Secret evil plan underway. watch this space.

Tea for one

So I've finally started to bring the elements from this blog and my website ( together - I've done an oil painting of something I own, and will be selling it at the Port Credit Outdoor Art Show this weekend. Come on down and check it out!

Friday: 4pm to 9pm
Saturday: 11am to 8pm
Sunday: noon to 5pm

Unfortunately the photo doesn't really do the painting credit - I had to use my camera phone, as the digital camera is sulking.

Anyone have a used Canon Rebel or Nikon D60 for sale?

Bottled Up

I may not have many irregular objects, but I do have some cylindrical objects, which is what I needed for the next exercise from the book "Drawing From Observation"

In fact, these are all containers for various types of alcohol.


Anyway, we've got a couple of cans of Strongbow, a large red wine bottle, a smaller white wine bottle, and a small bottle of Kahlua, which is great in the winter, but not so good for hot weather drinks. Instead, I've been drinking gin based cocktails - I even made up my own. Do you want the recipe? Of course you do!

Simple Suzeeee
1 oz gin
1/2 oz simple syrup
splash lime
Add to a pint glass filled with ice. Top with 1 can of club soda. Sip slowly while watching the local rednecks test out their new dirt bike by towing it behind their truck... with a rope.
