Where did the weekend go?


Original heart: 8 x 10 acrylic and mixed media on canvas board

As anyone with a concept of time could guess, I barely made a dent in my overly ambitious to do list, but one of my very wise friends reminded me that it will all still be there tomorrow (thanks FP!). And of course, it is!

I decided that I am not going to pull the carpet in my art room until I have 2-3 days in a row to spend making it right (so when will that be????). For one thing, I've been on a creative roll with my painting, so I don't want to wreck the space in which I paint and displace myself for any length of time. When I do this, I want to do it from start to finish in as short a time as possible...yes I can hear you all laughing (when will she learn??)

So for now, I will be happy that my winter clothes are packed away for another season, and thanks to my sister, who had a closet full of fabulous cast-offs, I have an entire new spring wardrobe --capris, dresses, shorts & sandals. (thanks Jesse)

And if all that wasn't enough, my niece Avery continues her amazing recovery. She's making laps several times a day on her unit, and she's eating solid food and gaining weight. She's still terribly thirsty and has to deal with a host of discomforts, but she scowls and voices her displeasure with great vigor!

Kerri - delighted to hear about Avery! Sounds like she is on the mend. Prayers will continue . . .
This new piece is just a wonderful as the previous ones...keep these pieces coming. You should do an art show to exhibt these beautiful works....I agree, they look as though they want to be touched!
Good Wishes....

"...she scowls and voices her displeasure with great vigor!" ....now that's a great sign that she's getting better!

This painting is calling me for some reason. It's so rich and textured and seems to be glowing from within.

Enjoy your new wardrobe. It was my pleasure. I only wish I was as organized and had my winter clothes put away and my spring/summer clothes ready to go. Oh well, I guess I will just have to go shopping.

Love the painting. I really like the reds/golds etc...

xoxo Love Jesse
