Late Nights and Hot Blonds

This little painting is an interpretation of a friend's poem entitled, in part, "One Hot Tomato". It was supposed to be art nouveau, I guess.

I wonder if doing art right before bed is getting me keyed up. I keep laying awake thinking of creative stuff. For hours. Unfortunately, it's the kind of creative stuff that you think of around midnight. Like a mobile constructed out of old books painted primary colors, or like how to build a better wizard hat for my math class, or whether or not I have memorized the ingredients for my favorite cookie. What do you think of while lying awake at night?

I love the painting! (And, for that matter, oatmeal scotchies.)

I've been lying awake nights, too, which is very unusual for me. I think it's because I managed to completely reset my circadian rhythms by staying up all Sunday night, writing. I hate that. Even though I did go to bed Monday morning and sleep for... hmmmm... almost 8 hours, I guess, it's just not the same.

I assume that's a veggie, smoke-free, tobacco-less cigarette that man is smoking, no?

Instead of lying awake at night, I have been waking early in the morning, then lying in bed, half asleep. Mostly at that time, I'm half replaying whatever very strange dream I've just half-awakened from while trying to decide whether to get up or try to go back to sleep. Your lying awake at night sounds much more artistic and even productive.
