Bad Art I Am Compelled To Share

Pepe and the Dandelions

I've been playing with my acrylics again. I'm pretty, darn, happy with the way this one turned out. The painting's actual size is 4" x 4", or 10cm x 10cm. I made the canvas myself with some scrap wood and a piece of muslin. Actually, I built the canvas just like a tiny theater flat. (Finally, something I learned in high school came in useful!)

I have been busy as Hell lately, painting and repairing the house my mom just bought. I'm tired, my body is sore, and I still have a couple of weeks of hard work ahead of me. So, today, I took the day off.

I did only two things today. I made the above painting and I baked a cake.


I think I'm going to take tomorrow off too.

Did you ever get your cake and eat it too? Did you ever want to leave some cake love?

My good friends Mame and Eric have moved to MN. I was thinking of them when I drew this picture. I'm thinking of sending them the original print as a house warming gift.

Just for fun, I made a colored digital version of the pic.

Now, I have to go, because I'm in the middle of a big bike race. Someday I will catch up on my blog, but not today.

Have you ever been sooo busy you couldn't think straight and you started losing sleep and acting like a grump to all the people closest to you and then felt like a big jerk, but still didn't really have the time to slow down yet? Have you left any love lately?
