Hey! Happy Day Of Hope! What are you hoping for? Warmer temperatures? Better health? Flashier clothes? My wish for you is that you get your hopes up, and don’t get disappointed by them.

And yes, it’s Wednesday! That means that it’s time for the weekly photo contest. Today, I’m asking you to take a picture of something sexy. Sometime today, take a picture and upload it to social media (FacebookTwitter, and Instagram are all fine). Be sure to tag me in it, so I definitely see it, and #uncustomaryart. At the end of the day, I will pick my favorite, e-mail you for your snail mail address, and you’ll get a little envelope in the mail from me! It’s pretty simple. (And yes, it’s open to non-US people.) Last week’s winner was Suzie.
