It's been a long, hard week here at work. I've been coming in at 7am and leaving at 8pm, only to end up working into the night. Hopefully next week will be quieter. At least the writer I've been working with is cool, and we've been having fun despite the drudgery; working with good people makes all the difference.

I finished a new painting this week:

Walking to work in the cold has been rough in recent days, and at 7 in the morning the air is especially frigid. Thing is, it's still not even that cold out (this morning it was 23F). Hopefully I'll get acclimated to the single digit quickly when they come.
