I was fortunate enough to take a few weeks off from painting this year. Didn’t do anything too exciting, just the usual visiting the family and baby-sitting my niece and nephew thing. I’ve never been one to treat children like children so I taught them the art of binge watching Netflix shows. We did nearly an entire season of “PeeWee’s Playhouse” in one sitting. It was a compromise because the kids refused to watch “Stranger Things” with me. They threatened me with tears. Then again, these are the same kids who were freaked out by Pan-Kun and James, the chimp and English bulldog team that went around Japan doing human tasks, so I had to table this highly anticipated show of the summer until they went home.

And boy, they don’t know what they’re missing! Even though I have many many sets to work on when I got back, I stole some time to paint the Stranger Things set…that is how obsessed I am with this show. Hey, once a fangirl, always a fangirl.

Stranger Things

There’s Hopper, Joyce, Jonathan, Mike, Lucas, Dustin, and of course, Eleven.
