JANUARY IS OVER AND GONE!!
I've been busy this month...I ended up painting 30 new paintings this month, PLUS getting many of the children's book illustrations done!! I have to really step it up in February..I have exactly 39 days until our first show in Fairhope, Alabama!! It's a wonderful 3 day event, and I am so excited!! We have friends there that have loaned (gifted) us a condo on the beach for 5 days, and it will also be a mini-vacation for us!! We loved staying there when we did the Pensacola show, and are excited about staying there again!! We are SO BLESSED with such wonderful friends!! I thank the good Lord above every day for the people that he has put into our lives!!
The children's book is coming to a close. I will be happy to have it finished, and am so proud of how it is turning out. It has stretched my skills to their limit this year, and I think that it REALLY pushed me to do better...I had to depend a lot on DRAWING..and it was such good excercise for that side of my art. You all are going to LOVE IT!!!
I seemed to have gotten rid of a lot of negative crap and people in 2012..and am happy to be starting out the new year without the weight of certain people hanging around my neck. It's sad when a friendship ends, but it was dragging me down, and making it where I had to "dumb down" to sustain it, so, it is better off to put in the wind. I do not have time in my life for ignorance and pure stupidity in a relationship. Also, she was an artist who COPIES other people's work, and that drove me insane..so, I am glad that I am done with it!!
Also, on the negative front--Let's just get it ALL out in the open..I have gained FIVE POUNDS. After a 58 pound loss since May 2012. It ALWAYS happens in the winter...I fatten up like a hibernating bear..LOL..Luckily, it is ONLY 5 pounds, and LUCKILY I am going to get a grip on it before it gets out of hand...Whew..I am NOT throwing all that hard work away!!
So..that is my life so far in 2013...Long and boring...hahahah. Live Artfully!!
