Well, when I'm snowed in, I paint! Here are three new ones; A little mermaid on a deep sided canvas with a dreamy bee's wax finish all over, a very symmetrical tree that I cut out, painted, then glued on the canvas along with collaged paper birds and gave it a crackly antique finish, and a sweet little black girl with her sleepy friend on a 3"X3" mini. I will be posting them on Ebay soon. Check 'em out!

I finished my Federal taxes yesterday, now I will start on those FAFSA reports! Can you tell I'm procrastinating? I am also such a nice Momma that I am doing my daughter's taxes too. This afternoon I am determined to get to the post office! Have a glorious day~~

I love the new pieces. The mermaid looks a little cold above that snow covered tree:)
The little face on the kitty is adorable.
Have a nice weekend Cris!

Wow Cris, I've missed your last few posts and it looks like you've been busy painting. They're all so fun. The snow photos are beautiful, we've been having Spring time weather here for most of Jan. it's supposed to get to 65degrees today- very strange.

Did you notice who won the other doll?

Jenny said...

God, I can be a total moran, somtimes. I thought Lind Greene was your mom...Could you imagine, both you winning a doll. I am so sorry, I am a dork. Linda of Meadowbrook probably thought I had lost my mind...heehee sometimes I feel like I have.

Anyway, Megan should be there Thursday or Friday! ENJOY!!!
