Work in Progress

as babe is not interested in letting me do MY thing this week, I have only started my next piece. And...it is very similar to last weeks because a lovely lady wanted to buy my Live a Colorful Life for her new montessori school opening. Well, I just couldn't sell it.  However, I decided to make a new, similar, painting and see if she would like to purchase it.  I struggle letting go of my paintings.  Every one holds emotions so dear, even though I am painting this with her school in mind.  Exciting though, to have one of my pieces, possibly, hanging in a school!!!

See...Babe had her own agenda for the evening!


and work in progress, taken with my phone.

And I am eagerly awaiting the new Somerset Memories.  Should be here today. I am featured in the Family Memories section, I think...  Can't remember.  But a dear bloggy friend saw it two days ago, and I still don't have mine!  Boo. Can your hear my tantrum?  Oh, that might be Paiger!  Hopefully a happy present from the mail lady today!!!

  7. Great! On several counts - the Somerset Magazine feature, the commissioned work, and having a child interested in following in mommy's footsteps in art. I also have trouble letting go any of my paintings. they almost feel like family. Faye
