Travel Log 11-12: My Current Obsessions

 Well everyone, I have been obsessively working on artwork lately. I even revamped my profile pic, even though most wouldn't notice the difference. I've been doing a trial on a new to me digital art program called Corel Painter. This thing rocks! Like seriously, all it needs is face paint and it's filling in for KISS...ahem, I digress, lol.
    Here's an example-
My profile pic before (done entirely in microsoft paint if you can believe it):

and here is the new revamped one (which includes the switch from my natural hair color to my current choice)

It took me about half the time to do the new one.
    Now I'm working on the artwork for our Christmas cards, which is awesome because  I have wanted to do that for years but never had the equipment.
    But other than artwork I have taken on my first turkey this past week (alright it was a turkey breast, but hey, never even tried that before!) and it was a pretty good run. The only hiccup was that I freaked out about the meat being pink and put it in for a half hour longer until I checked the USDA website and found out it's ok, lol. What's the holidays without a little fear of food poisoning?
     Doing trial runs on all the new recipes for thanksgiving and so far they have all worked. Going to try and roast a pork loin in my new electric roasting pan this weekend.And I should have pictures of rolls too as I am going to do another batch tonight! I'll also be posting a blog on meditation a little later. If I'm going to use this blog as an online diary of sorts then I need to start recording some of my spiritual experiences here as well, so bear with me =D.


  1. Get yourself a digital meat will take the guess work out of telling when the meat;turkey, etc is has saved me a lot of heartache. You are lucky to be able to digital art..i havent a clue LOL.

  2. Neither have I any clues of any digital artwork mastery :P You do it nicely!
