Watching the stingrays and turtles...

We're getting some nice rain here today. The kind where you just want to lay in bed and listen to it.

Sam and I watched The Karate Kid on Friday night. He'd never seen it. Everytime he went to his karate class I'd say something about wax-on/wax-off and he never knew what I was talking about. He liked it. I don't know if I'd ever seen the whole thing.

So while Sam was at karate class on Saturday, I went to my studio. He hung out at his dad's for a while after class, too, so I could get some stuff done. I have four paintings in progress right now. I might have finished one. I'm not sure yet.

We hung out at my mom's for a while last night. Ketty came over with some chili verde that she'd made. It was really yummy. Kind of like a pork soup. She gave me the recipe so I might try it. I'll probably use chicken, though. Or just veggies, even. I love to make soup in the winter...

Last night I watched I Am Trying to Break Your Heart, a documentary about Wilco. It was interesting to see the creative process of making an album and then dealing with all the corporate/record company crap to get it out. Jeff Tweedy has a great voice.

So today we're going to watch the rain, clean the house, and maybe I'll attempt to get to the studio for a while.

Here's an interesting video that shows how they make up and then further enhance a model for a billboard photo. It's all fake! Imagine that...

When you figure out how to make the veggie chili verde, will you pass the recipe along to me?
