Watch This Space!!! (please)
Countdown to the September Challenge:
30 Paintings in 30 Days!!!

I cannot tell a lie. I am a little apprehensive- yet excited.
Even my girl seems to be doubting me.
Or is she daring me?
Either way...just a few more days until it all begins.

Ladies In Waiting...

I've been a little busy with painting which is always a good thing.
I should slow down a bit and save my energy for September's 30
Paintings in 30 Days challenge. I always begin with so much gusto
and a few days in am either struck with a little creative block and/or
busy with the typical things in life that get in the way of painting, such as
working, cleaning house, running errands, cooking dinner, etc. etc...
How Dare the Necessities of Life Get in the Way of Painting! :)
However this year I am determined to begin strongly and end strongly.
So watch this space!
Here are 2 ladies waiting to be epoxied. 
I will try to get a picture once the process is done, but
the glare is often a problem.

It was a folk art kind of day.
The sun was shining. 
My rug was glowing.
Great tunes were on the stereo. 
Out of the corner of my eye I noticed 
one of the chairs staring at me as if 
wondering why it had not been chosen as 
a subject. Its other comrades had not
 only been painted, but some more than once! 
It has now joined the ranks.
Onto framing and adding epoxy resin.
