I finished two mini-paintings featuring pumpkins:
|Set, Etsy Exclusive $45 (including shipping)|
|$30 (including shipping, Etsy exclusive)|
I have to tell you that these mini-paintings, some of them are the size of chocolate bars, and that's apparently all I can think about when I'm working on something this size!
Also, I'm in love with mini-stretched canvases, because they're just too darn cute. I want a basketful, just so I can play with them.
And I also started in on painting a mermaid I sketched out:
|This one being part of my intent to finish a small panel every day. And no, I didn't finish it yet.|
As well as the watercolor of the witch:

I don't know what I think of the watercolor yet. I started on the body and face because I figured if I screwed up that, I'd know it was a loss. Normally I'd start from the background, but there you have it. I think I want to give her a glowing effect, but I have a long way to go on it. (Her face is fuller than I figured on too, but perhaps it'll look less so after more of the painting is filled in.)
With the small panels, what I have realized is that perhaps my goal should be to finish a few every week (instead of every day) because 1) I don't have that many panels, and 2) I need to work on other things too. Also, life has a tendency to intrude. This week, I have had a child home every day from school sick. I also had to run to orthodontist appointments, and soccer practices (I coach too), and drama practices, and... *sigh*
Life is a balance, and I'm working on it. It's simply an issue of time. And needing to clone myself. A couple times over.
Anyone figured out how to do that yet?
