Writing and Painting

Thursday, Oct 01

The two seem to be intertwined for me, at least these days.

The big piece I call my Renaissance Showgirl is done, except for signing and spraying to protect the paint. She emerged while I was writing “Tate”, over a period of many days, a line here, a dab of paint there. That the two pieces–book and painting–are connected on some level seems pretty clear, although they aren’t alike in any way.

I will be posting the finished painting on my Twitter page today. I have also posted pictures of both my new books, so you’ll know what to look for. 🙂 (www.twitter.com/lindalaelmiller)

Now, as I compose “Garrett”, book 2 in the Texas McKettricks trilogy, two new paintings are in the works. It is an interesting phenom, to say the least.

Mean Girl is on vacation. I’m Eating Sensibily, aka the only thing that works for me. I’ve already lost 4 pounds, which tells me this weight is more about holding onto things mentally than what I eat or don’t eat.

This morning, I had Cheerios mixed with yogurt and a banana. Information you probably don’t need. Trust me, it could have been worse.


Make it good.
