A Better Photo

Here is a better picture of the still life, shown here below the ONLY OTHER STILL LIFE I'VE EVER PAINTED:



This morning I looked again at the photo put in the last post and bleghhh! It's about the smudgiest grossest thing I've ever posted. What is wrong with me? Perhaps I am not a fancy slick magazine photographer.

I hope everyone had and is having a very merry Christmas full of good cheer, good friends and, if it suites your fancy, a spot of egg nog. Me, I can't stand the stuff.

What!? You don't like egg nog? I've been having it with Southern Comfort.

That explains it! I've been drinking it the wrong way.

Oops that was me.

Actually, it's pretty good if you leave out the eggs. And the sugar and milk...

Rice nog? It's like they think they can just tack the word "nog" onto a beverage and it'll sell. Like "green."

Oh! "Green Nog!" Excuse me I think I have a fortune to make...

This looks VERY nice, Ben! I forgot to mention that in my last comment. Did it take long? love that sword

Ben Hatke said...

Oh hey thanks Anthony! It's hard to say how long it took because I was working on and off and with a south facing window in winter I could only really paint from about 2-3:30.

I'm working on another, quicker one now. I'll have a better idea of the time.

Ben Hatke said...

Thanks! Or... or are you a spambot? Now I'm feeling all nervous.

I am saving up for an iPhone 3G, then I am getting a piggy back sim so I can use it prepaid so I don't have to spend a fortune on getting out of verizon. When I went to the Apple Store it said $199 for 8GB, and that's the one I am planning on getting.
