May is proving to be a very successful month on many fronts.I weighed myself the other day, and I have lost 3 pounds. Husband asked me if I knew what that meant? My reply was that we’d been having lots of vegetables and salads recently. Nodding sagely he agreed but added “Not just more vegetables and salads but THAI style vegetables and salads!!” My answer to his claim is that if I always cook Thai food, then it won’t be special anymore. He isn’t buying my line of reasoning.
On the creative side, not that cooking isn’t creative, my painting class is going very well. Remember way back in January when I first started painting? I did a post titled Planning a painting, then reality intervened and I put off the painting of Laxshimi until my painting ability caught up with drawing skills.
It took me three weeks but I finished it! This is my largest painting to date.
Today in class, I decided to do something different. I chose a very limited palette of colors, mostly blues. I love this painting. I call it Girl with Attitude. She just may be my best thing to date.
