I didn't expect to sell a Halloween painting in summer !
I made this by laying tissue on board , antiqued the background , then pen and ink and acrylic wash [ like water color ]

I went to a book sale and picked up this Maurice Sendak book .... for one dollar
I love this little book !
and also a cat pillow that I made .
I have to tell you that I suffer from 'overwhelm' . especially when I am cleaning . I'm like a crow > anything shiny distracts me . As I am cleaning I get ideas , I want to read this book , read a magazine article .....
I found things done there that I totally forgot about !
I am not done in the basement . I had a deadline of June 1 st. but I am cleaning over 25 years of stuff down there in the cellar . so I guess I was dreaming to try to make a deadline .
I lost my rhythm with creating and blogging . It feels weird .
but I'm glad that I am cleaning . I'm starting to feel better now
I have some stories to tell you ....
but I will wait for that
Please leave your name
