more painting, some new developments and stealing fruit

so! more progress on some paintings, who are making a long journey soon.

both need more work, the top one more so.

this photo is a sneak peak to a new project i'm working on- 
here's a hint- sign up for LifeCrowd.com now so you won't miss it!

and some fun-to-me things happening in my house; growing green onions, which i have a strong addiction to, in a mason jar..easy peasy- the tallest one went in probably a week ago and already 3" tall! magic! just put the white ends you cut off in about an inch of water, and change the water every few days. it seems to work faster than putting them in soil, which i have also done.

 cabin fever set in the other day and i went for a walk around my neighborhood, which has a large number of lemon trees, which all are laden right now, so ...free lemons! don't tell my neighbors (although to be fair, the little ones were from the ground * and then washed* and the big one was from a branch hanging over a fence into an alley, with about 30 other lemons that obviously weren't going to be eaten. No one makes that much lemonade...but they should.) they are about 23 times juicier than store-bought, and nice to know the ancient los angeles orchards that used to be here are still producing. and by "ancient" i mean the 1900's-1950s...if that..

there were also a lot of mostly barren avocado trees, which would be awesome if they were covered, because i love avocado more than any other food...maybe soon they will appear. i was tempted to grab a handful of kumquats from this tree that was overflowing with them near an alley, but a) i don't know what kumquats taste like and b) it was juuust a little too high/on the fence to casually grab some, unlike the lemons...
