Always a Work in Progress...

Studio Time April 2013
I decided to make some new 8"x8" tree paintings for the Queeny Art Fair in Ballwin, MO. It is this weekend and it is in my very own back yard. I don't know if I will finish these paintings in time, but I am trying. I just worked on a few and decided to take a break to write a blog entry. If not, I have no worries, because I have tons of new work to share. I just miss painting because I was on vacation and I have been so busy with other things, that painting was taking the back seat.

This week has been good so far. I have gotten to paint, I moved a new jeweler name Julie James into Wood Icing, I fit in attending a girl scout meeting and I am working with some other mom's on the 5th grade celebration for my daughter and the other 5th graders who are soon to go to Middle School. So next year, I will have a middle schooler and a high schooler. I find that this makes me really think about when they were babies and I miss those times, but I have to say, I am really enjoying them now. They are so smart and funny. I love to be around them and soak up their energy. They think I am a hippie flower child, which they think is uncool, but I take it as a compliment.

Tomorrow I work at Wood Icing for the day and it will be crazy but good. We are having Artsy People Club from 1-3, I am interviewing a possible new photographer, and I am moving in someone who makes amazingly re-purposed chairs using vintage fabric. Have to be honest, I usually come home from Wood Icing and have a beer. It is always a good day, but takes all of my energy, but in a good way. I always feel like I really accomplished a lot.

This Friday is the Queeny set up and I am very excited to see how it will go. Many of my artist friends will be there, so it will be like a little reunion and the best part is I get to sleep in my own bed at night! Come see me if you are local and want to see my new paintings!
