How did we manage to arrive to December once again?
Summer ends, school starts, Halloween goes by then you think there is still plenty of time before Christmas ... WRONG ! ! ! Christmas always gets here before I have enough time to do everything that needs to be done ... Most of the snow has melted but I am not fooled ... Christmas will be here soon !
I have been painting 6 days a week lately, from 8 a.m. till 4:30 p.m. when I go down to the village to pick up Ulysse from school. We do homeworks, I prepare supper, we eat and do the dishes, then ZAP ! I go back to my studio with my son-buddy-partner-in-crime. I work again till around 2 a.m. and stop, not because I am tired but usually because my feet are cold from staying seated for so long. But I am happy! I finished my last commissioned painting today and have been working on 4 different other paintings at the same time which I am trying to finish for Wednesday. I will be adding more original canvas and some prints in my Etsy shop and on eBay before the end of the week. That is what I have been up to ! Not much time to write on my blog, or respond to comments, or leave comments on everyone's blog but thank you so much for stopping by and for ALL your wonderful comments about my art. I try not to watch or listen to too much news about the economy and the disasters that seem to tumble behind it. I still can't get over the story of this poor security guard who was stampeded by a bunch of impatient shoppers at Walmart ... Are people going crazy or what? I am living a very simple life made of love, family, sharing and painting and I am very happy with it. BUT ... My shopping is still not all done and it is driving me crazy !!! And the decorations are not all out of the boxes and the cards are not sent and ... I think I will do like Diablo my cat and do the fake-iguana stretch! No need to rush ... CHRISTMAS IS FUN !
