This is a recent landscape oil painting I did for my class. 
I have probably never worked this hard on a painting in the life. I'm just not a landscape kind of person. But I think it turned out alright. Except for that fact that the red cliffs look like a piece if meat. hahah.

Maize Maze!

So this past weekend my boyfriend and I made a trip to a local corn maze, out in the middle of no where. I had made sandwiches for our way their though. We had a lil car picnic, well thats at least what i like to call eating in the car. But anyway, they make the maze every October and its only $6 to do the it. I had actually gone to it last year, but it wasn't as good. I gone on the last weekend they were open and the corn had dried out and wasn't tall enough anymore to make the maze much of a challenge. But this year i knew i had to come earlier. The corn was definitely a lil green still and a lot taller. This made the maze a lot harder though, haha.

After being lost for a bit, we finally made it out! haha.
Along with the corn maze they gave to the chance to shot their corn cannon. :D
I sucked at it. So did Trey.

As we were leaving we saw this gas station called the Country Store. Well to say the least, i just had to go investigate. :]

So i'm kind of in love with this movie right now. The music, the colors, the french, the red and green (complementary colors just melt me away).
Has anyone ever read Stargirl? its a child like book (well more so preteenish) but its absolutely wonderful, one of my favorite books from when i was a kid. But Amelie kind of reminds me of Stargirl a lil bit. Maybe thats just me.
Well the movie is a major inspiration right now. Be prepared for a project coming up soon inspired by this movie. I don't know what yet, but it will be awesome. :]

So, I have all these potted plants and I didn't like them just sitting on my back deck. I took a day trip to Waterfront Mission Thrift store and found this old grade school desk for $5. The minute i looked at it i instantly thought "Plant holder!" So i bought it and with great difficulty got it home (it hardly hit in my car). I took off the wooden desk part and spray painting it black. And tada... a new plant holder!

What do you guys think?

Hu G. Whales!

Finally posting more recent work these past couple days. I did this one at some point in the summer. Kind of inspired by my boyfriend's band, Hu G. Whales. I was originally going to use this as a flyer for a show, but ran out of time. I might still make it into one, possibly for their EP release show. But either way, this was my first time using water color pencils! I really like how it turned out. The photo definitely did not do it justice. It's so much more vibrant and bright in person.

Let me know what you think!

First Drawing 2 project

This is the first project done outside of class. We had to draw a piece of clothing. So i chose a pair of cut off shorts. Problem is....I didn't exactly finish it. Don't know if i ever will, since i have so many other projects I'm working on right now.

Let me know what you think!

Yum Yums

I realize i keep posting about my cooking/food, but I just can't help it. I love cooking way too much.

This here is my attempt at a deconstructed stir fry/fried rice.
And i used a leek for my first time! For those of you who don't know what that is, it pretty much looks like a giant green onion, but has a much more delicate taste.

It's called a deconstructed stir fry because the only thing i cooked with the rice is the leeks (with some yummy sesame oil). Then you fry up an egg, and some garlic and ginger separately and put it together. Kind of a mix between French and Asian cooking.

What do you think?

Drawing Final

This is my drawing final. Taking a photograph of the drawing never does it justice.
It also needs some finishing work, but ran out of time before I had to turn it in.

Let me know what you think.

Spring Plants Part 2

These are the vegetables that are beautiful growing!

Green beans!
(from seed, and they're getting so big)
(Still little seedlings)
(from seeds as well)
(No flowers yet, but hopefully soon)
And eggplant!

Spring Plants

So this spring we planted a ton of vegetables, fruits, and flower, and hoped for the best to see if they would survive and possible produce some food. And they are doing so well!
I haven't been this excited about my plants in a long time. :]

(no ripe fruit yet, but very soon!)


Our giant tomato plants!

Everyday there is a new ripe tomato to munch on.

Anyone else having luck with their spring plantings?

Casserole Dish Cooking

So I've always looked cooking, but i keep finding myself using a casserole pan for lots of my dishes. I think i have developed an obsessed. I mean, how can you resist that warm baked goodness. mmm.
Here is just two resent ones...

Artichoke and Spinach Casserole.
(so cheesy!)

And of course, my favorite...

I think this picture was taken before I cooked it though.

Anyone have any really great recipes?

Dye Dress Dye

So i bought this blue swiss dot dress from Target (Rodarte for Target) hoping to wear to my friend's wedding. Well i ended up not even wearing it because I felt like I looked like a pixie, cause of the blonde hair/baby blue color combo.

To fix the problem (and not just throw away $30 in a dress I would never wear),
I decided to dye it black.
Cooking away...
Well it didn't turn out black, more
greenish, but still much better than it was before.

And here is how i wore it. No more pixie.
I definitely need to iron the dress though.
I just noticed that my kitty creeped in the picture. :]

Hello Helvetica

If you do not know yet, Helvetica is a typeface . To be precise, one of the most popular font types, used for everything from business logos and street signs. Although it may be strange to write about a font, a lot o people are obsessed with Helvetica. Or very opposed to it, since it has become such a commodity now. There is even a movie about it.

I also stumbled upon Helvetica Cookie Cutters.
