Craaaazy!

What a crazy time it’s been this past month and a half! The mural is long done, the dedication ceremony was last Wednesday. I have a few photos to share, which I am just now finally getting around to! The week after I finished the mural it was time to jump into our 1st annual “ChromaFEST” weekend, which happened the first weekend in May.

The same weekend, my youngest son found his first apartment and moved out. YAY! It took us a week to recover our house and rearrange furniture in the extra space he left us. Of course, he left a mess for us to clean up, but we were so excited about our nest finally being empty, that we didn’t mind cleaning up after him this one last time.

The preschool kids sang “Jesus Loves Me” for the mural dedication ceremony. It was so CUTE!

Now that the house is CLEAN and actually has stayed clean, it’s time for me to get busy in my studio again. I am itching to get back to my easel, it’s been WAY too long since I’ve painted.

Flowers given to me by the preschool kids, so sweet!

Now that I’m back to my regular schedule, I am getting back to my weekly auctions. After thinking about it for a while, I’ve decided to raise my starting bid to $20. Still a really great deal for an original painting! I have sold off most of my older paintings now, so from now on, the weekly auction will be a newer piece.

YAY Spring!

The past couple of days have been so amazing! Temps in the high 60s, sunshine! Finally coming out of that “last days of winter” funk! Being reminded of why I love living in central New Mexico. We have 4 seasons that pretty much stick to the days on the calendar. Winters are usually pretty mild and short with plenty of sunny, warm days thrown in. So, needless to say, I have spent the last couple of days outside as much as possible! Walking the dogs, hanging out in the back with the chickens, riding the bus/walking around town running errands. So, though it’s been fun, it’s time to get back in the studio and get some work done.

I found out on Monday that my bid was accepted for a mural project. The mural is for a church preschool and will be my first mural ever! I’m so excited, cannot wait to get started on it! Below is a rough sketch of the idea. The preschool is called “Lambs of Grace” and hence the lambs in the meadow. Work will begin on the mural as soon as it’s warm enough to paint outside, so hopefully very soon!

Weekly Art Auction is back!

It’s been a busy month and a several weeks since I’ve posted one of my weekly art auctions. To make up for the lag time between auctions, I’m listing a popular painting. With everyone who has shown love to this painting, I’m surprised I still have it. So as another big THANK YOU to my fans out there, I’m starting this sweetheart out at the regular $9.99 bid, quite the deal! 🙂 Happy bidding!
