Went out with my parents this evening to the Dairy Queen in Pojoaque where we each ordered 2 types of mini Blizzard and shared them all. I thought the three best were the banana split, Georgia mud and Snickers. My parents really liked the Hawaiian one but I didn't love it quite the same. There was also a chocolate turtle one that mostly tasted...

Just saw the Veronica Mars movie. It was fantastic.

franie:

Does Kristen Bell keep her clothes on in it?

aristophanes:

Yes. There's a running thing about Veronica having a sex video online, but even in the moments of it that you see, she seems mostly clothed.

So I have, at last, figured out a way to paint skies which produces satisfactory results comparable to painting with watercolor on rice paper! It involves using the paint medium of Orazio Gentileschi, which does a great job thinning and blurring colors.

Still have not sold any oil paintings. There's one painting someone expressed interest in -- called "Crags" -- which I would repaint if someone...

The picture of La Sylphe is getting close to her deadline of destruction... if anyone wants to save her from being painted over, time is of the essence...

You can find her at http://taliafelix.ecrater.com as well as other unsold paintings.

Still making lots of art... part of what's getting me is I'm anting to experiment with the techniques. I'm copying two paintings -- Rubens's "Saturn Devouring His Son" and a portion of Van Eyck's "Arnolfini Marriage." I am nearly done with the Rubens, but the Van Eyck takes a long time.

I've been back in art selling mode. This is not good, it makes me unhappy and I start to despise art. I had been trying to paint just for the love of painting and for what I can learn from it, but, the trouble with that is you soon end up with more stuff than you can do anything with. Canvases do have the...

Almost done with a some paintings. Here's one that is nearly finished but got screwed up when I tried to varnish it, so it needs retouching:

So, I've been trying to go on my dad's recommendation of making cosmetic products, but it's not going very well. All the stuff that I could foresee would be problematic of course continues to be so (my parents, when trying to encourage me to do it, didn't seem to take my complaints and concerns that it was "hard to make" very...

I hope the job search works out for you!

Seems like you would be a stellar bartender.  Mildly acerbic and distant do well behind the bar in the right venue.
