a good word is hard to find...


Oops!  Someone in my house is not going to be very happy with me.  It's not even 8am and today's NY Times has already fallen victim to the scissors (I'm told this makes it very difficult to read).  Although in my defense I have to say that most words are taken from titles so the articles are still readable.  It has become increasingly difficult to find good words to use in my paintings (no party or glamour girl wants to be caught wearing a glass half empty kind of word) so each day I scour the paper for little snippets of goodness, hope and inspiration.  

I'm almost ready for my show tonight although later I have to whip up blue cheese and toasted pecan spread (which i will put on crostini with a thin slice of pear).  If you haven't seen these or these yet you're in for a treat...have a great weekend!

Have a great time at your show tonight! The food sounds great... and there's always a little excitement in the air.
I am a big fan of Maira Kahlman... thanks for posting those links. Her work is so fun and refreshing. I'll convo you about those computer tricks! (and thanks:)
