It's a painting frenzy...

So right at this moment, my kitchen is a total disaster...I've been in inspiration mode and painting like crazy while my house is getting messier and messier.  I need to put my husband and kids to work.  It's hard to trade the paintbrush for the vacuum when I get like this.  I know there are women out there that seem to be able to do it all and still have a clean house but I'm just not one of them.  Life is short and I wanna paint.  

In progress, I was inspired to journal all over the canvas

The next set of photos is the progression of a painting I made this weekend.  She really changed a lot along the way.  I'm still not sure if she's done yet, we'll see.  

Rain has been falling so every time I come back from walking my sweet Lucy I bundle her up like a baby to dry her off.
I'm so in love with my sweet pup.

Wishing you a Happy Week and inspiration to create!
