I have found it hard to fit in painting lately. In addition to my three kids and endless laundry piles that I am trying to conquer we also have a new puppy. She is a lot of fun, but it really feels like I've brought another newborn home. Well maybe not quite that intense, but still more work for me. But that's ok because she is a sweetie, my son just loves her (she was his birthday surprise) and I am very attatched to her already. Anyway, about painting. I find that if I don't make time for it I am not as happy a person as when I am fitting it in. So I have been thinking a lot lately about what to paint next which has been fun, I have some ideas that I am sketching out now. And I think I will return to a few paintings that I haven't finished and get them done. I tend to have a few projects going at once so that if I get stuck I have something else to work on without getting too frustrated about my problem one. Then I come back to it and see things I can change and hopefully make it work. Here are two that are close to being finished. It's my goal to finish them up by the end of February.
I'm a mom, wife, artist, writer, eater of chocolate, and lover of all things furry and fluffy, except for tarantulas. I am passionate about painting watercolor portraits and any other subject that looks shiny, or fluffy when sitting in the sun. I create something every single day, it keeps me sane and makes me happy. I've won some wonderful awards with my artwork, been priveleged to be included in some prestigious invitational, group, and solo exhibitions, I've taught workshops using my techniques in watercolor for beginner to advanced artists, and have been blesssed to be able to connect my artwork with collectors around the world. Thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog.
