Back from holidays..

Ok, so after a week of relaxing, and pretty much sleeping for a week outside of home.. I am all rested up and ready to get back to painting! It actually began to feel strange not to be painting for an hour or 16 hrs at a time for the first time in a long time. And to take a full week off from it was pretty weird in the feeling, but good at the same time I guess.

Couple of shots from my trip..




Not much to say about it aside from that I spent time away from the sun although it was in Cyprus which was  so sunny it was unbelievable. Though I did escape without a sunburn, or a tan, but without the sun burn is the more important thing to mention.

Oh and on my last day while in the airport, I found this little gem..


Someone somewhere really must have been thinking about me when they made this! My favorite 2 drinks combined! If only they made it in a bottle format, it would have been perfect! Haven't had a chance to taste it yet as I am on route to UK for the week ( where I hope to find more! ) and spent the entire weekend with the family.

Actually upon getting home, I did start to paint something, but this time something for the little guy in the house. A wooden dolphin that we picked up for him in Cyprus..



He picked out the colors, and even tried the airbrush a bit, before handing it back to me to finish off. As you can see. .he is quite happy with.. Even went so far as to go to bed with it, whereby he snapped off the fins :) Still liking it though so there is a plus..

Expect to see a few other topics I worked on throughout the Sunday later this week as well, plus whatever I get accomplished while in UK in the hotel for painting as well. I don't expect much, but you never know!

  1. Lovely pictures and the JD and coke is a surprise. I didn't think they'd do that and I'm wondering if it was strong enough pre-mixed like that.

    The gift for the little guy is sweet. Nice to have you back!
