The first piece I did for this couple was this painting:
After we were working along and I was going to layer more reds on top of this; I told her I could not as this painting had a very definite personality in the turquoise and accent reds. I felt we had to begin again. So I did this week and finished the painting above in red that they absolutely love. SO this painting entitled "the Dance" is available. Just email me with an offer; it is 30 x 30 and very thick paint with about 12 layers in some places. Laurie Tell me in the email you are interested in The Dance and I can send close up pictures.
Not sure at all where Thursday went. We were up early with a trip into town dropping the truck off at the body shop to have some things repaired on it, including the cracked windshield. It has been cracked for 9 years and it is time for a new one. Then it was back home and Terry was digging boxes out of the garage in preparation for more unpacking. BUT, I was out of stuffed envelopes that go out with my paintings and I had to clean out my storage closet for incoming canvas from Rupen at http://canvasplace.com. It is the BEST canvas on the market. After 40 minutes of both of us stuffing envelopes, I have enough for the next year or two, or three.
We took two hours off to sit together an watch the "afternoon" movie he ordered from Netflix called MAZE. I would recommend it for all artists, (there is nudity so it is not for children) and a note to Niki, the artist in the movie had Tourette Syndrome. It was very well done. Just seconds after the cast and credits rolled, we were out the door to meet our friends for Thursday night gathering at the local Mexican Restaurant.
Arriving home last night I worked for a few hours on the http://www.artistsoftexas.org main site. Stop by and see what is happening when you have time. We are going to start a new area for Junior Artists in Texas. We also welcomed a few new artists to our growing group of about 80 members now.
I want to celebrate today as Friday and the end of a busy week. I will be praying for some friends that are facing cancer in the family and for others starting new businesses and for our daughter beginning a new job this next week. Our Father has a plan and the sooner we can all learn to sit back and let Him move in our lives, the sooner things fall into place. He always opens windows when the door slams shut.
