christmas time is busy time!

With only a few days now 'til Christmas, I really have to wonder where the time went. I know I am probably not the only one who wonders this, every year, for certain! Months ago, while I was making my lists of all to do for Christmas, I thought I would certainly have plenty of time to get it all done and still enjoy the leisure of baking and entertaining. Hmmmm.....well, lets just say, at least the list was done on time!! LOL! Through it all, there have been many new pieces that have been completed this past month or so, many with new homes for them and more art on the way. I have really enjoyed them all, as I always do. Several pieces allowed me to try out some new techniques, and the feedback was more than positive! That is always a plus!

Commissioned 'Pineapple' 24" x 30" Acrylic on Gallery Canvas SOLD TYG
This piece was commissioned for Kim who wanted the whimsy found in my 'Dream' painting, but tamed down and colors changed to accommodate her Tommy Bahama style home...and, well, her husband! Loved the challenge. Thought a pineapple would be perfect and off I went. The fun of this painting is knowing there is an entire painting underneath the finished painting.

This is the under painting of the 'Pineapple' piece. I always get to this part and think, 'boy, this is fun! I could leave it just like this'! Then I have a moment of anxiety as I start to paint over it and then excitement creeps in. Lots of excitement. There's really nothing planned other than the colors and the subject matter. The rest is pure chance really (maybe, a bit of talent, too). Kim - and her husband - really loved the final piece! That's the part that makes my heart sing.

Here are some of the other pieces finished this past month... ' Owl' 5"x5" Acrylic on Gallery Canvas SOLD TYG

' Fall Leaf' 2.5"x3.5" 2 Layered - Watercolor, Pen & Ink on Watercolor Paper

There are many, many more pieces that have been finished and sold, so much more to do and the clock is still ticking! Christmas is coming, whether I am finished or not! Guess I'll have to depend on my local bakery to do my baking this year. That's really not so bad.
