Uh oh. I've found a new show to love. My friend kept recommending this show Glee to me, and I kept putting off watching it. Well, during a bout of insomnia I watched 4 episodes back to back and can say it's one of my new favourites! Love it. I'm watching it on ninjavideo (up to episode 7 now) and shamelessly singing along. At full volume.

Oh, and if you're in the Toronto area, one of my galleries has a Festival of Smalls show that's opening this weekend. The annual show features artworks under $250 by their many, many talented artists. If you're looking for a really unique and special Christmas gift, original art is a fantastic way to go. They do online sales as well during the show if you're not local. The gallery is Art Interiors, and you can find more details about the show here. I just sent them 8 small oil paintings for the show - here's one of them:The sailboats are a bit of a new thing for me, I'm playing around with them. This one's a teeny canvas at 6x12".
