coffee, the second love of my life.

i think ive stumbled into a painting coma. it's all i think about, all i want to be doing. (well, almost.. i still like to kiss on the hub every now and again!)

the relationship between painting and myself has been somewhat love & hate the past few months years. currently, i love painting. and juding by how these pieces have turned out, i've say the painting gods are on my side the past week.

take a looksie for yourself:

as much as i love my starbucks, i'm afraid the above photo turned painting was taken at walnut coffee down by the beach. yum yum yum.. check them out if you're local & haven't been:

now here's some 'bucks love!

well, i'm off to nanny & stew about what to paint next. suggestions? happy thursday.

a thought worth pondering..

isn't man an amazing animal? he kills wildlife by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed. then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats them. this in turn kills man by the millions, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions... so then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals. meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily & so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "peace on earth".
