New Goodies In The Store

This lil' guy is up for grabs in the store. I had a pile of walruses done and finally finally worked myself up to photograph and list them. Below you can see the next addition to the store--a nice, elegant pendant that will get listed sometime tomorrow more than likely. My dad just got back from a 2 1/2 week long trek through Thailand with his girlfriend who grew up there. I guess I got a bit inspired from it (and I didn't even go! I can only imagine how different and inspirational it would be to visit all those wonderful ancient palaces and temples strewn about over there...). Thus, I'm naming this piece "Bangkok Treasure".

I've had the past three days off from work and what have I been up to? Painting, painting, and uh, more painting. I haven't left the house once ('cept to grab some coffee). I'm in the home-stretch now for the snail/lollipop painting I've been working on--it'll be done by tonight and then I'll let it dry before varnishing. It's amazing how long it takes to finish such a small painting. I'm oh-so-happy with it though. And honestly, the whole thing came together rather smoothly. I love it when that happens!

I head back to work tomorrow, which means the end of my hermitism. Sigh. It felt so good too!

trek through Thailand - very cool. Time in Bangkok - not so much. I liked Myanmar better than Thailand, the language is prettier and the people seemed more sincere. Maybe because they're dirt poor. It's a lovely pendant!

Yes, he did say that Bangkok was quite the smog destination and he didn't care for it so much. I can't help it--whenever I hear "Bangkok" I imagine all those fab turn-of-the century adventurous and romantic (but American-made) films. Fantasized? Most definately. :)
