Summer Fun...

It has been while because SUMMER IS HERE!! Of course that means 3 kids home all day driving Mommy crazy and even less time for the fun things...like blogging. So far it has been hot hot hot!! We alternate between sitting outside in the sprinkler and being in the basement where it is colder than cold with the air on. We have become the neighborhood hangout and I routinely have not only my 3 kids but a bevy of friends and neighbors. The other day I counted 12 at my house. Can you say...ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!! Here is a pic from the fishing derby we did yesterday. Last year Austin won a trophy for the big fish and this year we didn't even catch one. Probably the heat...yeah...right...hehe...
But...I have been making art which is good. I just finished a couple of pieces to hang over the TV in the living room. Of course I should be listing them on Ebay like a good artist but we will see. I like to enjoy things a little while first.
And I finally got around to photographing so many of the more recent pieces that I have finished and hung up with out bothering. I am excited to get this stuff out there in the next few weeks. I feel like I have not been selling anything lately...oh...wait...that is because I have not. Hmmm...

My work has definitely taken on a different look lately which I am very excited about. I am struggling a little bit with some of the media I am using that is a little bit unfamiliar to me but each piece leads me to a better understanding of how to make things work. I am using tons of texture now with modeling past which is so much fun. I am also growing more comfortable using the canvas paper which is also a fun product.
I created this piece to fill a naked wall in my bathroom and so far have filled two custom orders for similar pieces from folks who have come over to visit. I can't imagine how busy I will be if I ever get it up on my Etsy store. I know...working on it, working on it...

But for now, I am off to make the traditional Father's Day breakfast of bisquits and gravy, eggs and smooches. Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there!!
