What's on my drying rack...

Here's a few paintings I just finished on the drying shelves (8 x 10's). I found this Native American pot at a thrift store for like a $1.00. It has a chip in the rim, but I just paint it out. I looked up the signature on the bottom and it's signed (I think) Gerie Vail. Evidently the Vail family does a lot of horsehair pottery. One thing that was interesting while painting it, was that it wasn't completely symmetrical. At first I was going to correct it, but then thought better of it. I think it adds to the charm of the pot.

Work In Progress photos...

I'm so swamped lately! School has been keeping me busy, plus my classes, plus I try to have a life! Anyway, it's been a while since I posted, so thought I would post a wip of this cloud painting that's up for auction on ebay. I hope all of you are doing well!

Well, I found out officially that my little car has developed an oil leak. It started out about a month ago...just a small drop on the concrete. The drop has gotten larger, which means the leak is getting worse. I love my car. It's a 2002 Miata and is probably the first car I ever bought and picked out on my own (with no husbands, or Dads, or anyone telling me what I should buy). Is my car practical? Nope. Can I haul lots of art supplies in it? Nope. In fact, I have to put the top down to get large canvas in the front seat. Will I be upset when I have to let this car go eventually? Yep! I'm hoping my little oil leak won't be too expensive to fix and is nothing serious.

Favorite Things...

I went with my Mom several weeks ago to one of the local antique shows and I bought these sweet little handkerchiefs. I've always thought they were pretty and my Grandmother would sometimes let me carry one of hers in my purse when I was a little girl. Now, granted I never use them...(I'm a kleenex girl!!) but I just love the delicate little patterns on them so I've been putting them in my still life work. Being an artist gives me a bit of an excuse to keep useless little things around just because I like them.
