I went to Bread & Ink this morning for "art breakfast". I took the same route that I drove several weeks ago when a guy ran a stop sign and "totaled" my old (but amazingly dependable) Toyota Camry. It's driveable, but it is severely compromised and no one will even consider fixing it (because the cost to fix it exceeds the value of the car). Now I fight every other day with Allstate about how the car has more value than they want to assign it. This too shall pass (but in the meantime maybe it truly is time to turn it into an "art car"). On another note, I came across this vine charcoal self portrait I did awhile back (above). It's one of a few that I think actually does look something like me. I did some housekeeping today. I especially like using the front room mantel as a place to dry paintings. I cleared it all off today to make room for the "next round". All in all, I had a good day today (excepting Allstate)..and I hope you did too...what did you do today?
