I Fell In Love With A Sandwich

I fell head over heels in love with a 7.5″x 10″ oil on linen painting of a PB&J sandwich.

A few years ago I stumbled across Duane Keiser’s website: A Painting A Day. He paints the most ordinary and fantastic things like a cupcake, chocolate covered cherries, a lollipop. eggs, onion, lemon slices, and wax lips!

You can now buy a print of PB&J, and believe me I’ve thought about it. But one day, I want the real thing. Or a kitchen wall covered in his little gems. Or if I’m really lucky, this beauty.

For the record, he does paint more than food.

Pump Up The Gym Jams

I find the gym less than enjoyable. If I am going to be stuck on a glorified hamster wheel for 60 minutes I need some good music to keep me motivated.

If you Google “gym music” or “songs for running” nine out of ten playlists will include “Eye of the Tiger” and the theme from Rocky. L-A-M-E.
These are some of my favorite picks that will hopefully give you a boost to keep going.

Here is the iMix. Hope you enjoy!
