Only seven days left.

Yikes!  So many things I want to accomplish in the next seven days.  I've made my list and it's not really so bad.  The problem is that I don't feel like doing them.  The electric fireplace and the Christmas tree look so nice and my recliner is so comfortable... I'm so blessed.  

Okay, okay...  I'll get moving.  I'd love to start another painting but I'll resist; it's more important to dust in preparation for my expected guests.  I have to leave in an hour to retrieve my paintings from Little Straw Vineyard before they close for the season.  I appreciate the wonderful venue they provided for my art and look forward to having my paintings there another year. 

I realize that the painting I've included isn't much to look at, at this stage, but I need to let it dry a bit before proceeding.  So far I'm really enjoying my water soluble oils.  I can see that in the new year when I post to my blog I may have to have two pictures per blog... one I've just started and another that is just finished.  Hmmm.... sounds like a resolution.... that means I'll do it for at least a week ;) .

  1. Coming out nicely, Bonnie. I hear you about the resolution thing....hmmmm! I don't make them at New Year's for just that reason. It seems like my whole life is just making one big resolution all year long sometimes. :)

  2. looks like a wonderful painting! i love the colors! seeing it in this stage is still fun! looking forward to seeing the end result!

  3. Je vous souhaite tous mes voeux à l'occasion de cette nouvelle année qui arrive... qu'elle soit aussi créative pour vous...
