YELLOW ROSE ~ I just did this one last night and it's an abstract done in acrylics on a 6 x 6 inch stretched canvas. Cyn, I know you're on vacation but I'm going through those canvases I bought from you and I really love this size! I painted this one really fast and I'm thinking of doing another tonight.

NATURHYTHYMS ~ This is the one I finished last weekend and it's acutally the same painting in my second to last post, even though it doesn't look anything like it! It's acrylics and 9 x 12 inches on Canson canva-paper. I'm trying to paint some larger ones in the same style as the ACEO's I've been doing and I was happy with the way this one turned out!

I want to thank everyone for the heartfelt words about my Mom, they are such a real comfort to me. It is even a little easier today than yesterday and I know that time is the healer. Yesterday I went through her things that my 2 sisters and I divided up, all the time remembering the things she used to do and say. I polished her wood potato bin (with apples painted on the side) and washed the pretty glasses and old coffee cup that my dad drank so many cups of coffee from that the design is fading off. I am glad that she is free now and in a much better place. Another thing that I'm grateful for... my two sisters and I bonded again in a close and loving way while going through the things that she left behind. We all three live in different states so it's hard to keep in touch sometimes.

Feeling a deep, deep sadness too deep for words~

TIE DOWN THE SUN ~ I painted these 4 ACEO size paintings in acrylics on Canson watercolor paper last weekend. I was happy with how a story seemed to flow out of these and decided to make prints of them and try selling as a set. The prints turned out wonderful and I am going to offer them on Artbyus and Ebay. I am still trying to decide if I want to sell the originals or just prints. It seems like I've sold almost all my original paintings over the last few years so I'm trying to keep some originals now.

A very talented artist and good friend Babs was telling me about a sacred place in the mountains of Peru and the legend of the hitching post of the sun.
The legend and scenery are so magical and breathtaking and I would love to go there someday! I think we're going to take a ride down there in the balloon, if anyone would like to go with us, hop in! :D
