Well, painting number one is complete...as near as I can in one sitting...there will always be the recheck after I've been away from it for awhile...He's my sweetie for sure...And, I'm off and running...I'd like to do several paintings of this boy for different members of the family before I'm done...WHEW...as usual...my December will be crazy busy...A big thanks to my friend Carol Nelson who gave me great advice IF I was going to attempt to paint a baby as to colors...Babies are hard to do as there is so little to them...ha...no wrinkles, no eyebrows...no wrinkles...but, my family wouldn't wait! LOL
I was also happy to find out I got "Late Summer Aspen" in a show that will be hanging at the Madden Museum in January...
And, Thanksgiving was wonderful! I hope you all had a great turkey day too! We were able to see my parents and my brother and his family; some of whom I haven't seen in many years...I'm unabashedly sharing photos of my wonderful family...topped off with my and my little guy of course!! This is my wonderful brother Rick; who just so happens was having a birthday!
My sister-in-law Lori who I have shared MANY moments of pure delight...we laugh well together!!
And...my two beautiful nieces Kensey and Kaitlinn...I got to make jewelry with them and we had a ball!!
I've got to make a blurb book...whew...so little time and so much I want to do!!
AND...of course I couldn't wait to get my hands on our little bundle of joy myself...Nana and Paxton...
