A Few New Samples In!

I have to apologize for posting so rarely these days. It’s in my mind to post everyday, but I just never find the time or the topics to accomplish it. The business takes up the time and it also seems to make my mind turn to mush when it comes to knowing what to write about. Sigh…

But today I do have some pictures to share. My whole idea of having models has mostly been falling through. One of those is a VERY busy person. And then another that has been kind of slow has pet issues right now and health issues with a pet you have had for over a decade are so hard to take. So I am being patient with both. But one of my models didn’t fall through, mostly because I was the one taking the picture and I was at her place anyway so she couldn’t get out of it!

Cece very happy with her “Twisted” mug.

Then my two mask samples, those models fell through for health reasons. So I have the masks, but I think I am glad about that one. If I get all the masks I can be advertising with them and any compliments I get gets a business card!

The masks are actually quite comfortable once you get used to the bands around your ears. The mask I had been using wraps around my head and is quite hot, these aren’t. And these definitely stay over the nose and mouth. It only took one wearing to get used to the bands for me. And they are washable. Though according to my dad’s cancer doctor spraying it with alcohol (assuming you can even find that!) is a good between wash measure. Just make sure your alcohol is over 60%. Who knew alcohol wasn’t all alcohol!

So that is all for me today. And here’s hoping sometime soon I can get back on task and post daily, or almost daily!

#DoodlewashAugust2020 August 1st, 2020 Waves

Well this one scared me half to death. Funny how the ones that scare me usually turn out better than the rest. I thought water, which meant capturing movement or hands, nothing on the human body is my forte. I went with water, I did one time accidentally catch a pretty beach so I thought, “maybe I can do it again.” I looked up a picture, which happened to be a picture of another painting and to the races I went.

Crashing Waves

I was really happy with my use of various blues and with the blending I did. And really really happy with how my beach turned out. So this was today’s painting work. Hope you like! Feel free to comment, I would love to hear what you think.
