There are a lot of frustrations that come from having Celiac disease. Always checking to see if what I'm eating has gluten (wheat, barley, etc...) in it. Even eating out has its hazards because of cross contamination, I have gotten sick many times from not being cautious enough. I did this piece to have fun with some of those frustrations and here is the result.

New Illustration Friday submission. Topic "Entangled" 

When I was playing in the backyard with my daughter I tied Roxy (my dog) around a tree. I pointed out a squirrel to my daughter. We then watched it run around the branches of the tree. Roxy was also following the squirrel and she got tangled up. The entangled topic reminded me of this event and I decided it would be fun to exaggerate it.

Secret Admirer

When I first started dating Ashley I brought her flowers for helping me with a paper. She wasn't home but her mom answered and looked at me weird and said "are you sure you want to give these to her?" I hesitantly said yes. Later I talked to Ashley about it and she told me that whenever a boy gave her flowers she immediately dumped him.

I am grateful that she stuck with me, and I haven't bought her flowers since. j/k

Picky Whale

I had the idea for this painting for a long time now and just got around to executing it. This was so much fun to work on and I cant wait to hang it in my daughters room.

I spent another 2 hours tweaking this painting. I think this is the best plein air painting I have done. It was really fun to get back to oil paints, I hope to go out more especially in the winter (my favorite time of the year).
