Papa's health was going up and down, up and down but today turned out to be a VERY good day, lots of improvement movement-wise and he is regaining his appetite, which he had completely lost since Tuesday, February 5 when he had minor stroke. I inherited my positive outlook on life from my dad. And when he got sick, I thought for a moment he had lost it, I almost did not recognize him. But tonite, he called me just to say bonjour and the shine had returned in his voice. His inner sunshine is back...And I am very happy about it.

I was able to manage half-days in my studio almost daily since his accident and whipped up a couple of very good sketches for new paintings. Was also able to finish a couple of in-progress pieces and a bunch of little things I have been putting aside from week to week. So, I should be able to list a new painting on eBay Friday and maybe more. I miss painting full day.

My YEAR OF THE RAT ART EVENT CONTEST IS STILL ON, simply postponed till February 21 2008. I will get back to you with details on how and where to post a picture of your rodent creation. I am sorry I had to delay but too many things happened at the same time and I can only split my personality in 5 different pieces, not more!

Ulysse and Vicki worked on new creations lately and we just mounted them on my studio wall. I just love them!

On a last note that will make you laugh: The title of my last post was "I love you big like this", also the title of a painting I had a picture of. Well, I got quite a few comments when I checked my email the morning after and I just could not believe them! One was from IYAMYOURMAN, another from BIGBOOBSAMTEUR.COM and a few more from writers I do not dare type the name here! Well, I guess that is what happens when you translate from French to English word for word... Oh la la !!!

Glad to hear your dad is better!

Just a note...there is a big eBay strike until after the 25th where many folks aren't buying or selling in protest of the higher final value fees and not being able to leave negative feedback for non paying bidders (or any bidders anymore). Might want to postpone the Year of the Rat event until after that date to get the best turnout and most bids!
