aduki beans

Lin Yutang wrote in his wonderful book, 'The Importance of Living': "A man should order his life so he can find the greatest happiness in it."

I would easily be happy for several lives if I could just spend it painting.

annoyed armadillo

Since I've not had time to paint, here's a drawing from my daughter.

getting good at this

Most of the time I end up dissatisfied with the end result of an illustration or painting. The finished work does not live up to the vision I aimed for, however much I enjoyed the process.

Once in a blue moon I'm blessed with something I'm completely happy with. This is one of them. I love this painting.

no woman no cry

5" x 5", oil on canvas. $80.

I'm still very busy with all my freelance illustration work, but can't stop trucking down to the basement and oiling up a canvas for an hour. Pure painting is nothing but happy.
