thinking about painting

I've been taking a little break from the easel. This is the busy season at work--I'm a manager at Home Depot, and springtime at Home Depot is like Christmas at the mall. We really don't get a chance to breathe. It's FUN, but tiring. I confess I have crawled home some days and fed myself tuna fish straight from the can.

I only have one piece left to complete for my upcoming show, and I should be able to get that done soon. Right now I am down with a sinus infection--no fun at all. But there is work in progress; I promise you that. And I have so many ideas I want to start on! My plan is to do a lot of fast, loose pieces this summer and then buckle down again in the fall. I'm going to try out some new styles and see how they fit before I go back to my usual. I may even pick up a brush! (shh, don't tell my pastels...) Then we can see how my 'usual' has changed! It 'll be fun. Stay tuned.

Now I need to go get some Kleenex. My poor nose is ready to abandon my face entirely.

  1. So sorry to hear about your nose problems. I'm having the same issue. I'm also barely crawling home from this spring season - started working at a nursery. Seems I spend most of my time unloading delivery trucks!

  2. Jean--when we both get healthy, we'll have to get together and compare biceps!

    Feel better soon!
