artistic endeavors: shakespeare.

remember this day?
september 5.
that was when autumn started.
hence the scarf, the sweater, the skinny jeans and tennis shoes.
seeing as how i had never painted a shakespeare quote, this was the day to do it.

. . . and that's how it turned out.

so, for current news:
tuesday i woke up with a slight sore throat.
wednesday i woke up feeling better.
today i woke up feeling eh.
 today. yeah. lucky you guys. a preview of a custom canvas i just finished!
i've hardly taken any pictures, made food, much less painted more than a swirl, in the past week.
it is not fun feeling less than 100%.
we're going swing dancing tonight: martha, anna, me, and we're meeting up with a few friends there --annie, heather, derek, and who knows who else.
it should be fun . . . i'm hoping the social situation brings me my second wind, because honestly, with this windy, cold, utterly overcast day, i'm not feeling that energetic.
well, now. she & him are always good. peppy, cute music when the day isn't making sense in the fog of blahness.
and . . . unfortunately, i haven't been able to find the vhs of anne of green gables.
who knows where in this house it is . . . dangit.
i really want to watch that. really. really.
we need to remedy that.
maybe the library has it? ;)

I love the painting Beka! Yes. You really need to get a hold of a copy of Anne and Gilbert. Tomorrow afternoon I'm having my marathon =D Also, have you heard of this guy, Matt Dusk??? If you haven't, you gotta look into his music. Buble has got some competition coming his way ;)

Love your painting as usual, and I LOVE Anne of Green Gables! I used to watch it on the weekend at my Grammy's house when I was a little girl <3
