Also, completely unrelated:
I have pink hair now.
And I am moving to Arizona! So henceforth, everything that you see on this website is for sale. I’m driving 2000 miles in a little Honda Accord, and it would be silly to try to take all of this art I’ve accumulated over the years. So if you see something you like, shoot me an email [ chanonista (at!) gmail (dot?) com ] and we’ll talk. I’m just trying to get rid of it, so prices are very negotiable.

I just realized that I never posted the finished version of that painting, even though it’s been finished for an age and a half. Sorry? Here it is, regardless!

“It’s pretty cold, inside and out.”

“Sometimes you just gotta deal with entire days of laying in bed trembling and wishing for death before you can sit up and remember, ‘Hey. I know how to PAINT.'”

That’s right. Today, I busted out the Ani DiFranco and the oil paints, and suddenly it was like I was in high school all over again.
Pictures of the whole thing once when it’s done, but I’m pretty happy with how it’s turning out.
I really do forget sometimes that I can paint. I never think I can until I actually pick up the brush, and then it’s like I remember all at once, “Oh, that’s right, this was why I wanted to be an artist. Duh.”
