I’d hoped to share a milk droplet photo today, but after several hours of complete failure set-backs I decided to take a break and post some vector art instead. Take that, foodstuffs. Have a great weekend, everyone!

I’m painfully slow, but this painting took f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Due to its scale I used a pin to paint quite a bit of the background (St. Basil’s Cathedral – a building I’ve always had a crush on).

Regulars might know I’ve been watching Notre Dame football since I was about 8 years old. Needless to say, Monday was a rough day for me (not the best ending to an incredible undefeated season).

Crimson is predicted to be a popular color again next fall… I can see why… but no matter what happens I’ll be sticking with gold.
Have a great weekend, everyone.

I was planning to share a photo today, but at the last minute I decided to re-process it. So, instead, here’s… another… nucleus (Nucleus No. Two here). Have a great weekend, everyone (I’m off to re-launch Photoshop).
