happy easter

Well I hope you all have a great Easter .  We are having family
over, about 8 of us.  Having turkey, and all the works.  So I am
looking forward to Sunday.  Made the desserts today, and they
all turned out a big plus, because I am not a big baker, but I
like to eat them.

I have been working on about 3 canvases in the studio, and doing
them a little different than my style.  I will be showing them off
here in a few days.  

So don't eat to much and have a great day

No attitude adjustment needed

Hi, how has everyone been?  Its been a great week so far.  The weather is great and I can see spring on the horizon.  I have been shopping and bought some new spring clothes. No drama involved
the buying of the clothes they all fit.  Its a big birthday coming up on Saturday, and my two closest friends went all out on me.  I got
a homemade birthday cake, so delicious its melts in your mouth.  Sorry WW but I have to eat it.  I went out for lunch and a Movie with my friend, and had a great time.  We got new windows installed , and they make a huge difference in our house.  I think .  18 windows and some are huge, triple pane.

Today I am making a ww dinner called Lemon Chicken and asparagus, it looks delicious.  Friday I am going to pamper myself
and get a pedicure, and a manicure.  Saturday the hubster and family ,we are all going out for lunch, couldn't get everyone together for dinner, so lunch it is.

I have been down in the studio painting my little heart out, results on the blog soon.

quack quack are there

Hey, I know I said I would post more, but unfortunately, I don't
live the Kardashian lifestyle.  Mine is just plain old boring.  The
highlight of my day, is getting an idea to paint.

I have been busy making art prints out of my original drawings
and paintings.  They are turning out great 5x7, which I thought
was a good size.   I am also turning some of them into Birthday
Cards, etc.  

We have had workmen here installing all new windows in our house.  So its been ski coat weather inside.  Because people its
still winter here, a lot of snow of the ground, and cold temps.
But should be done by Thursday, we have a lot of windows in this house.

My niece has twin  boys, about 3 months old, and I have been helping out.  You forget about how to care for a baby, after
30 years, but it comes back as soon as they cry. (lol) .

Okay got to go, hope you have a great weekend, and talk to you soon, I promise.

A little of this and that

Well how are you all doing?  I have been busy down in  the studio, creating a mess, but accomplishing a lot.  I have started a series of swim art.  This one is an old one I had done awhile ago.  I love swim art, I am trying to collect it all on my Pinterest page.

The new website still under construction, what I need is a techie angel, to come and finish it for me.  But since its just me, I am plodding along.

I received an email back from the lady who owns the stationary store that I would be put on her list to display my Art Cards in her store, so I am excited about that.  Now it just has to happen before I am to old to paint anymore.

If you read this blog you will know I hate exercise, but this girl got to do some.  So it is either swimming, or join an exercise club, where they have machines and stuff, eh I really don't want to do any.  But this engine isn't getting any younger.

I have a big birthday coming up, so I am trying to think of a big present the hubby needs to get for me. (lol)  Okay enough of this, so boring is my life I know. 

talk soon

cross your fingers and toes

Well its been a wild and crazy ride around here lately.  Creating your own website has many trials you have to go through, and lets just say I am experiencing them all.  I am no techie that's for sure.  But I have the website up and running but not all things are running correctly, one being the blog.  So I am still going to post here until all the bugs are gone.

Today I sent out a email to a small stationary company in my City.  They have an artist a month featured in there store.  So since I have just created a bunch of art cards, I thought they would be a perfect fit for her store.  Lets just say, I cannot just go out and pitch my art. I am not like that, I wish I was but I am not, even emailing her
was enough to get my heart pumping.  Its not rejection that I fear
because if your an artist you have to prepare yourself for rejection.  Art is very subjective.  Anyway cross your fingers, I am gonna need all the help I can get.

Studio Woes

Hello, how have you all been.  Been busy around here, just
doing daily life stuff.  You know the stuff you have to do, but
really would rather being doing something else.  Like I finally finished cleaning out all the cupboards, in the kitchen and taking
stuff to goodwill.  I could have got rid of a bunch more, but the
hubster, kept bugging me saying, do you really want to throw that out.  I will have to get rid of that stuff when he is out of the house.

I have been busy working on a bunch of sketches.  The way I work is I also sketch an idea, then use markers to show colors, (like the lady above) then when I want to do more I have sketched the idea.  
I am working on a couple of painting at the moment.  I try to work
on a bunch at one time, then when one is drying, I have something else to work on. 

Being trying to blog at least 3 times a week.  One problem being I live such a boring life, I don't have much to say.  Just me and the hubster are not that exciting. 

Bought a few storage things for the studio, I am always in the process of trying to organize the studio.  I make a mess while
painting, do you? I try to be clean but it seems the more I try the messier I am.  But after I have finished I always clean up,  because I can't function in a messy studio.  One other problem is I want to paint really big, but I can't, no room in the studio to do that.  I thought about using the garage, but that is only in spring, and summer and little bit of fall.  And if your garage is like mine, its full of garage stuff on the walls.

Ok enough these crappy problems, hopefully I will have more to
say in the next post, I am off to the paint store, to get some paint and to get out of the house.
