It's sold!

I haven't finished my big painting yet but it's already sold!  This will be the second piece bought by this collector.  I'm doing a happy dance.  Thanks for all the encouragement.  I appreciate you readers soooo much.

My VIP mention for today is Robert Genn.  He has an extremely popular news letter that I highly recommend.  Below is a quote from his last letter that I really agree with.

Wow, where did the time go?

I've been enjoying this summer so much I didn't notice the time was passing.  I've taken time to read some of my favourite blogs and I've been doing a lot of painting BUT two weeks!  The only thing that makes it so I don't feel too guilty is the fact that many of you have taken time to relax as well.  This beautiful warm weather is so inviting, I just want to be outside enjoying it.

My blog will probably suffer for another couple of weeks.  We don't live close to many of our relatives so when they can make it for a visit, we try to give them all of our time.  Three sets of them plan on visiting before the end of summer.  Could prove to be very busy and exciting.

My big picture is coming along very well.  I'm down to the fixing stage.  Unfortunately, with this style of picture, there's a lot.  I have a lot of areas where I have to bring the sky down and the leaves up.

On the floor of the living room.

My VIP mention for this post is Myra...drawn to paper .  I've mentioned Myra many times before because of her interesting blog posts and beautiful ballerina paintings.  I have to warn you though, her site is addicting.

Don't forget to enjoy the good weather.  'Til next time.

Yikes! Art Walk is just around the corner.

I was quite pleased with myself... I had enough new paintings to enter Art Walk without having to rush in August like I usually do.  Well,,, that was the plan.   One of those new paintings is my 6' by 4' picture of the boardwalk heading into the trees.  It's not done.  It should be... I scheduled my time well and it should have been complete by the first of the month.  BUT  I went camping for two weeks and have spent the rest of the time trying to get over the head injury I received at the art show on June 4th.  Two months and I'm still complaining and getting very little done. sigh....

There is one month left before the show... can I do it?  Oh, I hope so.  Prayer appreciated.

Here it sits.... waiting for me.   Soon...

VIP mention today is for my friend Valerie Roger's.  What an awesome artist.  Go look.
