Rested and Ready to go

Yesterday was nice and relaxing, after getting the mats packed and shipped along with the other orders I had. Above is today's daily painting. The goal is to get back into painting one of these every day. I felt a little rusty today as it has been a few weeks since I painted a daily. It felt good to be back at it though. This painting is already up for sale in my Etsy shop. I'm running a Holiday Special on my daily paintings right now; $20 off the normal $50 price.
Tomorrow I will start a new large size painting. I have two 20 inch square canvases ready to go, still thinking about what I will paint. I know it will be a spiral abstract, just not sure of the colors or flower yet. Back in September while I was at the State Fair I took some great photos of different flowers in the flower section. The last red sunburst flower came from those photos.
It seems that every Holiday season I'm behind in everything I wanted to accomplish for the year. Then the Holiday season descends and I'm swamped with everything else I have to do! Maybe next year will be different, in any case, I think that will be my resolution for the New Year. Maybe I should call it a goal instead. Seems resolutions usually end up in failure!
Woke up to snow on the ground this morning. My guys even had a 2 hour delay day! Which is actually pretty funny because there was only a dusting of snow on the roads. Nothing like when we lived in Colorado and the snow had to be 4 feet deep before they would delay or close the schools! I guess the problem is, New Mexicans don't know how to drive in regular weather, so a little ice on the ground is cause for a major shut down. Of course by this time in the day, the sun is out and the snow is melted. It is still pretty cold out there.
I have a lot of new listings to put up today, so I'd better get busy!

Yay! Congrats on your Etsy sale! I was shocked to come home yesterday afternoon and see that I had some sales. It felt good. I was beginning to question my Ebay defection.

Now, to the good stuff...your new painting really POPS off the screen. Beautiful! Your work would also be fabulous painted on a really huge canvas!

Thanks Cynthia!

I'm starting the 20" canvas next. Just used my last prepared 8 x 10 canvas board, so I have to move on until I can get some more!

Plus, I need to paint more for the Gallery show coming up!
