I'm still whipping the cream on those strawberry cupcakes. Violet and Cadmium orange as well as Cadmium yellow light are becoming more important. My strokes are getting less picayune too. I like that but I still have to keep more control than I usually do.
More importantly, I finished most of my holiday cards last night. -- All are headed towards the the mail EXCEPT four. Just spent the morning trying to find the new addresses for my friends in Ziwa and Kalamazoo (hint, hint) and my nephew in Portland-- relocated when married (hint, hint). (I hate sleuthing these sites which suddenly want thirty nine bucks to tell me his address and if he's got a criminal record). Of course not, he's on Facebook,but I doubt I could find his address there--at least I hope not.
Lost a follower I noticed. Must have been something I said or I just simply bored them to death with these mice? I feel badly. With so few of you, each one of you is important. So let me know what's turning you on or off or what direction would be more interesting. I'm flexible and, as my year is coming to a close January 5th, I am thinking of changing the format.--Wish I could change the title too, (it's dull). I'd like to broaden the scope. While drawing daily was important in the get-go, painting has become my main interest. And as you know, Mice isn't happening in a day.
In case you missed it on You Tube yesterday, give this well made video a look and listen. Here's some piano for you. This is talent with a capital T, a kid with panache, a kid with a future. (I really do admire his youth, slim fingers and bravado). Delightful.
