I've gone completely wild for painting, especially with big old puddlely, watercolor and finger paints. I did 5 paintings this weekend, two of which were not miniatures for a change. I gotta find somewhere to keep them. they are getting out of hand.

You ever look at a painting up close. The strokes and daubs of paint can look messy and chaotic. I feel this way about my paintings. I hate every damn last one of them but when i see them all together in one place, I feel love for them. As a whole mess together I love the way they look.

Everyday sucks but at least i have someone to love and I'm learning how to paint. How's that for a bipolar outlook? :) Today I started painting with watercolors for a change of pace. I posted them on here and on turtlefairy.net. The next batch of projects I paint will all be watercolor...until I say so! muahaha!

This week on turtlefairy.net I'm learning how to paint Japanese food. So far I've painted two sushis which I have on deviant also for view. I've really got a long way to go before anything I do looks realistic. But painting sushi is still fun. The next two projects are already online and they are 3 little smiling onigiri rice balls and a cup of o-cha that i got when I ate at Yuki Hana today.

I'm still working nearly everyday to learn how to paint. I'm listing my progress on turtlefairy.net. Painting is wicked hard for me and nothing ever turns out like I think it will. The things I think will be easy turn into nightmares and the things I think will wipe the floor with me turn out better than I expect. Its really pushing my abilities. I don't think I've ever been so challenged.

Added a couple more flower paintings and one of a slug in red and black. I added a couple of drawings to my daughter's deviant page also. She is chikopii on deviant art. This week on turtlefairy.net I'll be finishing up the last flower, a cala lily and moving on to butterflies/lovely winged insects.

Lately I've been posting old poetry just to get it up. I used to have cleaned up versions of all these poems but they've been lost to time. All I have is this one notebook. Some of them are very silly. Some are good. Most are crap :P.

I've started a new website for painting idea called www.turtlefairy.net. It hasn't been picked up by the search engines yet so its slow going. I'm doing a painting idea and a project example a day on the site. We had skulls, now i'm working on flowers. Its a blog of me learning to paint and is kind of funny.

I'm worried I'm gonna have to pack up and move. I live with two men who are always really mad about that. Then I'll be a starving artist for sure. I added a practice section for the scrappy drawing i do daily.
