I've spent most of the week spinning around. No, not another trip to Disney, durn it. I've had some vertigo. Which, while being unpleasant and makes me very unproductive, is not serious. Very, very, very unpleasant, but could've been worse.... Continue reading

Sometimes, a paint pour doesn't go the way you'd hope. The other day, I had one blah result after another. I'd scrape off the canvas after swirling the colors into a muddy grey, and start again just to get more... Continue reading
