Happy Thought No. 1

You know what makes me happy?  When I discover a few more french fries at the bottom of the bag when I thought I at the last one...

You Guys Rock!

I just wanted to give a big heartfelt THANK YOU! to all of my dear friends and customers who came to see me at the Stockley Gardens Fall Art Festival. YOU made my show the best show ever and I am truly grateful to you!
I am really pooped now so it's off to bed because I have to get up for my "other" life in the morning.  :o)
Multiple Hugs to all of  you and Thanks Again,
Denise (one tired Artist).

I Heart Ichabod

What little girl doesn't?  A bit much glare in the lower right corner - oops!  18 x 24

I didn't make it... :o(

I tried though.  Gave it my all even but two and a half paintings is all I could get done - three and a half really but one (which I haven't posted) was a 6 x 6 so I'm not sure it counts. As it stands I have three painted backgrounds waiting, and plenty more empty canvases.  It is time now to switch to jewelry.  Wish me luck - I'm so going to need it!
Here's a little Mushroom named Montake' that I just painted within the last couple of weeks for your viewing pleasure and her story to understand her picture better. 8x10

Montake loved the way the light filtered through the trees down to the floor of the forest. It sparkled and dazzled like diamonds as it descended just a few feet away from her dark, damp home in the crook of an old tree. How Montake longed to step into that light. After watching butterflies and birds flit in and out of the light for hours, Montake finally gathered up all her courage and crept out from her hiding place. She moved ever so carefully to where the light was playing, all the while holding her breath. Suddenly and without thinking, she lept forward into the streaming light. She laughed and danced as the light touched her skin and tickled her nose. What a glorious feeling of freedom! It's funny to think that most of us spend out time being afraid of the dark but little Montake was afraid of the light - no longer!

Two down - Two to go

I am pooping out.  I should have had this one finished hours ago but it took me forever to even get started.  Number three is in the works.  It is almost 8pm and I don't know if I can get two more done by midnight.  I guess we shall see.
Wind 18 x 24

12 HOurs Later... One down, three to go!

I feel a bit woozy but here is One completed painting called "Carving Pumpkins".  A bit of a sadistic, fun piece for Halloween.  The other one is nearly there.  I will have to finish "Wind" tomorrow.  It is time for beddy bye. :o)

Update 5:25 PM

These are both 18 x 24.  This is what has happened over the past four (i think four) hours.  This includes a visit by my daughter and grandson, a trip to the gas station to help a friend out of gas, and watering the dog (my pleasant way of saying he had to "go").

Her dress is some fun paper

I just keep thinking "Work Faster! Work Faster!"

Watch My Progress - Ready, Set, Go!

I am challenging myself to finish these four within two days.  You can watch as I go...  some are just barely started and one is just a background (for now).
