Homemade Kiwi Jam!

I just have to share! I made gold kiwi jam today. As Birdie is a great jar-er of foods, like pickles and beets, and I'm sure jams and jellies too. Oh and, it's really quite tasty stuff.

4 backgrounds Left to Paint!

A long time ago I took a break from painting backgrounds since I basically felt like my entire life was painting backgrounds. I've got 4 bgs left to finish up now. I think that using Corel Painter really slowed me down... It's such a laggy program! But I love the brushes and so dealt with the extreme lag. (There are a few awful things about the layers window in Painter as well that make organising files tough.) Here is a screen capture of the 4 leftover bgs in Bridge:
Seeing the 4 of them at once is motivational. I like being able to see the big picture when I can, it helps.
