It's been a week since my last post...I try to post two or three times a week but just got too busy this week. I'm still kind of figuring out what works best for me on this venture.
Anyway it's been a busy week and weekend. I had a wonderful surprise early this week when my sister Candi decided to purchase my painting of galloping horses from my etsy shop. I feel very honored, and so glad that she will have it in her home. Thanks Candi! That certainly made my week! It should arrive Monday or Tuesday!
This weekend I worked on my wood baskets. I decided to paint a fall theme on one.
Our cat Luke is always helpful in the painting process (not!) The winter/Christmas themed baskets are also in progress.
I did finish the fall basket...maybe. Here are both sides of it.
Haven't varnished it yet...looking at it I'm thinking I might add a bird, maybe a squirrel or bunny? I'll think it over.
I'm full of ideas about things I want to make and paint, if I can find the time. It takes patience to wait until I am able to put the time and focus into developing an idea, which I'm sometimes frustrated about! I wish I could spend all my days creating and painting. That's just not my current reality, but I am as productive as I can be when I have the opportunity to be the artist I always am inside myself. The ideas will be there when I get to them.
In my next post I'll show you my other project from this weekend. Something a little different!
