    Its been awhile. But, last week I picked up the brushes again and am working on a piece. SLOWLY. I used to knock stuff out within a few hours but..no more. I get too tired and my hands cramp up.

    But..I am working on a smaller piece right now, that matches the one I am fixing to show you. This one was painted on a coffee table, octogon shape. I am pleased and proud to say I never expected it to wind up in Belarus. The woman paid more to have it shipped than for the table itself! Anyway..I have a hankering to do koi again and I have the perfect little half moon table I picked up at the beach and crammed in my van. It's been homeless along with me, and both of us survived that experience. So..I want to make it a koi table to match the one I did before. Not quite the same, but similar in concept. :)

    I love sausage but never made my own. I also can't eat it anymore. Too fatty.

    By itself, venison is way too lean. I usually have to add pork to it bring the fat content up.

    I do a small amount of writing (fiction), but other thsn that, the fruits of my hands are Destructive, not Constructive.... I shoot firearms competitively, I am actively involved in medieval combat recreation, and I take self-defense classes.
