I have discovered someone who is as big a fan of candy as I am.
Yes, it’s possible.
Dick Close, a graphic designer and illustrator from Cincinnati, had a booth at the Francisco’s Farm Arts Festival in Midway, Kentucky. The artist also enjoys watercolor, and his favorite subject matter is candy and popsicles.
I totally get that.
My favorite painting was of these three red gummy bears.
But I think you’ll find his entire portfolio is a sweet treat.
By the way, I did ask the artist if he eats the candy when he is finished painting. He said no.
He has talent and self-control that I will never know.

It was the 50th birthday party that didn’t happen.
Well, not as planned.
I flew to Cincinnati today to attend a surprise party for my best friend from college. Her family had gone all out, and she was totally in the dark.
Then the weather dumped its own surprise on us — ice and snow that made the roads too dangerous.
So we had to reschedule the party for Saturday and let her in on it.
A smaller group of us ended up at her next door neighbors house tonight for an impromptu dinner, which was loads of fun…so really, she is getting TWO parties.
