Is that a sponge brush in your pocket...

Since the personal renaissance I relayed in this stinkin' post right here, I've been drawing some. Today I've sold my first watercolor. Have a looky.

It's titled "Laverne".

While I like fantasy art, I am of the opinion that in most examples it's tacky. Oh God tacky. Yet, I'm prostituting my talent and I will draw what sells. Fairy art sells. Tackier mermaid art sells. Art with boobs in it sells. Do big flowery vaginas on canvas still sell? I'll paint some of those if they do.

This is why I'm giving my fairy art funny titles. Currently I'm selling a blue fairy named "Ethel". I just noticed the sitcom theme I have going on. That has to be Freudian.


It's the fifteenth. Everyone stand up and cheer because midmonth means it's time to present you with November's Bestest Housewifely Doodad! Ahhhh, feel the warm fuzzy housewifely-ness. I didn't mean you could touch me there, that's perverted.

I cannot survive the trauma that is doing a sinkful of dirty, greasy, post spaghetti sauce dishes without my...

"What's a Dobie?" you ask? It's a simple polyurethane sponge encased in a scrubby nubby plastic cover. Sized perfectly to fit in the palm of your hand, Dobie soaps up your dishes with the spongey goodness inside and powers off the sticky bits with the scrubby nubby outside. Isn't a good man spongey on the inside and nubby on the outside? Good men do dishes.

Dobie won't scratch your most precious dishes. Yes, that includes the margarine containers you use instead of real cereal bowls. For this reason it's also swell to use in your shower to shine up your hard water spotted faucets. You use the Dobie in the shower, not the margarine container...geez. I do not want to know what you do with margarine containers in the shower.

Dobie comes in single and twin style packaging. I like buying two at once. You never know when you are going to need an emergency Dobie.

Thank you Dobie, I like you, I really like you.


  1. I am truly in awe of your artistic talents!

    Absolutely beautiful.

  2. Nice painting...and it's kind of a sad reflection on getting older when we get excited about a 'Dobie' instead of a 'Doobie.'

    Oh well, tis the season.

  3. I'm not only a big fan of the dobie, i'm a big fan of anyone else who is a big fan of the dobie. Most people know what they are, but not the name. Thus, you have this idiot's seal of approval.

    Rock on,
    the idiot

    ps- i'm on my second attempt at getting past this guard dog you call word verification.

  4. What a great painting. I must admit I'm not so into the fairies and the like but that is beautiful.

    Thanks for the FYI on the Dobies. I always need one while in the bathroom and kitchen. lol

  5. I'm so excited about your paintings!! And excruciatingly awe struck at your talent. I love it, tacky subject or not. Whore away, Becky, whore away! :)

  6. hey... I forgot about the power of the Dobie. Thanks, I think I'll go get one!

    Y'know, if yer gonna whore out yer talents, don't shortchange your blogging skilz. You should at least get some freebies from the companies that make the products you endorse mid-month, I'm just saying.
