And you know what? Today is a week and it's almost done! Continue reading

Just a quick observation today. I've been working on portraits lately. Here's the routine: Step 1) sketch the face, apply underpainting, apply more paint, apply more paint, stare at it with head cocked, apply more paint, look from reference photo... Continue reading

Do you rescue things, too? And, by rescue, I mean drag home things in need of repair or things with no real use to you, but they have a cool patina, shape, etc. Now, if you actually refinish that table... Continue reading

I just made Samurai mini burgers which were amazing. Can't wait to try these with Terra chips and ice tea on a warm summer evening on the patio! You cookin'? :)

And I'd like to leave you with a thought: You might be afraid to think big, take a chance, grab your dream by the hand and shout "let's go!"
