I thought things were pretty quiet lately, that I was not getting as many emails and comments on my blog as usual. I thought it was due to the extreme cold temperatures we were getting... I thought that maybe the state of the economy had caught up with me after all... Then I thought maybe I had said something I shouldn't have said and that I offended everyone ... Or possibly I had used the wrong word in English and made a fool of myself enough that people did not wanna come and visit anymore ... But ... Today I finally figured out why my mailbox was so empty and calm !!! For some obscure reason, my last posts did not show on the web. I could view my updated blog but no one else could !!! I feel so much better now that I know you guys are still there but you just could not view my last bla bla blas... So, if you want to keep up to date with the going ons in my neck of the wood, please scroll back to Thursday, January 8 2009 post and you won't miss anything. My new moose story, my latest junk store find, my trip to Vermont, how cold it has been here, etc, etc, etc. I finished this little Frida and Doll painting early last week and it is available on eBay for two more days. I just love how this image turned out, love the joyful and spring-style colors in her dress and her little stern-face doll. I will be posting more paintings this week and there will be a few Valentine ones in there, I promise! Oh! And before I forget, I want to thank everyone who has included one of my paintings in their Etsy Treasury! I am honored to have been featured in 7 different treasuries in 2 weeks! Wow! What a medal this represents to me! Thank you ! Merci ! Gracias !
