Domesticated Diva? Maybe (or not)

March 20, 2008

Maybe not.  I mean, I just cleaned my keyboard and you’d be shocked to see the amount of crap that fell out – does that count?  How ’bout two runs to Costco in two days?  Um, what about buying curtain rods over at Ikea?

No? Well I feel domesticated.   But maybe that’s just because I played a rousing game of Bunco (and won!!) last night.  Then again, I’m just having a little fun spending my husband’s raise.  Of course, he might see it in quite the same light.  But hey, I have my first paying client today so it’s not like I don’t bring in my own money, right?  It’s a start at least.

I can’t believe I missed Wordless Wednesday, again.  Maybe I should just add it to my calendar so I get a reminder.

Well, I guess that’s it for me today.   Happy Thursday!

Does He Have a Good Eye or What?

March 19, 2008

Last week, as you may recall, the hubs was in Austin for SXSW.  While out at night, running between gigs, he passed this gallery.  He said he actually stopped and pulled out his camera to take a picture of the painting below – he said it reminded him of me and my friend and former roommate back in NM.  He thought so much of it, he actually took a picture of the stores contact info so we could track it down.


The artist is Kathy Womack.  The above painting is part of the Women & Wine collection.  As a mother of three she lives vicariously through the women in her paintings.  Her paintings are just gorgeous and I can’t seem to look away from the above image – though her other paintings are beautiful and engaging as well.

I really wish we had an extra room (with plenty of wall space) to get one of her paintings.  She even made plates out of the images – so cool and what I’d be asking for for my birthday if we had some place to store them.
