We are about to move.
We are trying to get our house ready to rent out,
trying to find a place to live in Rhode Island, and
having the kitchen and bathroom redone because the water line to the ice maker broke recently and ruined those rooms as well and flooding the basement.
On top of that I am getting to paint!Here's the adorable puppy I am working on this week for our neighbor. Hope to be finished by Wednesday, especially since I have 2 or 3 more house pictures to sketch and possibly draw. Can you see how much fun I am having at this? Can you believe people pay me for having this kind of fun?
Here's the house I finished a couple of weeks ago.
And here is Brandy, a portrait of a dear friend's daughter. I did this in late winter/early spring.
I started a Cookie of the Week segment but had to stop when our kitchen was off limits for the workers to rip out the floor. The oven was in the laundry room for over a week. Sometimes the best I can do for the Pres' lunch box treat is to tuck in some Nutter Butter cookies.
So instead of the cookie of the week I will show you what I am scrambling to do. From here on out I will be scrambling to find a house to live in, finish commissions, get packed up, and move where the Marine Corps sends us. I am already praying for a welcoming art community up in RI because getting to paint again has opened up a facet of me largely ignored since our little figlet came along almost 7 years ago. Now that I'm painting, I don't want to stop!
