movement . . .

Well, I have just undergone the longest 'movement' in the history of moving.  We have been 'moving' since I last posted on this blog and we will finally be done tomorrow.  Why so long?  We moved a three bedroom house - one car load at a time.  Why?  I don't know.  Well actually, we tried to examine everything we owned and give it a 'yea' or a 'nay'.  Funny - we took so long to move that when I opened some of the boxes I was like 'what in the world is this?!' and 'why did I bring that?!" 

It has been a few weeks since I've done any type of art but I was telling that fantastic artist Janettmarie that it feels as if it has been six months!  I will slowly have to get back into the groove of things - when I find my supplies.  It's funny how you think about and miss the many artists that you share comments with - even though you may never have the opportunity to meet them in person.

This is another one of the unfinished paintings that I was working on.  I believe that I was working on skin tones.  Sorry - I didn't get to 'turn out the lights' on that tutu.  Could it be more bright?  I borrowed the color scheme from one of Degas' paintings of ballerinas.  'See' you soon!!

I'm having a lovely dark roast coffee right now and enjoying reading through your blog, chuckling about the lengthy move. What a great way to sort through all that stuff one collects. This painting is beautiful! I also loved the coffee cup by JM over the sofa. It looks awesome....

Welcome back!!!!!

It sounds nice being able to take your time moving. So many times I moved on a weekend only to find I moved a lot of junk and that I was sore for days.

Hope you love your new place.

I agree with Lisa, I would have guessed it finished too! Just like your moving! : )
