I made it! I'm in Louisiana, with the fabulous Melinda! We stayed up half the night talking, so if my post today has bags under its eyes, I'm sure you'll understand and try not to stare, right?

I brought Atticus with me. He is the first in what I hope will be a long series of literary-themed bird paintings that I'll be working on when I get back to Arlington. It combines a lot of things that I love...birds, books, stacking things, cryptic references, I'm UBER excited about it. When I got the idea for the series, this was the first book I had to do - it's a lifelong favorite of both of ours, and I knew immediately when I started painting that it was for her.

Tonight, we're planning on dinner at the Olive Street Bistro with a group of Melinda's friends, including Lisa, who is my friend as well. We've not actually met, of course, but we've got a healthy correspondence to back up the claim that we're already friends.

I love the internets.

Oh - and Mark...


The eh-too-fay was DELICIOUS...
