Sidetracked!

"Not So Red #1"
6" x 7" acrylic and collage on canvas
available in my Etsy shop here

So...I got a little sidetracked from my Red Series...and this happened (above painting). I guess it mimicks my being a little ADD with the move coming and everything. Can't seem to keep my mind on any one thing (or series) for more than 10 minutes. Anyway...thanks to some ideas from my wonderful neighbor, Jackie (Yoshi's mom)...I decided to call this the "Not So Red" series. Seems fitting.

James and I had a busy weekend packing up the kitchen and doing other things to get ready for the big move. This Friday is the closing...so after that...the house will be ours! I can't wait to take Maisie there for the very first time. She wants a chance to sniff around and make sure that things are to HER liking before we move in. Maisie Rose O'Neill is a very particular girl!

I really really like this piece Linda..very lovely.

But Bogey in the below post, he is just incredible. Of all your art, I am in awe of your pet portraits, they have the most wonderful personality I have every seen.

congrats on more gorgeous work and don't stress about that move.

LOL! I think the new piece is so pretty! I'm laughing because getting sidetracked happens to me all the time. Great things happen when your mind wanders!!

Fabulous paintings both Bogey below... gosh i need to get you to do one of my Pepper... she was my luv before PJ... such a doll baby...

And the one above... LOVE it...
it really is disconcerting uprooting oneself and trying to create at the same time... way too much to do

Take your time... once you get into your studio you will be all ready to go for it...

I envy you that huge room

Give Maise lots of hugs and kisses from me and PJ

HUGS

I like the feel of this one. I really like the Matisse-like quality you have. It's very playful,yet sophisticated.

Sandy said...

ahhh nice painting even though you veered...

cannot WAIT to see the new place, you all settled in working in that studio.

Manon Doyle said...
