I'm back in the world of the employed. We might have Christmas this year after all. I was concerned about leaving the boy to go back to work but it looks like daycare will only be needed 3 days a week. So now the big concern is when do I paint? I'll have to see how it goes.

Miss Effie in the dress I made.

She was Twiggy for the Halloween dance. Something I could never pull off, dressing up as skinny.

I'm on a roll, listed 3 new paintings on etsy yesterday. My version of Christmas colors. And while I like red and green, isn't it nice to know you can get the same holiday feel with a different color palette? Yes, the answer is yes. I am correct. And I'm also full of myself. And I like to start sentences with the word and. These are painted on wood floor samples I acquired at the local reuse market. I have a few more, I hope to turn all the discarded samples into art.

And now for French baby.

Okay, he's just pretending to be French.

Spent all day yesterday sewing a dress. Placed 27 tech support calls to mother as I had no idea what I was doing. Now she knows what it's like when she calls me for help with her printer or scanner or pc or camera or phone or dvd player. I could go on.

Now I can get back to painting. Hopefully I'll get enough stuff done to participate in some holiday shows.

And now for a dirty dog.

...sort of. I got this far with the new painting in 2 days, not good considering the size.

I don't expect to finish anytime soon. Miss Effie needs a dress for the Halloween dance this Friday and I'm attempting to sew it myself. Yeah, I hope the lights are low for her sake.

My First Blog

Here it is, my first blog.
And to get things started, have a look at the first stages of my first holiday painting of the year.

Off to a good start, no?

And now for a bug.
