I have been working on some little paintings of lighthouses. I have paintings in the "Salish Sea Market" in Bowser, and they have been asking me for lighthouses. I love how the red and white buildings jump out. I am enjoying these little paintings.
Well, Time to pack up and get going back home. I really should be weeding my garden.
Oh, and check out my CindyMawle contemporary artist public page, I am putting up all my sketches and info on there regularily.

The other day while ordering my twice weekly latte, I stood there deciding what to have this time. Soy? Regular milk? Small or medium? vanilla shot? Half caf? Decaf? Regular caf? After making my decision I watched the barista create my choice and I asked her if most people have the same drink each time they come in. She said that most customers have their consistent orders. Hmmm…I thought.

It's who I am. I will have to think on that for a bit, and rather than attempt to be someone I am not, make it work for me.
