I just finished the last two commissions I got before I shut them down in February. I can't thank Joy and Jen enough for waiting so long for their pieces.

"Muddle" 7 x 9 acrylic on wood plaque. For Joy who simply gave me the word, 'mojito', and said run with it.

"Wahnilla" 5 x 5 acrylic on wood plaque. For Jen who loves vanilla beans, vanilla orchids, the beach and a bit of morbidity.

And with that I am bidding you farewell for the time being. I hope to be back in a month, or two. A good friend of mine brought it to my attention that Winston Churchill called his depression the black dog. My black dog has been following me for the past month but never quite out of sight. Now after circling around my feet he has jumped back up into my lap. I need to clean my system out before I can try my last med so a relapse was inevitable, I just didn't think it would be quite so quick.
