a quiet cloak...a shimmering veil...fog moves into neighborhood...
I spent the day trying to pack up the Christmas materials to make room for the New 2011... I sold another gift certificate today to another Grandmother who after talking to me went out to buy her grand daughter her own easel for Christmas. YAHOO!!!! Art Saves Lives!! I have been thinking about another $5.00 gift for the Valentine presents and am very proud to announce my collaboration the "Three Kids and a Kitchen" cottage industry and sell my daughter Erin's new adventure to make and sell her delicious homemade caramels. We will meet on New Year's to finalize out collaboration lesson plans but I am thrilled to offer an affordable sweet gift for your sweet hearts. I also have some new surprises planned for small pieces but first I need to complete my last commission piece. Guess what I am literally going to paint a life size horse for a client in 2011. The wedding backdrops are coming in and I am back in high school once again creating backdrops for the drama club at my high school. I realize how lucky I am to be able to live my dream in my small studio!! I feel so grateful everyone who has come by and supported my dream.
The soft velvet fog is moving in tonight and I need to stay home...I worry about my eyesight and driving at night. I had wanted to attend an open house tonight but I think I had better be safe and stay home. I am including some of yesterdays photos...I was a little tired last night and took the night off. Now I did work in my home studio ...and fell asleep a little earlier than my usual bedtime. I hit Michaels and Hobby Lobby after work tonight to select some of after holiday sales. Saturday we get an additional 25% off the total sale at Michaels so I need to review what supplies I will need in the New Year. May we all be blessed in creating our Art in 2011...recognize that there is a need... collaborate ...and create a new solution that you have not tried before...what have you got to lose?
