The sun wants to come out

While preparing for the summer and fall shows has been taking all my waking hours that aren't being taken by family members. I so often find articles about making time for art in your life, I need a book on how to allow other things in your life when art is an every day thing.
I am Hannah's mother, an artist and Mikes partner.
 I painted six paintings using the same colors, here are 3 of them.
Chunk, not understanding why he cant go out with the dogs.
 On one of trips to AZ to spend an art filled week with my friend Dawn, I picked up 2 sets of the 7 gypsies house shape sets. I love them, but have yet to find a way to make them stand.

Here are a few things I made during Earth day
 I took some paper bags, threw some paint on them and proceeded to make art with them

 This is my favorite so far.
The only Easter photo. Zack and our minister Dan Dale
They look so great!
Hope you had a good weekend.
I have creative energy coming out of my ears!
Have a great day!
