Oil painting WHAT?!!1!
Unemployment book-ended by full-time work is the best thing ever. I feel great. I've been doing a lot of things, namely finishing my curtains, cleaning the apartment, and finishing this massive oil painting as a pseudo-surprise housewarming present for my parents, who have just bought a condo in Hawaii and don't read this blog.
It's not quite done yet, but another session and I think it might be there. This was my first time working in oils since art school, and it was surprisingly easy.
I've just started making some bad-ass recycled refrigerator magnets:
In addition to that, I'm baking a lot, doing some freelance, and reading a lot of library books. Aaaah...what a life. :)
