I made chicken tacos the other day from scratch, which is in and of itself a big deal, but I had some leftovers today and I was like “Yeah, I can probably make a little taco out of this after I get off work, make myself a snack in between shifts,” but I actually had enough chicken for THREE TACOS and I ate all of them and I’m so full and really happy because I think this is a sign that I’m going to have a good weekend.

More practice with color and gouache. This one has been sitting on my desk for months, so I sort of finished it in a rush while I had the motivation and time. Because of this, there are a lot of things that need to be improved upon (perspective, paint application, color choice, etc.) but I’m still happy to finally get it finished.
I really like how the girl turned out.

Whoa!Hey!Is that…?Could it be…?Painted things?
