Daylight Savings Time

Whose idea was daylight savings time, anyway? That’s a rhetorical question; I realize I could Google the answer, but I’m saying Whose Idea Was This?

It is 4:44 p.m. and dusk. My studio is now cave-like after 3 p.m. We see so little of the sun here in Oregon, and this is just an inconvenient and antiquated pain in the ass. I’m not a farmer. I don’t have to get up early to work the crops. And if I did, farm machinery has headlights now, so this is really just unnecessary.

But I digress.

It’s Sunday, the day when I usually try to cram as much weekend into one day as possible. I finished a bunch of paintings, but you’ll have to wait until after Christmas to see most of them. I made chicken broth and white bean chili and cleaned out the refrigerator and did six loads of laundry.

I know, I know. The Glamour.

I just finished this portrait of two bengal cats; I think they are just lovely. If I had enough room, time, and patience, I might even have one.

Thanks to Lorraine Garland, for letting me paint them.

King Lear and Queen Mab

And now, back to my paints and because it’s Sunday, my pots as well. I am working on I think, the last 10 or 12 Christmas orders so wish me luck. (But remember – I also have gift certificates!)
