I'm going to write super fast tonight because I want to get out to see the lunar eclipse. Of course, it's Idaho, so there's clouds. Good luck seeing the moon! We're going to try anyway. I have spent a majority of the day outside working in my back yard. Kevin got it mowed again while … Continue reading Garden coming along
Mornings that typically see me writing today saw me pulling splinters out of my hands. Someday I swear I'll be smart enough to wear work gloves. I knew I got a couple splinters while I was working outside yesterday, but I couldn't believe that I hadn't gotten them fully out yesterday (the pains of being … Continue reading Changes of the day
Some while back, I had two posts about a painting I was working on. I finally got back to that painting. Find post 1 here. Find post 2 here.

I completely sold out of the magnets I had on hand at FanX. I haven't … Continue reading Palladium – Chapter 27
When I'm painting, the whole world seems to disappear. Lately, I've been putting on the Gaia channel, usually to some interview or another, and listen to it while I paint.
