Art for gallery and a journal page
I painted up another piece to take to the gallery this weekend. I think I've got a good assortment now and I hope it sells because in a way, I'd LOVE to be listing some of it on Etsy :(
We shall see! The gallery 'Holiday' event ends November 30th so maybe I can still list some things later. I hope something sells! ????????
This is a 12 x 12
Tonight I did a journal page with different things I wish I could have told myself as a young girl. Kind of like that Brad Paisley song where he's singing to himself as a young boy? (Letter to Me)
You'll see I've written 'you don't have to say yes' and 'you can say no', etc.
Obviously I've spent a good portion of my life trying to make everyone else around me happy, living in fear of hurting them or alienating them if I spoke up for my wants and/or needs. I'd want the young me not to do that so much. Not that I'd want her to grow up selfish and indifferent to others needs, but a nice balance would be good :)
I've been a little under the weather since Sunday so I'm sorry if I haven't visited your blogs. I don't know if I have a slight flu bug or what. Two nights had me running a low grade fever with chills and that is gone, but this is the third day with stomach cramps. It seems to come in waves and subsides. Hopefully this will pass and I can be 100% again soon.
We are having our first winter storm warning right now. Wind gusts up to 60 mph and the rain we're getting now is supposed to turn to snow by morning. Can you say DEPRESSING? We've had such a gorgeous fall and this is a smack in the face for sure.
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
