Two Things & Serendipity

First thing: I went to a vegan bakery called Vegan Treats this weekend and got these amazingly delicious treats...




All of them are so delectable... from the Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse Bomb, to the Chocolate Encased Strawberry Shortcake... they're all amazing! Apparently, many restaurants in New York carry their desserts, but lucky me, I'm living 5 minutes from the source! 


Second thing: I'm painting again. This is my latest...



 It's an ink and watercolor painting that I've been working on. Sorry the photo looks so dark, but it's a gray day here today. I think that's why I added the warm lights in the windows and the smoke coming out of the chimney. I'm not sure if I'm done yet. I keep on tweaking it. I was inspired by Karla's painting from one of her posts this week. The idea of "home" is something I've been thinking a lot about lately. I think it's because I've been so house-bound lately. Anyway, I hope you like it. Obviously I'm still experimenting with watercolors and color-play. It's just so gratifying! I love the serendipity of watercolors... you often get a very different result than you first see when you're working. It shows up later, after the colors have dried. Things you thought weren't so nice turn out lovely.

Ha ha, yes, I was visiting Holly's blog this morning!

Thanks, Fenny! No, I haven't started selling my water colors. I'm not sure if I will or not... I'm still learning!
