Many Creative Projects on the Horizon

His and her orange bikes in New York City
I haven’t had much luck painting this week. To tell you the truth…I’m super distracted. I’m itching to try a few new things and finish up some old projects, so for the next 3 weeks I’m on a still life painting break. I will have some other fun creative projects to share with you!

While I’m on break, I’ll be putting past paintings up for auction on ebay. Here is a list of what is currently up now:

Since I can’t write a post without including a picture, the photo above is from our trip to New York City last year. I’m ready to go back any time!

Just in case you were watching "Dorothy" finally made it up on ebay last night.

This is "Drama Queen", which is how I feel when I paint these shoes. They are much more complicated than an apple, lime, flower or cup! I have actually had to do some preliminary sketches, but I'm happy with how they turned out.

Getting pretty close to 200 paintings...maybe I'll have a giveaway. :)

My friend, Gail, thought these shoes looked like Dorothy’s from the Wizard of OZ. I was thinking the same thing. Dorothy is finally dry and will be headed to ebay this evening.
