My Actual Paintings Are So Much Nicer Than the Photographs On My Website. (Or so I've been told.)

I know how long it's been. I used to post two or three times a week. I have no idea how I did that. I guess it was the novelty of a new blog page. Again, I apologize to those who almost have given up on me. I am still painting, but not as much.

Below is a picture of my latest painting. It's only the second time I've completed one this big (48 x 36 inches). You don't just sit in one place with this size, but need to move around the table (forget the easel - wouldn't support it) to reach the whole surface.

Hope you like it. Really don't know how I feel about it yet. Still tempted to add one of my little houses. You know I'm a little house freak. My photograph doesn't do it justice. I really am the worst photographer. It means you need to use your imagination a lot when studying my pictures. I know that often the first thing customers say when they receive their art is that the painting is so much nicer than on the website. Well, I knew that.

I called this one "Big Sky" and it's available on my site at Etsy. Yes, I'm back with them again, although I'm not sure why. Think it's the companionship. Lots of chatty people on forums at Etsy.

Ill health this year, and for a person who didn't get sick (not even a cold), it was a shock to me. I am apparently vulnerable just like everyone else. Had no experience with such low energy and did a lot of sleeping. I always thought that the first thing to go were the legs (and that's a whole other story). Anyway, I'm almost back to my old self again. Almost.

Found a new art site I'm exploring. Will let you know if it's a good fit for my work. We poor artists are always on the lookout for The One, like a young girl looking for that one really nice guy. A new  art site is always exciting, not forgetting Etsy. of course, always there, like an old standby-last-minute prom date. I've even started some new paintings - working on three at once right now. I've done this before, but wouldn't recommend it because it can become a bit frantic, but the mood hit me. Looked at the canvas and couldn't decide which of three ideas to go with, so I started all of them. Oh, and definitely saves on paint.

Talk soon. Waiting for the New Year when the world should  be a Better Place.

Be happy. If you're really stuck, there's a perfume for that.

Can't believe comments are working. Haven't received one in years.
