Such a horrible tragedy on the Gulf Coast! I don't know what to think except, God, please help all the people get through this! What I really cannot believe is all the looters! What is your problem people????? To take advantage of the misfortune of others, even if you are experiencing misfortune too, is unforgivable! All I can do is pray for the survivors. It's all just sooooo sad.

More Butterflies

So I'm enjoying the Butterfly series...perhaps getting a little carried away?....NO, not possible. I have been researching butterflies for different colors and patterns. There are many incredibly beautiful creatures in nature! So, below are the next four butterflies in the series. I plan on continuing with this series indefinately, I could go on forever. These four have a slightly different design, I only painted half or one wing. For the prints, I copy and flip the painting and create a whole butterfly. I know, it's a little lazy of me, but really it's the only way to get both sides exactly alike. Plus, I may mix and match different sides as well.

too long

It's been way too long since I've posted anything, so here goes. Again, I'm having trouble deciding what to write about. So I guess I'll just write about what's been happening. Life has been hectic lately, with getting the boys back in school, selling lots of prints, the same old housework crap, etc, etc.

My dad came up to visit this past weekend in his brand new mustang convertible! He let me drive it around all day Saturday, what a blast! I want one now! Yeah, right, like we could afford one!

Sunday at the flea market, my canopy was blown away by a huge dustdevil! The amazing thing about it was that nothing on my tables was moved! As I was trying to hold down the canopy(I was actually lifted off the ground!), I was looking at the prints and praying that they wouldn't get blown away. Well, as soon as the canopy blew away and landed on top of my neighbors canopy, I looked at the booth and realized that not a single thing was out of place! Not even my business cards moved! Pretty amazing I must say, considering that the canopy is a twisted mess! Thank God for that one. Wind can be nasty at outdoor markets and I've had many prints destroyed in the past, but for some reason I was spared this time. Strange day, I think I was in shock most of the afternoon and evening.

Today is my day off, yeah right, its more like my day to clean house, do laundry, etc. No "business" work today. Last week I started putting originals back up on Ebay, I plan to start listing more every week leading up to Christmas.

As for painting, still working on the butterfly blessing series. Only doing small paintings still. I'm not sure if I'll do larger ones, butterflies work well as small watercolors, in my opinion anyway. I won't paint any large ones for sure until I come up with a design I really like. Well, time to check the laundry, what an exciting life! :)
