A new painting… and some other stuff


Here I am once again, staying up too late. I am a glutton for punishment, as in NO SLEEP punishment!  I get involved in drawing and painting, and don't want to go to bed!

Anyway I have some good news!

I finished the painting for Anne Bradford's new children's book. I know I posted it before, but here it is again, it is a wartime nurse. Anne called me today and asked for it, as they are working on the War pages now.  I was proud to say I had finished it a few weeks ago, and I submitted it to her today. 🙂

As I said before, it looks "cartoon-like" because it is for a children's book.

My friend Mark Pettifer (I mentioned him in this post) is helping Anne put it all together.

I can't wait to see it! 🙂

So, today I decided to start a new painting.

Here is a preview:

I have had some really good news on the "show" front.

  • I am showing my painting "Reflections of a Diva" in a storefront. (this weekend until ?)
  • I have confirmation (yesterday) that I am approved to show in a gallery for 3 months next year! (November, December, and January 2017)

  • I am doing a solo show in a pop up gallery in February.
  • I am doing a solo show in a cafe in September.
  • I am going to try hard to do 30 day painting challenge in January.
  • I am going to try to host a blog hop in January.
  • I am taking a workshop from one of my favorite artists Jean Haines in April

 I am SUPER-EXCITED about next year!

  1. WOW do you have a lot planned! The nurse piece looks good and should do well in the book. I like the look of the new piece too – busy girl!

I love all my Readers! Thank you for your kind comments :)
