Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

30 Paintings in 30 Days...

A new challenge! Doing 30 paintings in 30 days sounded overwhelming at first. I had images of painting 30 canvases! But the main rule of the challenge is that "there are no rules"! So, an ATC counts as a painting. Hey, I'm doing that anyway. So, here are my paintings for day #1 and #2.

And other random swaps...

The Unicorn Inchies swap...
 and the God's Word Bible Verse swap.
 These two were individual swaps. One gal wanted a cow and another asked for a coyote.

Still sort of staying on the paleo diet. I'm adding in some bread just because I don't like the sloshy feeling in my stomach when just eating fruit, veggies and meat. :p I'm also going to look into finding some organic flour to make my own bread. I'm assuming organic flour isn't made from GMO seed? I have some learnin' to do! I would rather bake my own bread if it's healthier. A friend at the ATC site pointed out that modern seed is so hybridized that it has as much glucose as sugar. At least I think that's what she meant. You can find her comment on the previous post. I'm also allowing myself a dab of sugar and creamer so I can have the occasional cup of coffee. You need a hot drink in the winter, man! With tea I'll use honey. Anyway, I'm trying to do MOST of what the paleo diet says. I had a great omelette for breakfast with onion and spinach in it. Yum!
Oh! Almost forgot! Sully learned to roll over yesterday! :)

 Yup, this was the actual documentation of the first roll!

 The new Christmas pajamas...

You folks stay warm and dream big dreams for the new year! Shalom! :)


  1. What a smart little guy Sully is!! And cute!!

    Is that a bedbug in the first sketch? Just wondered.

    1. No. Judging from his schnozzola I'd say it's some kind of weevil. :)

  2. I'll leave the big dreams to you, Lisa. Right now at this stage in the week it's just about getting us all back to the various places that occupy us during the day! Maybe I'll dream a little at the weekend x

  3. VERY lovely photos of eating cows, foxes on babie's brest, friendly wolves, children in happy peace - - all in all: WONDERFUL!

  4. I love the pic of the owl -- pretty! I do think that any improvements you make to your diet, even if you don't follow a specific "regimen" exactly, is very good for you. Read up on different types and brands of flour, and buy the best one you can. That's the best you can do! But certainly making your own is better for you -- you can tell b/c homemade bread molds/spoils faster than store-bought, and that's because of the additional chemicals they put into it to preserve it. That alone is a step in the right direction. :)


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
