Remember Me???

I'm going to try to get back to blogging. I'm not sure how long this computer will  last, and I never know when it's going to go bonkers. This is what happens...


I just have to leave it alone and eventually it restarts and goes back to the desktop.

The two trees in the last post just sold so I'm happy about that. I also have another tree painting that I finished earlier this month. Here it is...


I don't have it at the salon yet although I took it over for the boutique.

I've been busy making art but nothing I can show right now...shh, Christmas is coming! Okay, I'm going to make this short. I hope you all haven't forgotten me since I've been away. I've been missing you and hope to be able to visit some blogs before my computer melts down again!

Where to Begin...

Where to begin...it's been almost a month since my last post and at the time I was completely frustrated with computers (and still am!) My desktop, which is not even two years old, has been in the shop twice and may still have to go back again. But I'm trying to stay calm about it and just keep moving forward.

Art has been consuming my every waking hour because I've been invited to participate in a boutique at the hair salon where my art hangs. The only problem is the boutique is Nov 17th and I just got the invite a week ago. My studio is a complete creative mess even though I've organized it a couple of times over the past few days.

This is my most recent painting...or paintings 
this is actually two 12" x 12" canvases...




I'm keeping them as a set. And I have ideas for several more.

I can't promise to post something every day or even to visit you all every day but I hope to begin easing back into it over the next few weeks. The boutique will be my main focus for now so if you have any advice about things like that or any suggestions I'd appreciate hearing them. This is the first time I've ever done anything like this.

Also I had a piece of good news...my son is coming to stay for the winter. He's usually not able to come two years in a row but somehow he worked it out. He will be here in early December. We're looking forward to that. And my art journaling class is doing great. More about that in another post.

I've missed you all and am anxious to get back to "normal" blogging.
