Still working on a painting I started for Takeshi for his birthday - this shit takes a while! Haha. Especially when it's for someone else. Also because I'm doing it in oil paint which does take a while to dry - and especially long, since the way I'm creating the imagery is to use thick layers of paint on top of each other. I want to create a very textural painting, so after each "layer" of paint I need to wait about 1.5-2 weeks for it to mostly dry so I can apply the next one on top. It's going good though. It's based off of one of Takeshi's dishes that he created....last year? Something like that. I'll show you the comparison photo when it's done. :)
On Valentine's Day I decided to bake cookies for the hub. :) They came out pretty good in my opinion, and I had a lot of fun making the icing from scratch for the first time! Takeshi had some food coloring, so I used the red and yellow. Takeshi unfortunately didn't get home until about 2:00am that night, since the restuarant was no doubt bursting at the seams with VDay customers all day long.
And now a random photo for you:
