♥ In Houston you can find this:
(which is really quite amazing)
NASA Mission Control Centre, minus Ed Harris - This annoyed me slightly. I mean, where was he?! Don’t these people have work to do?

Mosaic tiles on a car? An absolute must-have work of art. Genius.
I loved seeing those True Blood type houses. They are pretty, extremely well looked after and quite mysterious. – But I think that’s probably because I didn’t see anyone outside: no children playing in the garden, no dogs, nothing. The weirdest thing! These residential areas are so cute and the weather was perfect. Oh well, I guess everyone was at Pappasito’s.
Now, Pappasito’s was definitely my favorite joint. The place was crammed and the food was your typical Tex-Mex trash: greasy, spicy and oh, so tasty! We also had the cutest waiter: when I told him I had flown in from Portugal he got all excited and said I was the first “Portugalian” he had ever met. Aw… (ouch!)
One word of advice: beware of all portion sizes in Texas. They are HUMONGOUS.

♥ Back in New York, in my studio, a.k.a. The Kitchen: a watercolor illustration experiment.
These experiments are fun and a good way for me to get more familiar and comfortable with watercolors. I find that the more I play with it, regardless of the end result, the more I like it.
That’s it for today, folks!
Coming up: Leaving the Lower East Side, Manhattan from bellow, The Ice Skating Seagull and tons of pictures! Stay tuned for more New York adventures.
