Here's the latest painting I've finished. It's an 8" x 10" mixed media canvas using acrylics, tissue paper, Neocolor II crayons and Faber Castell big brush pitt pens.
As she was coming together, I realized that she was looking rather like.. Jennifer Lawrence. Do you think so? I think it's funny that the next movie comes out tomorrow—utter coincidence, I swear. I'm tempted to call this one "Katniss" but I'm not sure. What do you think? I also though it would be fun to show you where this canvas started.
Fortunately, I took random pictures along the way and I tucked a note into the back of the canvas once I realized I was having a hard time remembering what this originally looked like. Not surprising since I started it in February 2012. Seriously.
Take a look going from most recent to the beginning...
Sometimes it takes me a LOOONG time to finish a painting!
Happy Hunger Games!

Here it is. Best day of the year (kinda). DST ends and we get an extra hour. Super awesome. So what did you do with yours? Here's a glance at what Casa Luna did on this beautiful Sunday, November 3rd.
I made some red beans and rice. It was go-ooood. I forgot that we didn't have regular rice, but I did have sushi rice (don't ask me why - I've never made sushi). So technically we had red beans and sticky rice. Still go-ooood.
The kitties' day looked something like this. Floyd was outside most of the day, enjoying the sunshine. Can't blame him. He came to say hi, then headed towards the tree…
...where he got "that look" on his face.
I knew what was coming next.
Yep. Climbing the tree. He's gotten WAY farther up that that before. I saw him chase a squirrel up a tree the other day. Crazy kitty.
Gir was on the couch taking a bath between naps.
Malcom was napping in the super special kitty bed/box.
Kaylee was also napping (shocker) but she was in the front room on "her" couch.
She did get up though. Had to say hi and also see what was going on outside.
Dwight, with his extra hour, spent most of it outside cleaning up the leaves. It's a job and a half!
Then Kaylee spotted the tie on my hoodie and just had to play.
"Gr-RRR." She's vicious!
Caught up with Floyd again, still outside, this time taking a bath while sitting on the hot tub (remind me to tell you about the time he took a bath IN the hot tub).
And behind him, Dwight was finishing up the leaves…three hours later.
That man is dedicated. Hey, I helped some. Honest.
