Unwinding a bit

"Wicker n' Cherries" ACEO can be bid on here.

To start off this week, the last full week of actual Summer, I’ve decided to keep it simple and indulge in some silliness. So, without further ado, I bring you another installment of:

Revelations From the Drawing Board

- Elderly women should never colour co-ordinate their entire outfit to match their artificial hair colour (you know of which colour I speak... “Smurf Blue”)

- Why is it that the signs that say “Watch for Children” don’t also tell you to stop for them?

- I’ve mentioned this one before. Guys, I don’t care how good your physique is, for the love of decency stop wearing spandex bike shorts! Blech!!

- If you just let someone talk continuously about themselves without interruption they’ll tell you a lot more embarrassing things about themselves than you think...like why they stuck crayons up their nose as a child and had to go to the hospital to have them removed.

- Keep a notebook and pen by your bedside because that important thing you forgot to tell someone/ do during the day you will invariably remember at 2:30 in the morning and without the notebook you’ll just forget again.

- When someone shouts “Heads-up!” it’s usually not a good idea to actually raise your head.

And finally...

- Unless you enjoy getting weird looks from complete strangers it’s probably best that you refer to your dogs as your “little minions” or “pack of flying monkeys” in the privacy of your own home.

Another reminder of the season to come!

That was a great set!

So, so true...

The textures in this piece are awesome, right down to the folds in the tablecloth.

Meg, that one came about after getting beaned in the noggin with a laundry basket. I can't even explain how that happened...

Lisa, thanks! I think I'm going to be doing more still lifes, that one was really fun and a challenge. Gotta keep pushing that envelope! :D
