I feel like the last 3 weeks have been none stop stuff and then throw in there trying to transition back into making art again! ahhhh
Below are a couple photos of what I'll be working on this week. I love lots of layers and here is the first layer. Just kinda doodled with some paint pens. I like to work all the time so 10 blocks is a good start to the week : ) even though I'm a day late, which is fine...I'll stay up late tonight : )
Ebay is going well : ) People are buying my paintings! I love that! Although letting my little block paintings go sometimes is hard. If I have spent the day holding that wood block, painting on it, my thoughts that I had that day become part of that block of wood. My mother in law said to keep at it and my friend Anke advised the same, so I will continue for a bit and see where it all goes : )
I had the pleasure of traveling to Paris for a week about 3 years ago and when I returned I painted this : ) In the full painting she is waving her flag in excitement from her travels : )

Have a good day and I'll try to photograph the next few layers : )

It IS hard to let go of something you've nurtured for some time! I'm glad things are going well for you in the market, though! Thanks for sharing the beginnings of a new stash...

hey lisa, i just won the bid for you three little flower blocks. I noticed in one of the pictures there were four - one with a turquoise background and red flower. Is that one still available? I did not see it listed.

I am so happy for you :) Of course you should keep it up...til the next thing...
Maybe I should try it, as much as this dog hates learning new tricks.

I LOVED the pics of your studio...
you have some really beautiful art there, especially the dark skinned woman...she is fabulous!

Can't wait to see the new art finished, you ARE an inspiration.
Mucho Love-O

Whoohooo!!! So glad the Ebay sales are picking up for you. You'll see, soon I'll be able to say, "Yep, I knew her when...". The blocks are beautiful and I love seeing the studio shots. Like little peeks into a playroom. And it is hard letting go but you are sharing a part of yourself and you are such a beautiful soul.
