Blog Update

I have new tabs at the top labeled "about me" and "portfolio."  They are linked to actual pages.  Blogger has come a long way over the years.

I'll try my best from now on to keep my paintings categorized and organized into the portfolio page/slides because they are all over the place now! I have been on a cleaning/organizing spree like no other these past few continues now on the blog!

City Grocery Update 3

Do you remember City Grocery Update 2?  Probably not because it was over a YEAR AGO.  I kid you not.  What DID I do with this past year?

I am vowing not to stop or rather START anything until I am finished!  I worked on it a little today.  It doesn't look like I did much but I did.  The white columns may be the last thing I tackle since I plan to do it with the opaque white and hope to cover any imperfections!   It will come together in the end much like Dad's Square Books picture.

Hobby Lobby Birthday

I am SO very excited to paint this weekend and FINALLY finish one of my paintings (so I hope).  My upstairs has been 88 degrees...a HOT 88 degrees.  Currently it is 72.  We are in business thanks to a new AC coil!

My high school friend, Hayley, was in a wedding with me a couple weeks ago for another high school friend.  How well does she know me?  Well enough to gift me a Hobby Lobby gift card (very well)!

It had been entirely too long since I had been to Hobby Lobby.  I know this because they have rearranged and now carry a wide selection of LARGE canvases.  I need a larger house to store all my large paintings.  I love painting large canvases.  I left the store with a much needed disposable pallet and am going to get to replenish some of my paint which I desperately need.
