|These make me want to get started painting my red queen with her dripping paint roses, because the roses are just perfect! I'm just not quite up to it right now.|
Still, the whole single mom thing is tough, even if it's only for a week. (Hats off to the real single mothers!) Interestingly, the amount of laundry and dishes and other things has been dramatically different. I can now say with authority that my husband is responsible for a lot of chaos in the house! Ha! He comes home today. Thank goodness! Even if it means quadruple the laundry!
I did manage to finish these little minis (and they're available exclusively through my Etsy Shop, in the Halloween section. If it's not there, it's sold. These little paintings are moving extremely quickly!)
|Just finished this one last night. 5x7" acrylic on canvas hard panel. I love playing with the breeze!|
|"Sisters" this one sold before I could even post it for sale.|
|Lil'House, 2x2" ultra-mini canvas, acrylic.|
|Ultra-mini with, cat, and three crows in the tree. I just LOVE these ultra-minis (they're 2x2", but actually stretched canvas!)|
|Witchy Stroll, again playing with the breeze. I just love the idea of blowing leaves. This one is 3x6" stretched canvas, acrylic.|
I have many more that I am working on, including a slew of ultra-minis. Some Halloween, but I'm actually getting hints that people want to see Christmas ones, so it looks like I may start doing those as well. I have a Harvest Festival booth next weekend that I need to stock, so I probably should make a lot more of both! Lots to do!
In addition to all of that, we're going to see another house tomorrow in addition to the one we already like. We may be putting an offer in as early as Monday, and I'm just this side of terrified. It's hard to think about uprooting our family from the house we have lived in for 13 years. Yet, the lure of actually having enough room (and instead of a tiny bedroom, a real STUDIO!!! Both houses have studios!) is so strong!
Maybe that's why this cold isn't moving on quickly?
Happy Friday everyone!
