An important aspect of routine actions is time. Usually most of the actions that are done as a daily routine are connected to time – either that they are being done on a special time of day or that they have to be accomplished in a certain amount of time.

Same pear, new medium. This time some old fashioned (dry) pastels. This pear still stands on my desk and I feel pretty sure, that I won’t eat it.
Some random facts about pears: did you know that pears contain Vit. B1, Vit. B2, Vit. B3, Vit. B5, Vit. B6, Vit. B9, Vit. C, Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium and Zinc?
Unfortunately they also contain sorbitol, which causes to those who are very sensitive to it abdominal pain and diarrhea.

Day two of the NaBloPoMo has arrived. Today’s card has the title “Ace of Chocolate”. Yes, it’s a delicious piece of almond-nougat wrapped um in some golden paper. No, actually I should have said that it was a delicious piece of chocolate, before I left it in front of my window where the hot sun melted it completely this afternoon 😦 .
What would you say, does chocolate qualify as food? Some people regard it as semi-luxury food, others try to avoid it completely because of health reasons. On the other side, there are some scientists claiming that dark chocolate is good for your vascular system and your heart. So maybe it isn’t that bad after all?

Another little ACEO. Colored Pencil on a pastel-ground primed card. Yes, I know that most serious people would just cut their paper/board to fit the card-size, whereas I like to take original playing cards and prime them with primer to get a nice support for drawing 8).
Since I neglected this little blog of mine so badly over the last weeks, I’ll try to do better this month. That’s why I decided to join NaBloPoMo this month. I’m going to paint or draw one little ACEO every evening. The main theme will be “food”. I hope to be able to keep this thing going till the end of this month. C U tomorrow!

Bastet (also spelled Ubasti, Bast or Pasht) was an ancient feline Egyptian goddess of war. She was highly revered, especially in the lower parts of Egypt. Originally she had been depicted as a lioness, but later generations turned her image into that of a domestic cat :).
This is my very first attempt at painting an artist card. With oil pastels it is a quite difficult thing to get details done while working on such a small size (2,5″ x 3,5″). Nevertheless I had much fun doing it.
