All of my farm animals were re-homed in September except for 5 Muscovy Ducks which are free-loading! 2 out of the 5 are drakes, so that doesn't help AT. All.! We've had 0 fresh eggs for months and it's quite disappointing!
With that work load gone, I've had a lot more time to put into my art....which I'm pretty happy about. I took a weekend trip down to Donna Downey's Studio in Huntersville, NC last month and had such a great time learning under Junelle at Yes & Amen and I made some wonderful friendships. I'm in over my head with online classes and have vowed not to add more until I can get several completed. We'll see how long that lasts!
We took a 2 week trip to Texas in September to try and figure out where we want to buy our golden journey home......I think out of a state as massive as TX, having 2 areas is pretty dang good! It will either be the Hill Country around Kerrville or the Piney Woods around Nachodoches. I've been packing up the house and have made a lot of headway! This next year will whiz by!
I've added a lot more art for sale in my shop, and streamlined things to only include 5x7 cards. They are printed on quality watercolor stock and are nice enough to frame if you don't want to mail them to a friend. Each card is $3 and comes with an envelope with a teeny tiny image in the front corner, then it's tucked into a protective sleeve. They make nice teacher gifts or just a sweet way to say hello to a long distance friend.
I hope you'll check them out!
This is my latest finished this morning....yes, I'd much rather be at the beach!!!
This is a watercolor I found while cleaning out a few boxes in the basement. It just proved to me that I've had a love affair with watercolor for a very long time....but just haven't had the time to put into it until now.
These are all creations that come out of my head....I tuck away memories and dreams for another day.....please respect my copyright and do not copy....however, if they inspire you as many others have inspired me then tuck them away so you can take elements to add to your own designs.
