A New Painting, A Good Day With Ben, and a New Cold.

Despite having spent a fun day with Ben watching the Daytona 500 the fact remains that I feel like crap. It seems the cold/flu-like whatever that kicked the kids' behinds finally reached me. I highly recommend Alka Seltzer's cold medication. So far it's been the only thing that has relieved the symptoms.

Yes, I am a redneck. I watched the entire race today as I usually do on this Sunday in February. And like the last 7 years Ben joined me in the effort. It warmed my achy body to see him smile and laugh all afternoon long at the sounds of engines and the sight of speeding cars via the television.

For the record, the above painting is brand new. It is on 16 x 20 inch canvas paper I think (I know it is standard frame size). E-mail me if you're interested. I'd love to write something clever and thoughtful tonight but I just feel like horse dung.

I love the colors you guys use - this is such a cool painting!
hope you feel better soon - I've had two stinkin colds in a row - it really bites. I swear by Airborne for kicking the cold-blues, but Alka Seltzer Cold is pretty good stuff too - don't forget the chicken soup!
