My daughter, her roommate and cousin flew out to Austin Texas this weekend. A cheap direct flight and hotel was how they decided where they would go. One of my good buddies, Lydia (Understanding Blue) lives in the area so I asked where the girls should do while there. First stop was Lambert's restaurant for some good BBQ.
Then the girls had dessert.
This morning they will be going for a run around the lake. I'm sure they will be going down Lydia's list since Lambert's was a big hit.
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
