Wednesday Bacon.

Thanks everyone for all the well wishes for my migraine a few days ago and for the dentist yesterday.  All went well there. For those of you who may be worried about going to the dentist, it's probably safer than the doctors office. My dentist told me before that they know how to protect both staff and patients from things they learned during AIDs. It makes sense to me. I did ask if he and staff were able to finally receive a covid vaccination. He said, "Yes, I get the second one next week." He then proceed to tell me how inept Oregon is on vaccines. That our medical facility is averaging 4 injects an hour. Yes, I wrote 4. That my dentist and his partner paid to be trained in giving the vaccine and have offered to open a community vaccine center but they were told there are no vaccines. That Oregon gets less because our numbers in covid cases were lower than other states. So, of course any vaccines that come to Oregon go to the big cities. How pathetic is that? I still can't get over 4 an hour. At that rate Mr. M. and I won't get vaccinated until next year. 
OK off to something funner. The other night Mr. M. was watching the History channel, a show that was counting down the most loved foods and how they are made. One was chocolate covered bacon. Now, I am into salty and sweet as much as the next person, but this just doesn't sit right with me. In other words don't mess with my bacon. However, I made some for Mr. M. and it is his new treat experience. He loves it!!!!!!
Also I am still behind in 29 Faces because the sun was out yesterday afternoon and I wanted to be in the yard absorbing as much as I can. I got my tables set up in the greenhouse. I want to let all of you know that we get more rain than most and the wind is vicious. Mr. M, has my greenhouse screwed to the deck, tied off at the fence and reinforced on the inside. We are praying that the pacific ocean winds don't blow it down. LOL
Yeah even when the sun is out it is overcast here.
Greenhouse ready to go.
Like I said I am so far behind in art so 
here are a few older piece.
I think I created these for 29 Faces a few years ago.

 That's it for now. Wishing all of you a great day
Be Safe Out There And Wear A Mask
Honor and integrity in art, in life.


  1. OMG Nicole, bacon! 🤎 Never tried it with chocolate, though! 😏

    And those faces... Such a pretty lady, you can see the femininity! 👀

    Not surprised about the vaccine, it's quite hard to get it 🤷‍♂️

  2. ...I'm not a fan of going to the dentist, but at the office that I go to they do a great job.

  3. I've never had chocolate bacon either but I bet it's delicious! No feast for the eyes, though.

  4. 4 in one hour! Wow,, I hope you soon get your turn,, it’s really slow here too, I ve heard of chocolate covered bacon,, I’m a rare freak of nature that dislikes chocolate so I’ll take my bacon straight please lol,,,that is a very sultry beauty you’ve drawn!

  5. Chocolate bacon??? Well I eat peanut butter and mustard sandwiches so I'm not one to call weird. I got behind on my 29 faces also but am trying to catch up.

  6. Lovely faces, how great on the chocolate covered bacon, I am not ready for that. It think I will attend my dental appointment in early March.

  7. Great faces, glad all went well! Chocolate bacon is not my taste! Valerie

  8. I look forward to trying chocolate bacon! Love both the portraits!

  9. Chocolate covered bacon?! I'd try it.
    Glad you have the greenhouse bolted down, supported, and ready to go.
    Lovely, feminine faces. :)

  10. I would like some chocolate covered bacon, please! LOL! I'm glad the dentist went well and I'm happy you're feeling better! Your green house looks great! Your "older" faces are gorgeous! Big Hugs!

  11. Hm, I just heard an interesting article (Youtube, but in German only) about possible side effects of the vaccine. Not good. Especially for people under 40 (haaa, I´m far from that!).
    Still not fair to deliver only to the large cities.
    LOL, glad you couldn´t see my face when I discovered what that is, LOL
    Ewww. Maybe cause I´m no fan of chocolate in general.

    Wow, your fist sketch is absolutely stunning!
    Mask is ready, it´s really warm and sunny here, so .. a nice day, also to you! :-)

  12. Nicole,

    We don't eat much bacon but I wouldn't mind eating chocolate covered potato chips. I really need to try this since I have both in the house at the moment. We've had a lot of sunny blue skies this week with an abundance of warm weather. The rain moves back into the area in the wee hours tomorrow morning, though. Your two faces are beautiful. I love everything about your portraits! Right now I can only wish to be half as good as you. I need to buckle down to take this side of art more seriously. Have a funtastic day!

  13. Bom dia Nicole, nunca provei, fiquei curioso.

  14. Beautiful sketches Nicole!
    I had a dental checkup this week too. All went well thankfully. I really hope you both get your vaccines soon, 4 an hour is a disgrace!
    Alison xx

  15. Not tried chocolate covered bacon!

    All the best Jan

  16. If you want to feel better about your area take a look at the debacle that was the Memphis management :(

    I'd rather have my chocolate and bacon separately lol
