pink rose cupcake daily pastel painting
6″ by 6″ daily pastel painting, unframed

It was a bit difficult to get started today mostly because I wasn’t sure what to paint, so I searched my hard drive and picked a random cupcake photo to work from.
I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. My sister and her family came from New York and they all stayed overnight. We had a wonderful celebration!
I’ve been busy with web design work for the past week. I’ve designed a few blog banners and edited some php and css code. I used a wordpress template to design the sites but you’d never know because I recoded it. Now the owner of the websites can edit her site from the backend in wordpress without having to ftp. You can see them here and here. Once I get started with web design and coding it’s almost like painting. It’s so much fun that it’s hard to switch gears. Yes, I’m a bit of a geek.
Anyway, while working I thought it might be fun and useful to create a site for bloggers who need some help with coding, image preparation and anything else that could be a potential question. I made a new blog with information that I learned over the years. Here’s the link – Blogging Basics and More. I’m hoping to update it on a weekly basis.
wasp photoNo, it’s not a painting but I just had to upload it. I was cleaning the pool deck and there was a wasp (I think it’s a wasp) in a dormant state inside the umbrella. I carefully removed it thinking it might “wake up” but it stayed on the table unable to move. I had to run inside to get my camera. Feel free to grab this image if you have a use for it.
