There was one recent bit of creativity I can share: the above oil painting. I am not an oil painter... at all. Acrylic, watercolour? Good to go. Oils, not so much. And I do wish I had a knack for them so I drag them out once a year, toss something on a canvas and quickly put them away again when I see what I've made. It's not terrible, but it certainly isn't good. Like knitting, oil painting keeps me humble ;)
Speaking of humble... here's my new head shot.
I've always hating having my picture taken. Always. Most pictures of me look like they were taken by the paparazzi with my hand blocking the camera. I've been working on getting over that over the past couple of years because I've needed to provide head shots for this or that. Anyway, here's what I look like on a good day with perfect conditions. Yay, make-up!
Finally, the blog will be postless for a little while longer as I'm heading to Ottawa this weekend with my kid and mudder. My darling son keeps reminding me that I promised him a fancy Beaver Tail (a sort of street treat they sell there) 4+ years ago. "Please put away your hockey stick" he forgets in 15 seconds. "I'll get you a Beaver Tail next time" he keeps in the vault. At least he has his priorities straight.
P.S. There is now a 'Follow by email' option at the top right. xoxo
