Chanel Red

I called this painting “Chanel Red” but my inner lip syncer really wants to call it “I Wear My Sunglasses At Night” (so I can…so I can….). I am Canadian after all!! Corey Hart practically raised us. Whether you’ve got this song stuck in your head now or you’re in love with the other subject, […]

Fancy Envelopes

This afternoon in sweet Ashland, Oregon, it’s pouring icy fog rain, dark by 3pm, wind howling around the house and I am recovering from part one of some dental work.
