BRRRR....

Well...it is still cold here and I am getting pretty tired of it. Where is spring?? At least the recent snowfall melted which is a relief. All that slush was not fun to be out in with 3 little kids.
Of course you would think that all this cold would have driven me into my studio more frequently but it hasn't. The little "Gabzilla" has gone into 2 year old mode a little earlier than my boys did and getting anything finished with her around has become difficult to say the least. Not to mention that I am really trying to spend the time with her since she is my last baby and is growing up so fast. But...here are some photos I took of the lastest pictures that I painted. I love to work large but then I find that the photographing process is more difficult. This is a very long, skinny canvas that suited my sketch very well. This seems to be the direction my style is moving lately. I would love to figure out a way to combine the mixed media work I have loved for so long with this new funky "circus freak" style that is flowing out right now. So we will see where it goes. Other than that...nothing else new around here. School is going well for the boys. I was drafted to take Shakespeare the snake in for show and tell to Austin's class the other day which was a big hit. I was thankful that he remained calm and didn't bite anyone (the snake...not Austin). It is Sunday and all of my auctions on Ebay are ending today so I am off to see how that is going. Hope everyone has a good...and warmer...week!!

Hi Becci, thank you so much for your encouraging words about my post yesterday- I needed them! I haven't seen your work before, but I really like your folk art sort of style. I especially like this piece- I love tall, skinny, "stacked on top of each other" pieces. I also can relate to the circus theme- I've seen circus influences showing up in some of my work lately- I have no idea where it's coming from, but it's there nonetheless!
