"Open Up.......," 4" x 6", Golden Open Acrylics on Raymar panel, portrait of a wee Brittany Spaniel pup, $239 to the first taker. Inquiries (including how you may commission something extraordinary for yourself) may always come to me.
This little guy showed up at one of my son's football games this past fall. I loved watching him bounce around and trip over his own feet, then slowly get boneless as his energy wore out. He finally tucked his chin overtop his girl's arms and gave it up.
I'm sorta feeling that way, too. This week was shepherded in by a snowstorm that kept the entire family home for 2 days. I loved having them around, but the activity level was tiring, and I was already running on empty. :)
All are at work/school today, and the quiet house (or is it the purring kitten?) is lulling me to curl up and take a break.
But there's lots to do still - I'm taking another half dozen paintings to the Post Office, for one, and regaling The Princess (my now 10 year old daughter) with a special birthday lunch at her school. Then I have some paintings to deliver and a mess of computer work waiting for me.
And while my holiday commissions are all done, there remains some painting concepts and exhibition pieces that I need to spend time on.
And I've got the winter journalling sessions - both children and adult - to prepare lesson plans for.
But I just might find time to curl up with Mona on my lap and Finnigan warming my toes and have a cuppa something. Tis the season, after all!!
Thanks for looking at, and sharing, my artwork with your friends and family -
Happy holidays -
I am so excited to share with you the lessons I've created exclusively for this year's Make Create Express event. The first one features butterflies and will be part of the free Creative Retreat Weekend July 11-12th. The butterfly lesson will only be available, entirely for free, during this weekend event. However BOTH lessons, the butterfly and a wonderful rabbit painting workshop, are part of the year long Make Create Express. And I'm just one of 25 other artists who have made extraordinary content. Want in? Of course you do! We are less than 3 weeks out from the Creative Retreat Weekend , and to celebrate we are having a Blog Hop Giveaway. I get to give away 1 place in the Make Create Express year long workshop. This is a $120 value - think of the art supplies you can buy with that sort of savings!! To enter just share this particular blog post on Facebook and be sure to tell me that you have done so (shared this) by commenting here on the blog by 8pm on June 25th. I
