Good news this weekend: sales of my jewelry at Escapade were quite good last month, and I've already got a nice sales deposit in my PayPal account. Now, I just have to get off my butt and finish packing up stuff to get to Revelcon in time today.

I also need to complete my artshow application for Dragon*Con, and get in my dealer's table $'s for MediaWest. And decide about MidSouthCon as I got a "please please come back" email from the art show director.

Now, to only find the time...

Yesterday I threw together two "quick" lenses just to try to get a jump on some search topics. I actually saw people coming to my lens about my sweetie searching for information on "podiatry wall art and decor" - so what lens did I create? Podiatry Wall Art. Shameless commercialism? You betcha. Yet it's already been getting good traffic for a brand new lens. Perhaps I should do a whole niche on wall art for different professional offices...

I also started a lens in anticipation of the third season of MasterChef US. Yes, I got addicted to this series like crack last year. I seriously did contemplate applying for this time around - but then they had tryouts in DC and New York, and not in Philly or Baltimore which I both voted for when casting was asking for cities to host try outs. Oh well, maybe season 4? I need to work on my baking skills first anyway. But I figured now was a good time to get a season-specific lens started (and established) if the season will start airing this summer.

If you're planning a trip to Milan, Last Supper tickets should be a top priority in your travel preparations. Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece is one of the most recognizable works of art in the world, and obtaining access to view it in the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is tightly limited and controlled.

My article on visiting "The Last Supper" in Milan will provide you will what you need to know to plan a trip: historical details about Leonardo's work, how to obtain tickets in advance (and at th last minute) and resources to learn more about the painting before you go.

My latest finished painting - a reproduction of Titian's "Venus Anadyomene"

If you'd like to read about the techniques and see a step-by-step how-to on this painting, check out my article "Using Grisaille and Glazing Techniques to Reproduce an Old Master Painting." (Note: There is an adult content splash page in place because it's well, nude art. Don't get me started on that, but still...)
