Commission photo update, and stuff

Hey there!

I’m posting a couple of update photos of the commission I’m working on…

And I wanted to thank everyone who came to the yard sale. It was fun, and I got rid of a bunch of stuff. So that was good.

Still no one wanted those weird ceramic fairy sculptures I made in the 1990s.. big surprise (sarcastically) and a few other gems I was sure would fly out the door.

Saturday was very successful, but sunday I made 12 dollars and some sketchy guy tried to steal my purse while his girlfriend diverted me by trying to get free shoes out of me. So, in the future, I’ll just do saturdays. All in all it was good though.

And my arm is healing well, and I’m farming a lot (extra), and I’m nannying 2 awesome, sweet kids temporarily… not much work at the school, but hopefully soon.

That’s my story. So here are the pictures of that painting. I think it’ll be done by next weekend, when I get to go to my next yoga class and deliver it! Yay!!!!!!

Bless you!

commission progress

Hi Folks!

Here are a few photos of the painting I’m working on. Progress pictures are always fun.

It’s a commission, well sort of, it’s actually a trade, for yoga classes. They’re awesome classes! And the instructor is wonderful and helpful. And as I’m unable to do yoga right now, because of my arm., it’s on hold for a minute. But I miss it! And I’ll probably continue with one day a week after the trade is over. I LOVE it!

So I’ve been working on this painting, since I’m healing from those darned stitches and my arm is now smaller by an inch or so (ahhh!) I’ve been unable to do things. Thank goodness the hole is in my left arm and I’m right handed.

I’ll post more update photos soon. I’m making pretty good progress, but I’ve got a lot of painting to do still!

PS I’ll be ok really soon. I’m just not supposed to do things for a bit. Things I do for work. Like pick heavy things up and move my arm a lot. But it’s been a few days so I’m feeling better. I didn’t think it’d hurt as much as it did! I am feeling at least 50% better after only a few days, and I’m assuming it’s exponential. So I’ll feel just fine by next week, fingers crossed.
