Firelight by any other name....

The only saving grace of a horrible no good very bad day is that I finished a piece I've been working on called Firelight.
The actual piece is bigger than this but I just have a regular sized scanner.

What's in your top 5?

The brilliant Miss El tagged me for the Five Favorite things meme. So, considering where my head has been at lately (I've been letting my inner-13-year-old drive the brain) I thought I'd go with Top Five Favorite Cute Boys Who Sing.

David Cook - The squee-inducing winner of this year's American Idol.

Sondre Lerche - The Norwegian Justin Timberlake

Rufus Wainwright - Alt-folk showman

Drake Bell - Late 60's throwback

Morrissey - Okay, so he's not a 'boy' anymore but one never forgets one's first love.

Hmmm, now, who to tag....how about: Yumi Yumi, Lovely Lou, Moogan, Lovely Leslie and Cassandra.

Creature Comfort's Sw-elegant Ball

So, I've decided to go to Creature Comfort's online soiree.

Like any good guest, I'll be bringing my hostess these silver julep cups (darling)

I'll be channelling Holly Golightly in my Vera Wang dress and Gucci shoes. (fierce)

Don't be fooled by the rocks 'round my neck, ladies.

And no party would be complete without a bottle of the witch to finish things off.
A lovely time is sure to be had by all.

Bangarang Red Velvet Revolution cupcake anyone?

Bag of Demons

Bag of Demons
So, I heard this expression used on NPR to describe Hank Williams....Bag of Demons. It stuck with me. I began thinking about a person carrying around a bag of demons. Then I rewatched the movie Se7en for umpteenth time and began sketching that which would become Bag of Demons.
Let me know what you think.

Where is the love?

The total lack of work-love that I'm feeling right now is depressing the f*ck out of me. So, fine...now, I'm going cheer myself up. Friday the 13, I'm so over you.

Additional : Wah, Lorac doesn't make my favorite lipstick shade anymore (Winona) so now what's a girl to do? That was the most perfect shade of brown....and MAC freckle ain't cutting it. Suggestions?

I submitted a design to Threadless. edited: never mind. It tanked after less than 24 hours. suck.

And the hits just keep on coming... This is a piece inspired by the object of my affections of late. I wanted to do something masculine and 'rock' oriented. And thus - Within/Without.

It's how I remember it

Here's a peek at an almost finished piece, How I Remember It.

The strange part is, this painting started out as something completely different and then evolved about three times during the painting process. It's almost like it painted itself.
