For the next 365 days I will take a picture of myself. Each day/picture will have a part of my body in it. I am looking forward to this challenge and being able to see myself and body in a new light. I am hoping for grow as an artist and a person.

I paint self-portraits because I am the person I know best. -Frida Kahlo

 This morning we went strawberry picking with Hayden's school!
(Blogger ate this original post during all of it's down time)


  1. Great shot of the strawberry. It looks like a cow udder.

  2. What fun! Where did you guys go?

  3. That is one cute strawberry! It reminds me of Pearl from Finding Nemo.

  4. ~Strawberry-infused sake~

    Total time: 10 minutes, plus 2 to 4 days infusing time

    Servings: 12

    Note: Adapted from Ponzu restaurant in San Francisco (via

    1 bottle (720 ml or 24 ounces) of regular (junmai) sake

    2 pints strawberries

    1. Pour the sake into a glass container. Wash the strawberries. Remove the stems and cut the berries in half lengthwise or quarters if large. Add the strawberries to the sake and stir. Seal the container.

    2. Let sit at room temperature for 2 to 4 days, tasting after the second day. Note: The fruit will lose its color, but that's OK.

    3. To serve, refrigerate until chilled, then strain out the berries. Best served well chilled but not on ice.
