Busy, Busy, BUSY!

I'm conducting a giveaway on my Facebook art page for a free custom ACEO painting, so if you're interested here is the entry:


a Rafflecopter giveaway


This weekend I'll be at the Chaffee Center Art in the Park event in Rutland, VT. I've done this event once years ago, but I haven't been back since. I've learned a bit about art fairs since then, but I still feel unprepared for this one. It's a two day event, so we'll see how it goes. I'm crossing my fingers that it'll go well! In the meantime, I'm painting minis as quickly as I can so I have stock for the event:








I've also been under a lot of stress with the MAYBE new house. We still haven't heard anything on our counter back to the owners. I'm starting to give up hope, and I'm feeling quite down about the whole thing. I've actually been struggling with the stress level and life things over all. I'm actually feeling pretty depressed right now. It's likely that this is just my brain finally cracking up with all the things going on all at once, and that once things calm down I'll be fine. But I just feel... sorta sad right now.

However, that doesn't mean I can close my door and get away with it:

He likes to grip the door and shake it too.
So, I'm out. I'm painting and matting prints, and talking to Tax Departments on the phone, and managing children's schedules, and working on house stuff, and...

*sigh*

At least painting is fun! I think I'm going to try another time-laps video of one of the minis today. I'm thinking a mouse in a Christmas stocking? Or something like that...

Keep up the painting Krya! What is it about this year? I've had the most stressful few months, I'm sure there's something 'up there' going on! Your mice paintings are adorable, I'm going to hop over to FB now and see your lovely giveaway. :)

Your minis are adorable - I can imagine the little mouse with his peppermint stick, would look precious as an ornament on a Christmas tree.
Sounds like life has dumped a lot on your plate lately, odd how it does that but it happens to the best of us - feast or famine, as they say. :) Perhaps once your show is over there will be a little less burden on your shoulders and you'll feel more relaxed. And I'm sure that when you hear something definite about the house (either positive or not) then you'll feel like you can go ahead and move on - it's that feeling of being in Limbo that can really get to a person ( I should know as I've been in that Limbo state far too many times). Meanwhile just take care of yourself and try not to worry. Things tend to have a way of working themselves out. :)
