Its funny that every once in a while, like a bus lets out or a neon sign goes off, people ask me for help of the art kind. I have about 4 of those projects on the list at the moment. Wish me luck. I hope I can do everything and not disappoint. Will post as I get them done.
By the way...
My friend Ellen loved her portrait of Tootsie that I showed you in a previous post. I didn't want to charge her, we have been friends for over 30 years and she lost her dog! I am thrilled that she liked it, (she says she LOVES it!) and I was able to help her remember her beloved Tootsie. But, she not only took me out to lunch but gave me a card of thanks with a gift certificate to the art store. She knows that's my happy place! And it supports my habit. :) BONUS! (She's such a sweetie.)
While I was up north last week we got to spend a couple hours out on the beach while waiting for my son. I took a picture of a little girl on the beach, and couldn't wait to paint it. Here's what I came up with:
The rest of the "to-do" list holds a mural, a sign for a science room at school, and something for a silent auction for a friend battling leukemia at the moment. And on my own list, I really need to finish the picnic table in the back yard. Should be good weather this weekend.
Always a new challenge. Looks like I will be in paint clothes every waking minute for a while anyways (ok, maybe not at work!). Funny how things come down the pike...lifes challenges, and opportunity for growth.. stay tuned!
