Did you know that 95% of all women are wearing the wrong bra size? Here’s a bra fitting guide for a little help if you’re one of the 95%. I was.

i heard it on NPR

The other morning I woke up to this story on NPR - Morning Edition. So, I had to go out and get the books and see what all the fuss is about. I'll let you know what I think.

I'm going to start painting again May 1. I've been finishing up some other projects and had to put painting on the back burner for a while.

Since playing around with acrylics and some mixed-media projects I have found at this moment that I really like just painting from a still life.

I've really been trying to simplify my life. From letting go boxes of stuff in my basement that have been sitting unopened for 9 years, same thing with old clothes that don't fit me any more (ahem!).

Mixed media requires so much stuff!

When I paint a still life all I need are my paints and a simple subject. It's very minimal and refreshing.

I'll have some more paintings soon!
