The happenings around here

I decided to try one of my flowers on this gritty texture
not sure how I feel about it
 My latest tree
why always the tree?
I'm not sure if I like the blue
 Mr. PeJoe with a bone
This painting left yesterday for its new home
I'll miss it
I always miss them

Found this last night at the thrift for a buck ninety nine!
Can't wait to paint over this 20x20

I just received  a commission for a 30x30 +plus+ a 4 x 5 foot
I can't tell you how astatic I am!

As a child I knew I'd be a wife and a mother and work with special needs kids
Well I became a wife and a mother and gave birth to a special needs kid
Kind of funny...I think I may have known about Hannah before she was even born.
anyway...my point being

I never thought about what I would do with my adult life, other then be a mother and a wife
I never thought about being a teacher or a doctor
then all of a sudden, my kids were growing up and less dependent on me
and I dove head, hands and heart first into painting and creating 

It has taken me 10 years to get to where I am today as an artist
I had no expectations...I just followed what has become my passion

nothing happened over night
I'm so excited to be where I am

I love the blue! I also love your story and can really relate to it. I haven't been at it for 10 years, but have given up my battle "to do something with my life." When I turned 40, I decided to give in to art instead. Magically, my life is transforming and I am becoming who I was meant to be instead of who I thought I should be. I'm so happy about that. Your blog is very inspiring and encouraging. And I love your artwork! Congrats on the commissions. That is such a big deal!
