New Art!



I finished a couple more paintings before my vacation. They will be listed on ebay some time next week.

The first one, "Midnight Rendezvous" reminds me of my sister, Kerry. She was a terrible insomniac and when she couldn't sleep she would lift one of her babies from the crib and hold them in the middle of the night. We used to tease her that her children would never learn to sleep on their own, but they did. This one has mellow colors and makes me think of those cherished moments of bonding with a baby in the middle of the night, even if you are extremely exhausted like this young mother eying the clock as she cuddles her wide awake tyke~



The second one is very whimsical! It is called "My Blue Friends". This kitty is trying to make friends with the blue birds (maybe)--but they are NOT buying it!!

If you haven't been here in a while scroll down to see a sneak peek at the other paintings being list on ebay throughout the coming week! The link is at the top of my page~

~Oh, I love the "Midnight Rendezvous"~how I miss my bloggy world.~I have been praying real hard Chris.~& I know I need to give up being a scenic artist.~It just sucks all my energy.~I will be 50 this Sept. & when I paint a show, I have nothing left for weeks.~So, I can't do my own art.~It is a hard thing, cuz, I realize how lucky I have been to have a wonderful paying job in the arts, doing something I love. But, I just can't anymore.~I have lots to sort out.~
I need to do all these painting in my head.~

Oh my, I so remember those nights! Looking at the clock and then looking at their faces and seeing not an ounce of sleepiness in their eyes. Ugh! Ha ha. They still keep me up late wanting to read, talk and play, but it is a little funner now.
