Here’s this weeks IF illustration, done in my sketchbook with ink and watercolor and then scanned in. When I think of cake I think of cinamon crumb cake donuts, and all of my other favorite donuts. I love donuts. They are my medicine and my poison. I’ve also painted my favorite donut shop which can be seenĀ here.


I’m so happy to be well again! And I have four whole days to paint and play and hang out in the studio and mess around.

I’ve been listening to an amazing CD that Robin gave me…the soundtrack to the movie Everything is Illuminated which was also a wonderful book that I listened to while painting for about a month. Now I’m listenening to the music while painting. It’s sort of Klezmer with a jazz, hip hop punk twist with songs by lots of different Eastern European groups. I love it!
