We are here! But I think we are developing heart failure! Sierra and Jaron are having a great meet! After tapering and shaving, yes, shaving (Jaron, too)! (You would have to understand the mental benefit it gives them! Jaron has made finals in every event so far (he got 4th in the 50 Back). He dropped his time significantly 35:23 from a 36:24! He hasn't broken 36:00 for 2 years! And Sierra dropped 2 seconds in her 100 Back today! Check out the Real Time Results
Prelims/Finals results all weekend! I've got some great photos too, stay tuned...probably up tomorrow or tonight!!

Is that not what we are all yearning for all the time?! We glimpse it at times, and it is so refreshing. This was created digitally...this is what I do in the 2 hours during swim practice! I am also working on another mixed media collage piece...Stay tuned!

We are finished! Parting is such sweet sorrow...I felt a need to resolve and part ways with my beautiful painted lady, and I am happy with her outcome! The details just don't come through as well as I would have liked, BUT she's magnificant, don't ya think? I bought some iridescent gold paint this weekend at Jerry's Artarama in Austin, so I gave her a sort of halo, and some golden eggs as well. Fun. I find if I just trust my own instincts, instead of trying to copy someone else's technique, I have much better results. Hmmm....did I learn something? This is giving me confidence and excitement about future projects; as I said before, smaller canvases. I have some vintage ephemera and some cool art stamps from PaperArtsy that I will be playing around with. Stay tuned...!
