I started the Nutrisystem so I could re-norm my portion size. I have lost weight already.
 Here is a picture of my "special" cabinet.
My breakfast.

Dogs in a Blanket

Sandy likes the comfort of being under the blankets. I have wanted to capture her blanket face for some time. She has had to be rescued before because she turns around and gets stuck. It's a hoot.

Truth is only painful once

This week has given me serious grief. I wanted to skew the reality but as always truth has a way of prevailing irrespective of your wishes. So I guess once the truth is apparent all you can do is accept it. As painful as it can be the great thing about truth is you only have to face it once.

Then move on.

The ultimate card design

I have so many obsessions my mind never stops for long on one idea or image. But I have been contemplating what is the ultimate card design? Is there an iconic design that grabs the view? Does a composition exist that has universal appeal? If there was.... what does it look like.... does it include color... composition..texture?

Certainly this card is simple yet brilliant.

Similar  but softer.

My search continues for the classic design that can be altered but stays true.

Brian needed another driveway.

Brian needed another driveway for his fleet. Our third driveway became a reality this summer. From my vantage point in my second story studio I captured Floyd and his team as they worked in 90 degree heat.

 How did I end up here? A place I never thought I'd be. The same place I watched others struggle from as I safely stood in the shadows. There's no strategy available to me I'm at the mercy of others. I'm about to burst inside while around me all is calm. Shit. Breathe. So be it.

Lampwork in Pink

Pink glass comes in some skunkie colors, so when I found a rod in CIM I wanted to try it out. After the fact of course, I wish I'd bought more. Having gone crazy with Double Helix I was showing restraint. This necklace has several brands of glass but the purest pink is CIM. Mixing the pinks and alternating etching made the final outcome pleasing.
