A day of Preparation
Today was spent at home, catching up on my
housework and computer tasks. I had to take frequent breaks to lay down because I’ve been having some aches and pains this week. But I did manage to work on some more images for the cookbook I’m helping a friend prepare for publishing.
I found myself growing hungry as I edited the images of her wonderful prepared foods. She and I are hoping the book will be ready by Christmas for ordering.
I’m loving today. Today I’m painting mini abstract landscapes for an ATC (Artist Trading Card) swap event.
I’m a member of a Facebook Group called Artist Trading Card Addicts and several of us are creating our version of an abstract landscape. I’m using my acrylics to create mine. Painting a Landscape this small (2.5×3.5 inches) is quite a challenge and its a good thing its abstract, as fine details are very hard at this size. Also my OTT lamp is stored in the basement right now and I can’t get it out until tomorrow when my dh can do it. Being in this wheelchair is definitely a hassle sometimes.
Tomorrow I will post my version shown below to the Event page and hopefully someone will want to swap with me. That someone can be anywhere in the world.
A long weekend
Today, I’ve mostly rested from my long weekend. I traveled to my home town of White Hall, AR to man a booth at a local arts and craft show. There were three of us at our booth: my artist friends Gerry Delongchamp and Richard Davies. It was a slow day, with a limited crowd because of several conflicts in the neighborhood. However, I did enjoy catching up with what my friends were doing. I also was able to create a few ATCs (Artist Trading Cards) for the Holiday Event hosted by my favorite secret ATC Facebook Group (Artist Trading Card Addicts). I’m creating 9 cards to swap with a lady who lives in Athins, Greece. Each of these cards must have a holiday theme and be a standard sized ATC. Continue reading
A Day of Waiting
Today I was going to get so much done in the art arena, but now it is almost 8pm and did I get it done? Not at all.
I spent most of the day working on a problem with one of my customer websites and as happens a lot, waiting on someone else for information before I can fix the problem. Continue reading
