year birthday (I can’t believe it has been a year since he was born :’() caring for two little boys and a million other things, I realized I forgot to take a picture. Not only of these but the last ones I finished too, some of my favorites. These packages contain one that looks like this:
and one that has a blue background with a Dr. Seuss saying on it in white and yellow. It turned out so good, but there is no way I am unwrapping that package to snap a picture. It said:
Today YOU are YOU,
that is truer than true.
There is no one alive
more YOUER than YOU.
Thank you Kira!
Pencil sketch: I drew this portrait of Grandma Edna Allen when I was somewhere around 14 I think…didn’t know much about composition at the time, obviously. It has floated around for years, you can see a few stains here and there. Mom asked if I would add her dress on, hence the seam, I still had the same notebook I used back then so it wasn’t too difficult. After carefully taping it together, my dear hubs cut a piece of plexiglass to fit the frame she wanted to use, Hobby Lobby cut a mat for me. Amazing how difficult it is to find an oval mat, or someone who cuts them.
