So I went to the museum with my lovely friend J and we had a glorious time but once again I came home with way too many ideas-one was to create icons of older gals using wood instead of canvas. So I went to Lowes and asked the man to cut me some 5x 7 out of pine-which he could not do because it was too small-so I told him to do his best. Then I came home and had to attack one right away-I may sand it a little I may gold leaf it, I may add a layer of copper-but I do LIKE it......alot-there are so many places I can go from here. Love to get really excited and involved in new things...now, if I could only get my hands on a letterpress

I can't believe it has been as long as it has since I posted here. Well, summer is here and painting time has whittled down to almost nothing...ee..I miss it. After writing this I will try to squeeze some in, but the kids are playing that stoooopid W!! and the music is driving me bonkers.........Oh, to have a studio of ones own...ala Virginia Woolfe-of course she did walk into a lake never to return so maybe her room wasn;t so great after all......

I put on face book: is it a rut if you are happy there?? Interesting responses- most people taking it to mean I was really in a rut-but I was saying I am really happy in my rut: painting, working out, its spring smell the flowers rut. However it did get me a date to go to my friends farm and ride her horses and see her chickens and kitties and dogs (yes she is living my dream life) I am so looking forward to it and to seeing her again-once more picking up dropped threads of my life. I am starting to feel as if I were smarter at making friends in my youth than I thought I was cause they are all drifting back into my life and it is good! It is a surprising and wonderful thing

Grandma with her gold leaf halo......and me on her lap

I found the best paper-the old grocery bags!!Takes to char like a dream-I have so many ideas on what to do with this combo. I am mixed about the kids being home-can I still get things done-I may be able to do even more when I don't have to drive twice to school everyday. I have to find a better way to market myself over ebay and other sites, I think I will challenge myself to see just how much I can sell on ebay-even if it means painting to sell-just to see if it can really be exploted the way I think it can. I spent all day painting and putting stuff up on ebay and gold-leafing paintings for the ST Thomas show this fall-nice to have purpose!
