My new painting

This is a close look at the lady.

I've been designing new cards too.

Today I finished a mermaid reading 'Gift from the Sea'
and there's another new card too.
I'll post soon .... and hopefully get them on Etsy soon !

If I would ONLY stop painting and drawing for a day or two .... and start marketing !

Have a lovely Sunday !

This is a full view of the new painting

I love this mirror frame . It measures 15 inches wide by 35 inches long. The frame is painted in graduated shades from a soft green to a soft pink.

All day on Friday I tried to paint something 'special' for it . I was trying too hard. It turned out awful and is now in the closet. I was so mad , sad and frustrated.
And then................. I read the comments from yesterday's post. You like Baby Bella !!! SO ... I thought ......I will do another Baby Face!!!!!!

I appreciate EVERYONE"S comments so much !

and I always wonder how many hours another artist puts into a painting . This one took me ALL day and night Saturday AND Sunday. It's finally finished. I had fun though ! I DID stop to make 13 bean soup [ it's so good ]. and NO .......I did NOT eat a cupcake .

My husband just walked in and said " Is that Patty Cakes in the hallway ? " Now I don't know what to title this .
Patty Cakes or Baby Face Cupcakes ??????

working too hard

I've been in my studio since 10 a.m. , it's 12:30a.m. now
just me and Jerry , drawing pictures all day long.
To all you ladies who have kids that interrupt your painting day .... be grateful or you could end up like me . Not knowing how to stop [painting] and then taking pictures with a dummy at midnight .
But THIS was better than watching TV

Jerry is much older than I am .... no bags under HIS eyes !
we have the same fat cheeks
nice eyebrows

Comfortably Numb

I don't know who these two people are. They just came out of my paintbrush. They look bored , resigned to having to be ....somewhere. wherever they are.
