Olive and Friends 8" x 10"
Just in case you aren't on my email updates list (which I only send once a month if that) I much prefer posting here to the blog...mostly because I just don't want to bother you all with too many emails. Can you tell I feel like I get bothered with too many emails?! Honestly emails overwhelm me at times. Another reason that I love blogs so much, is that you can tune in when you're inspired to, on your own time. But then again, I often wish that artists that I buy from would send an email from time to time about their updates, because my time is getting less and less to visit the blogs that I enjoy following.
And I also released the remaining original paintings, including the one at the top of the post of Olive and her friends, that became the illustrations of my children's book. You can find them all in one gallery right here at my website.
Ok then ~ here's me wishing you a very happy holiday weekend. I actually feel inspired to do some straightening of my studio (does this mean that I might need to get a life?) and some surfing. Now that I've almost been in this house a year. Can you believe it already? I can actually see how some of my "systems" aren't really too efficient after all, and I want to get them in place to be ready for exciting things to come later this year!!!! :)
On a side note... I know that I never say anything political on my blog ~ as I'm not a fan of politics. In fact that's putting it mildly, I've hated politics my entire life, not to mention that I've never really watched a convention or fully listened to a political speech, as they mostly bore me to tears. But this time it's different. And whatever the outcome of this election, last night brought tears to my eyes. Obama rocked it! I feel so inspired to finally be inspired by a leader in our country. I have renewed HOPE.
