jane winslett-richardson

Jane Winslett-5

I recently re-watched The Life Aquatic and have been a bit obsessed with Cate Blanchett's character, Jane Winslett-Richardson. I'm always inspired by the idea of packing the bare minimum and going out on an adventurous trip. Richardson is a simple character, but has such a strong demeanor. She always carries around an old-fashioned tape recorder and microphone and wears safari-like clothing. I've probably included too many pictures in this post, but how can I not when the entire movie could be made into a book of beautiful still images?

happy valentine's day

vday tart pans

Happy belated Valentine's Day! I meant to post this yesterday, but ended up being in a cooking frenzy. I made Malachi and I a dinner of roasted chicken with veloute sauce, pea and potato mash, creamy carrots (which ended up being a favorite) and fried custard squares. No pictures since it was dark and we were too hungry to care, but it all turned out quite well. The second picture is of the wrapping on Malachi's gift. I should take pictures of the comic book I gave him because it is so sweet looking!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

desktop wallpaper

I sent this desktop wallpaper to the people who had signed up on my mailing list as a free gift a couple of weeks ago, but now I want to share it with my blog followers, too. If you like, here is a desktop wallpaper I made exclusively as a thank you to all of you who have supported my work this past year. It's a little late since it's for the month of February, but I hope you can still enjoy it as much as possible. It's not really very Small Adventure-y looking, but I wanted to reflect the month of February in a painting. There are links to the various sizes below. Thank you again for all your support and kind words over the past few months!
