Something New

My dolly is sitting there not finished. I am stuck. I hate that but she is missing something and haven't see what it is yet. Been in a slump lately. Scramble, rush and all that from Mom being here, kids, pets and especially poor Mr. Peapod.
As I stated earlier I have a show coming up. Have to get as much done as possible so I decided to do this painting last night. Got it all done. I have never been a painter. Have a family full of beautiful painters and artist but never was one of them. I just play with fabric and what ever else I get my hands on. This was so much fun. I had a ball. Inspired by Kelly Roberts. Lots of techniques in her book to try and play with. any of you painters out there with tips on how to improve I welcome your suggestions.

I like the way this turned out. I think it is sweet. It is going to the show. I have some other painting I am working on along with a list of everything else. Time to rush and scramble again to have a few things for it. Won't have near what I ususally do but a few dollars in inventory is better than none.
Off to cook dinner and list some items on ebay.
Have a great evening.

That is the plan but ya know I haven't heard from Sandy. I deleted her email. I am gonna call her tomorrow and make sure. I will email ya when I know. I think~ it is Mother's day weekend?
Oh what show is at the fair ground? Country Christmas is Bainbridge right? I heard the other day that lots of stuff closing and the town is aweful right now. Don't mean to scare ya just a heads up. Better to be prepared then count on something and it not there. I hope/pray I am wrong for your sake.
