I have had a relationship with this food for DECADES. I would hardly call it a favorite. More like an addiction, or an obsession. Yes, complete with withdrawals and late night trips to the neighbors in extreme emergencies. When scrambling, ransacking the pantry to find any bag or box to make doesn't come up with the nightly fix. I LOVE POPCORN.

This is my favorite cow drawn with markers. It is a wooden cow on wheels and probably the first in my collection. I purchased it from an artist friend, many many years ago. Stuart Burton. He had a frame shop in San Diego.

"This is silly, but soothing to me. From my computer monitor I can "talk" to friends and family, read, play games, look at pictures, listen to music, and sell things. Buy things, create things, learn things and explore. I like it."

About a month ago she sent me this little gift and I became obsessed with them again.
I would like to do a paper mache of the only woman in the group.
She is the goddess of music, fine art, eloquence and literature. There are certain elements she is usually depicted with. These are: a mandolin, a jade, and a snake. These are my first sketches of what my goddess will look like.
These are my new sketches, showing the goddess with a paint brush, the mandolin at her side, wearing a robe (that resembles my own robe) a jade hanging from her neck and standing on the snake.
The graphic on the left is her back view.
The circle to the right is my pretend Japanese signature.

Oil on Canvas board
Figure Class with Kim Farley
Saturday, November 17, 2007
I started this while with my figure drawing group. It's a wooden rooster. Today I added watercolor and little shapes to the different sections of the rooster. I think the style is folk art but I'm really not sure.

I tried to create a "tag" with my name. The first 2 were x rated so I couldn't share them on my blog. Here are the others:
On this page I wrote some things the artists said at the end of the movie and my nickname: Lyd.

Tuesday started out with a delivery for the Small Image Show in Encinitas. I also picked up artwork that was in the Escondido Art Partnership Show where one of my pieces won an honorable mention.
This map shows my trip to the DENTIST and back. YUCK!!!
