E Komo Mai! Welcome to my blog.

I'm delighted that you dropped in! E Komo Mai: WELCOME! This blog is basically an online visual journal is modeled after a concept I learned of in psychology 101... waaaaaaay back in college. That concept was somewhere in the chapter on The Significance of Dreams, where it mentioned someone's theory on dreaming about a house usually means that the house represents you. So I have used my actual house (Mauna Lea Manor) to structure my blog. In different rooms you will find different aspects of my life; different interests I like to blog about. This is a way to bring a little organization into my life and thoughts for myself... (dreams are in The Bedroom, Family updates are in The Living room, etc.)
This also, I would imagine, make reading this blog more convenient for you as well. If you are a grandparent interested in seeing photos and hearing stories about my boys, but maybe not so interested in my bellydancing obsession: you can just read what goes on in The Playground. But if you are an Art Collector more interested in my latest work and information on collecting, but not especially interested in my personal life: you'd enjoy The Office. Mauna Lea Manor is sort of the foyer to all the other rooms. If you would like to tour my online portfolio, please visit: www.stephaniebolton.com.
I hope you enjoy your time here ;) & continue to stop by!

Eating paint

I once read this art instructional book that instructed the reader to

"never eat your paint"

- I guess they figure when times get tough, some starving artists might go to desperate measures to nourish themselves?
...yeah, I thought that was pretty stupid at the time.

Well I just tried to open a particularly awnry watercolor paint tube, resorting to using my teeth to clench the cap and as the cap twisted off a whole glob of blue paint squirted right into my mouth- blauk!
Gross beyond measure! Now can see where the warning might come in handy!

Sometimes artists Do end up eating their paint... however unintentional the gesture might be.
