The Holidays and TIME

I am so impressed with those of you who have been able to keep up your regular schedule of work, and for some, even a higher volume of work during the holiday season here in the states! I find it hard to work like I want to with trips and then the catch up from the trips and then decorating and, and, and...Today I am posting a beginning of a painting I began before I left for San Diego. I have come back to it with different thoughts. I may do something different from the photo I took...maybe...FUN to get to decide...

I am almost finished with my personal challenge painting of my step son's dog Molly. It went so fast I didn't think to take pics in process...and now there is just a bit of fine tuning left...Hopefully I'll get to finish it this afternoon. For now I'm off to do a bit of cleaning for a friend who has had a horrible year! We all need to count our blessings...I am always humbled by those who have such trials but retain such wonderful attitudes about life.
And, alas...I had to share a pic of the beautiful sunrise I woke up to with part of our Christmas Tree in front...yet to be decorated...I think we need to start a movement to get more hours in the day during busy holiday times! HA.

Have a wonderful day to you all!!

Saundra,
I don't keep the regular schedule this time of year, but manage to do a few new paintings in between commissions and shipping. I start my shopping in the summer so at least I don't have that on my plate now.
I am interested to see the new ideas you have for the painting and the Molly peice completed.

Thanks Diana...I will hopefully finish Molly tomorrow and then post it...the unfinished one when I have about 20 free minutes! HA

I can't wait to hear of your stepson's reaction when he sees Molly's painting! In fact, I do so hope you will snap a photo of those two beautiful family members (both a delight for the eyes! LOL) This new piece is looking quite lovely. This is collaged thus far? It is looking to be a lovely and rocky outcropping so far. I cannot wait to see what you do with it!!

You do enjoy life. I love your enthusiasm about your son and am so glad you got to visit him. It looks to have been a fabulous trip.

Keep enjoying life and being grateful. You are an inspiration about how to live life as well as how to create.

Merry Christmas, Saundra!
