*Fingercrick* Righto! Let's see... The only real point where I think a major change could be made would be the background. The problem ...


Gold leaf
Some gold leaf I got whilst working in my job at a cardboard factory. Said leaf is (Or was) stamped on, glued then stamped onto an expensive box. (It has to be expensive to have actual gold stamped on it.)

You may wonder how I got my dirty little mitts on actual gold, but do realize that this stuff is thinner than tinfoil, in fact it's only a few hundred atoms thick, which you can sort of see in the picture, there's no width at all to the foil.

The foil cannot be touched, it tears, and it will float in air it's so thin and light. The total amount of foil seen in this image amounts to about a tenth of a gram of gold, just over $3 worth.

Box factories, more interesting than you'd think.
Sunset walk 3
The sun is hitting the river here, causing it to steam in the cool autumn air. Tonight will be frosty indeed.
Sunset walk 2
Second photo, showing said river. The houses on the far side are worth ten times those on this side.
A bit of gift art from :iconsk8eryena: of the somewhat obscure character Tabaqui (Toby for short!) from DQ Entertainment's Jungle Book. It's a cartoon series of the well known story with some interesting takes on characters. Notably it's far closer to the book than the Disney adaption.
That's the final grandparent laid to rest, so that will hopefully b a break in departures for another 20 years. This will take some time to work through (not emotionally, I was prepared for that, it was a long decline.) since she was that kind of unknown famous you get for doing a lot of stuff people don't see as that important. Specifically she did a lot of bible work, about 4'000 student's worth, so it seems more than a few people are going to miss her. There's also considerable legal mess.

Not that I'm on here much as it is, my employment has consumed all of my arting time. So it goes. Keep well everyone.
