It's been a LONG time!

Commissioned Painting
Commissioned Painting
Sorry about my absence for the past several weeks! 
The summer has been crazy with lots of traveling & household projects to get done plus I just felt the need to take a break from "social networking" for a while.  It's pretty important if I'm going to get my art out for the world to see but it's also time consuming & tiring trying to keep up with everything & everybody else.  So I just thought hey, I'm not gonna worry about how often I'm posting on my blog or Facebook or whatever.  Sometimes I find myself sitting in front of the computer more than I'm sitting at my art table & that's just not right!

Sooo.....this summer I redid a bedroom, moved our oldest daughter out for college, had both my son & his twin sister take overseas trips - Cole to England & Kayla to Spain for World Youth Day, took a fun family trip to Sarasota & did 2 commissioned paintings for a customer in Australia (shown above).  Before I knew it school started again & that reminds me that FALL is just around the corner - my absolute FAVORITE time of year & I'm really excited to start on some new paintings & other creations!  I just finished a new Saint Francis & Cats painting in autumn colors & it will be up on Ebay tomorrow so check back!  I'll post a photo & the link here on my blog!

Thanks for checking in & have a wonderful weekend!!!

Thank you Sarah! I had fun doing your paintings. Hope they arrive soon.
I can't wait for Fall to get here with some cooler weather! We are about to set a new record for 100+ degree days this summer. It's getting ridiculous! It's funny that our seasons are just the opposite!
Take care! :)
