Wow What A Week

This has been a heck of a week! Rain, rain, rain and COLD! October has been very unkind to the garden this year. Oh well, in the meantime I did manage to start a few new paintings and finished one today that will be listed on Ebay soon. I call it "Young Frida" as it is from an old black and white photo taken when Frida was quite young. I am happy with this one finally and ready to turn it loose. I have decided to start a project featuring angels as the holiday season fast approachs and I am already getting into the spirit. I have some great ideas about painting on old wood from drawers or to find some old wood, lol! Wish me luck.

Working Away in Plattsburgh

I will be working all day on another Frida painting and I can hardly wait to get to it. First of course is feeding the pets and taking the dog outside for a little "catch the tennis ball" and once they are all settled in it is my time with my brushes!

Here is the preliminary sketch:

Here She Is!

I finally put down the brush and turned her loose. I am ready for the next installment and first thing in the morning I will start a new sketch of Frida and see how she appears to me this time. I am very excited about this process, is it always so engrossing?
