I am so excited about this!! I was able to secure a spot on Etsy's Main Showcase today. Please check it out. I have been sketching out a new little series that i am really happy about. The first one in the series is called "with hope in her heart" and it is now available, along with a bunch of other paintings. There are 4 new ones that i just added today. Please check it out if you get a chance. Thanks so much!!!!!

I have been holed up in my room today painting...going in a bit of a different direction this time....feeling a bit more in fantasy type mood, and want my painting to reflect that. The sadness in my work is gone for the most part, but i am sure not for good....
Listening to music, painting, enjoying some white's a good day.

Cottage on the Beach

That's what i want. Just a small one...a clean cozy space. Somewhere i can paint with the sound of the ocean in the background, with the smell of the sea and the sand and everything beachy that i love. With an old beat up leather couch in a funky color against cool white walls and painted wooden floor. With a small kitchen that houses a turquoise vintage fridge with endless supply of cold water, apples, green grapes and coca cola for the hubby and diet wild cherry pepsi for me. A cd player streaming plain white T's and ingrid michaelson, and kelly clarkson. A bookshelf full of unread books just waiting to be read. Not too much to ask is it? *sigh* one day, one day.

Just a thought....

Okay so i tend to worry a lot and maybe complain a lot (so people say) and can be a bit of a pessimist (although i have gotten SO much better about that) sometimes. On one of my usual strolls through the blogs i wander on i read a post about someone who is taking a vow to stop complaining, nagging and being a glass half empty type of person in general. Sounded good to me. SO what do you all think? Can you forgo all of that? It's amazing, i have been a lot more aware of the things i say and do and even think and cannot believe how much of it is crap thinking. I dont want to be a pessimist. I dont want to complain about stuff all the time and i dont want to nag...I promise myself to be better about all of that. And to all of my smart aleck friends out there who feel they need to remind me if i DO complain, kindly keep it to your self because then you too would be guilty of nagging, lol....just a thought. Gimee some feedback, if you want, that wasnt nagging, lol....oh my gosh here we go, lol.

Hopefully i will get everything i need to do today DONE....I should get moving instead of sitting here at my computer but i need to fully wake up first, lol. I guess it wouldnt be the end of the world if i didnt get a pedicure today but i could use some new tootsie paint for the wedding-being that i messed up the polish from the last pedi the SAME DAY i got it. Last night was a frustrating one, could not for the life of me figure out how to make a banner for my Etsy shop (i am tech challenged) without distorting my i made a crappy one, not really what i wanted....I also like what Kelly Rae does to her art, she has a watermark so that people know its copyrighted...i can do that in Photoshop, but for some reason it is difficult to get my Photoshop pics online...told you i am technically challenged. Is it too much to ask to have a nice banner and a watermark over my pictures? i think not....i came up with a DIY solution for the watermark at least...i will try it out later today if there is time of to have some Kashi (honey almond flax somthing or other) and coffee........have a terrific day friends...........
