Been unbalanced and busy!

Well I owe myself and whoever reads this an apology. I have definately been MIA the last few weeks. :) A few things have changed, and probably for the better, but I haven't gotten a chance to paint which disappoints me . I guess that's just part of my process of tying to find my balance.

        Well, to start out by updating you, I still have the same job . Which kind of stinks but it's still a job. I just hope that I find something new soon. Most of you already know, but I got a puppy!! She is darling! The beginning there was a bit of a rough patch. I knew getting a little puppy was going to be some work , but man, just kind of like marriage expeirencing it was different. Plus it is absolutely no fun when you have allergies and feel misserable. I decided to keep her though , she is a handful but she is a cutie and I am figuring out different ways to potty train her and for her to get more comfortable staying in her crate at night. :)

LOL , and there the lil stinker is. She tries to take over my bed. But this little girl is not potty trained yet so nope!  Through this process though I am a little disappointed by some things that happened, but that's life. Life happens, people make mistakes, and we can either choose to work through them or just move on, aye? lol

Something else that I quite didn't expect, but my hubby really is starting to like her!! So that's good, see they have something in common that they like doing, taking naps!!

            Anyways,  I need a game plan! I miss my ministry, and I miss only having to work 3 days a week. I was working 5 days a week with my current job, but I managed to get it down to 4 days a week.  So maybe I'll take a Microsoft word class in the mean time, casually look for a new job and give myself back a few hours a week to paint. I miss it so much.  Plus the little baby is content playing with her toys, lol. I plan on updating yall again soon with more pictures and what I am up to! It's a Friday afternoon, and I am going to go find something useful to do. :)

Feeling inspired and nervous

Well, I had a nice long 4 day weekend. Much of it was spent alone, but it's okay. My husband was on call for his job. He got called in alot, he is a good provider. I heart him so much!~

    Anyways, It's been a few days since I have last posted anything but that doesn't mean that I haven't been up to nothing !!!  Yes, I'll admit , I took alot of naps over the weekend , hehe . I needed the extra sleep. I painted a little bit, but mostly just sat around and sketched , " doodling " more ideas for paintings .  I am surprised with myself , in the last week I have released my inner creativity . It's exciting ,  and is inspiring me to paint more and more .  Usually,Ii search google for hours on end looking at other people's paintings, or photographs of exotic cultures and european cities.  I love painting people, women especially, I think women are beautiful to paint. I love painting animals, and landscapes, different cultures, flowers and more. One day I would like to paint portraits, and pet portraits. That would be cool.

     I love my new house so much and my new studio ( in process of being finished). Trying to make some cash from my job and selling paintings before I can be completely settled , but I love it just as it is right now.  Currently it's BRIGHT Green , one of my absolute favorite colors.  I feel inspired and energized whenever I see this room. Check it out so far!!

Isn't it so pretty and bright?! I adore it! One day soon, I will have a better easel , & a comfty chair to sit in. Cause sitting on the ground after a while my back starts to hurt!

I am getting pretty close to finishing a painting soon .  I have the canvas covered, and it's okay so far... I like it , but I can't wait until it is done and I see the finished result ! That's my favorite part.  I would have liked to paint more on it tonight but the paint is to wet .  I keep picking up colors I don't want to with my brush . So maybe by tomorrow evening it will be dry enough that I can continue. But guuuueesss what, I am going to give ya'll a sneak peek!

Trust me, it will look better when I am finished. Any suggestions, anyone? I like suggestions!

      Well it's been a long day and I have to go back to work tomorrow, bah !! Goodnight friends ~~

P.S -  Some of my paintings will be showcased tonight on, see my online shop at : , I hope that link works for ya'll! Sweet dreams!
