So how's that holiday shopping going? You know original art makes a great holiday gift right?
Of course you did.
It checks off all the boxes - unique, original, special, handmade, something for everyone, supports a small business...

The "To-Do" list is huge this week. Making fresh paintings came off till next weekend. I will be posting some little oldies though. This one is a favorite - not my usual subject or style but the colors are pleasing and who doesn't love hydrangeas? As I recall one of my sons asked me to show him how I paint a portrait and without having anyone around to paint, I painted this little pitcher which was on my mantle. So it's got a sweet little memory attached to it.
Plus it looks kinda Thanksgiving-y.

Hello. This is my twirl girl. Remember that? Just twirling around for the fun of it. You got dizzy and laughed out loud. I don't know about you but I could use some more twirling for the fun of it in my life.
So anyhoo - I feel like blogging again - not just the popping in every now and then kind but making friends with my blog and the whole process of "blogging" again - It's alot, this posting paintings - all the steps it takes to get an image on the screen - not to mention the ACTUAL painting process!
It's also in a way relaxing and focuses me to the task at hand. I've been hanging out with my friend Leigh over at allcreativelike.com and some other rockin creatives- we're getting our money mojo on and through the process of the class, I've realized that I miss my blog.
Hello blog - giving it a whirl again...and maybe a twirl too, you know- for fun.

This is a little plein air I did a while back - haven't had a chance or made the time to get out there this year. A shame really, it has been such a beautiful fall.
