shadesong has a short story published, and it's pretty cool. (Her announcement is at shadesong.livejournal.com/3766662.html and includes a link to it).
She asked if anyone wanted to do art after reading it, and I've started painting. I've been enjoying the "in process" views of others' work, so here's two pictures. The first is pretty blurry, but there's not much I can do about that--right now my camera is my cell phone, so unless I send it to the computer AND look at it full size on the computer, I can't tell if it's a good photo or not, and I've added to it since, so I can't retake it as it was.
Hopefully, more progress tomorrow.
