Breathing, Painting, Soaking it in...

The more I paint, the more I feel, the more I see, the more I know myself.  It's all I want to do.  It's become like food for me, I need it to live.  I'm so thankful for the community of friends in this space.  I know my co workers and non artsy friends probably get tired of me always saying, "Hey, you wanna see my new painting!"  I get so excited that I want to share.  
I hope you're taking time to create. Here's of few pics of a new painting in progress.
Love to you,

Hello and Happy Thursday!  Do you know what day it is today???
Well, I'll tell you.  It's the midnight premiere of the new Twilight movie!!!
I'll be there tonight with my baby girl.  Wishing now I wouldn't have stayed up so late painting this week, I'm gonna be a zombie tomorrow.  

Here's a close up of a painting I've been working on in the wee hours of the night. 
Sending love to you, maybe I'll see you at the movies. ;)

Can I get a do over...

Remember this painting just a couple posts back?  Well, I wasn't in love with her...Her face looked too long, her coloring was too harsh, and I knew she could be so much better so I went to work.

I started covering over her with gesso and presto chango,  she had a new face and background!

Now I'm satisfied, I just love her!
Delicate Wings

Here's another painting I just finished.  I've been dreaming a lot lately and this painting grew out 
of those feelings of wishing an hoping on a star.  Both paintings are now in my SHOP!

Wish Keeper

And I started one more painting today before I had to start making dinner.  I kind of like the expression she has right now, not sure yet if I'll do anything else with her.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends who left comments on my last post, sending you all hugs!
Happy Week!

Painting, pottery, and my lucy...

It's Friday!!! No school for the kiddos today and no work for me!  Well, some work...I can't ignore the dust and dishes forever and it does feel good to have a clean house.  I'm trying to clean, paint, play with my babes today, and share some art with you!
Last weekend I had the opportunity to spend a Saturday at the studio of an amazing local potter, Craig Martell.  Craig is a master and makes it look so easy.  He is have a studio sale soon!  Those of you in the Salem area might be interested.  

some of craig's work

After watching Craig it was my turn to try!  Queue the ghost soundtrack here. :)
It was so fun, I could have played for hours.

I've been working on another Marie Antoinette painting too, I think I might do a series of them.

Here's a few pics of a painting in progress.  I love painting!  I never know how a piece might turn out.

My little Lucy was missing me on Saturday so I got a special treat for her.  Vanilla ice cream is her favorite!
Sending wishes to you for a Happy Weekend!  Thank you for your friendship here in this little space, it means a lot to me. :)
