I'm working on some new watercolor paintings and I love the way they are coming out. They are going to be a part of a submission into this juried art fair, of sorts. I've got a W.I.P. shot of one of the paintings on my Facebook page. I'm really curious about the whole endeavor as I've never done a show like this. I hear good things and bad about people selling their art in such circumstances and the way an artist fares depends on a lot of factors falling in to the right place. If it turns out well, I may sign up to do more of these shows. If not... at least I can say I tried.

So, the interlude is finished. I wanted to get it out of the way and get back to the main story-line. I've been a bit busy these last couple of weekends, such that my postings haven't come out on time. You can see, here, one of the reasons why. I wrote a little review of the X-Men: First Class movie that I saw on Sunday with my guy. Be warned, there are spoilers in it.
Afterwards, we went to check out Soul Daddy down by the South Street Seaport. We were fans of the show, America's Next Great Restaurant, but after reading such mixed reviews online, I was a little hesitant to check out the food. By far, that cornbread waffle was my favorite part of the meal and mostly because of that delicious butter they gave on the side. I had the pulled pork sandwich which was okay. The corn was really good, too. There was a little bit of business in there. It wasn't packed. One man put together my order and the woman who was supposed to ring me up, walked away so that I stood there and had to wait for the man to finish up my guy's order, take off his food gloves and then ring us up. Luckily, there was no one ordering after us, but that sure was weird of her to just walk off. What counts is the food was good (better than what I was expecting). I wouldn't eat there every day or even once a week, but once in a blue moon if I ever feel like taking that long Subway ride just to get there... It is so out of the way. It was hilarious to step out of the Subway and see the giant Chipotle sign, and then get to Soul Daddy, with it's tiny banners, tucked down a side street.
I finally took some pictures of my new cotton scarf I knit that I talked about in this previous post. I love it. It's so soft.
