didnt think it bothered me

to turn 42. I was born 1 minute after midnight on August 1st. I'll be 42 in about 12 minutes.

Today has been a roller coaster ride. Work was great. Getting ready to go out after work - wasn't great. Felt angry. Pissed off at TIME and AGING. Fuck you AGING. Screw you TIME. No matter what, you win. Then walking the dog, a cute young guy smiled at me and asked for directions. The perfect tonic for someone lost in the middle of middle-age. A few hours later and a few margaritas and a sushi dinner later... having a great time with my man... dessert at Madeline's...

oh shit.... its 12:01
happy birthday to me

Derby Girl - - in process


Derby Girl
in process.....

Inspired by the Ithaca Sufferjets and hoping to enter this in the local art competition
MOVEMENT which is raising $ for our local derby girls and food pantry.

Took the image from a screen shot of video I took of a Bout they had at Cass Park last year. Can you guess which Sufferjet's image I'm working off of? Maybe when the dark hair is done..... . . . ?

Done!

A few posts ago - I showed this when it was incomplete. It needed more contrast... both in lights and darks and in color. Here is the finished piece. When I added the first small orange areas... it clicked! I purposely kept the orange areas to a minimum in order to keep them special.
