Well I was busy yesterday hosting a dinner party for Maria’s friends from the class of 1999 West Anchorage High School! It was a delicious success, thank you Christina for cooking! I made my famous seed loafs and sat back and watched the ladies go crazy in the kitchen. So I guess what I am saying is I went to the archives for this picture because I was busy last night being fat and happy and I slept in this morning. After taking care of finances, I am finally ready for painting, however it is overcast and I am still sluggish from the feast so I figured I would post this unseen painting. Now I can get back to the studio to work on portraits for a while! I should mention to everybody to go to my show at Arctic Playgroundz! I forgot to tell people at my house last night, and I think my best work is there right now. Okay, I will talk about this painting. Last year Maria, her mother, and I all went out to Vern Halter’s Dream A Dream sled dog tours to see the puppies (quite cute) and then on to Talkeetna for a burger and beer at the West Rib Pub. After which we had a little beach fire at the Talkeetna river! Since I have not made it back to Talkeetna this year this is a good memory to remember as it was the most recent trip out there. Good times can definitely be had in Talkeetna!!!
