I think this has been the busiest Thursday ever for FanX. My favorite costume of the day? Jafar with my magic lamp. When I handed it to him, some lady walking by said, “You just gave him his every hope and dream!” I laughed and said said I was evil like that. I’m pet sure … Continue reading FanX 2022 day 1
It’s that time of year again. Yes, time for FanX. It’s starts tomorrow and runs through Saturday. It felt so amazing to walk the floor while everyone was getting set up. It’s like being home.

Yesterday while I was painting, I started several new ones. Here's one I decided to continue today. I really liked the background of this. I have a really hard time starting on a background that I like, but I knew that I needed to continue. So I started drawing lines. This so didn't match what … Continue reading Pink trees

This is a painting I'd started awhile back and I knew it would have crystals in it, but I was brave enough to finish it today. Here it is: Crystal painting6″x4″ acrylic on canvas panel©2022 Dawn Blair Now, … Continue reading Crystals again
I’m about to go play with some markers. But I remembered that before I did that, I needed to write my blog.

I’ll … Continue reading Sketchbook
I finished the last of 6 charcoal tree drawings at the show today. Then I tried to write, but it was too hot under the canopy and sitting outside was hard to do. Yesterday, it was cold and we had a wind which kept it chilly throughout the day. Today, we got heat and no … Continue reading More charcoal trees
While out at the show today, a couple suggested that I watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society because movie was about a writer. Netflix claimed that it had a 55% chance that I'd like it. This is what happens when your children have ruled your queue for years. I did like the … Continue reading Charcoal drawings

Well, my subconscious was not a good place to be last night. I woke up from a terrible elevator/earthquake dream last night. Temmy came in then and tried to curl up with me (on my face). She kept trying to comfort me by sticking her paw up (in my face). I didn't even sleep well … Continue reading Held back
I spent the afternoon, or the later part of it, writing. I feel like I'm about to finish Siva's book and I probably have a couple thousand words or so left to it. It excites me that I'm so close to being done with this book, though I'm torn about what I'm going to go … Continue reading Whole squash? Will it cook?
