Here come's the sun...

I know... I promised myself I would write another post before the weekend was over, and here I sit and it's Tuesday night. My bad.... Anyways, I got distracted this weekend. I did start a new painting, and those who are already on my facebook page has already seen all of these pictures, but I want to share them anyways.   As usual, I am not going to post another picture of my current painting until it is finished, and this time I will only post it on my blog first before I post on my Artist Facebook page. 
Gorgeous day today in Galveston, TX.

Last Monday as you know I lost my job, so this Monday a friend and I went job hunting together. We had fun , we went to lunch and scouted out places to leave our resumes. Job hunting is always better with a friend. Today, I did more volunteer work with another friend in Galveston Island, Texas. As you can see above, after we were done we went to the beach. The weather was perfect today, and there was a nice breeze going on. I wish I had brought some more appropriate clothing so I could have gone further into the water but maybe next time. Tomorrow, I get to stay home and clean my casa, and do a little painting. Then in the afternoon, more job hunting.  Well, I'm sorry I don't have much else to say. So y'all will have to wait till I am done with my painting. I hope y'all love it!  Have a good night friends!

Love,  Jessica!~~~

An artist is their own worse crtic...

 Well, I don't have a whole lot to update y'all with, but I did loose my job this Monday, which stinks. But life moves on ya know? I'm not to bummed out about it. It wasn't my favorite job, but it is kind of bittersweet, I needed the money but didn't like the job. Oh well, but it was convenient that I was let go from my job this week cause I got to go hang with friends in my volunteer ministry work, and come home and paint and jam out to music all day long! Which was great, and very much needed ! I think I am finished with another painting, comments are welcome!  Pictures are below :) :) :) ....

The whole painting... Yeah I know she has a big butt, and I like it, haha.


Close up of the woman..

 My little pup even likes to help me paint. Anyway, I'm at the point where I think I am finished with the painting, but I do listen to suggestions. Anyways, back on the subject of losing my job. I think I am going to switch gears this time in my job hunting. I am going to try and leave my resumes at Art Galleries, or any kind of artsy store where I could potentially learn something. I think I would enjoy working at that type of place. Plus, major bonus if I could learn how to matte and make prints of my work. Still some what confused on how to do that, even after taking that awesome art class with Kelly Rae Roberts. One of my favorite artists from back up north. Portland, Oregon , on a side note y'all should go visit there, it's awesome!! Anyways, I am confused on how to make large prints. One day, I would love to be able to successfully sell originals and prints of my artwork. Also, maybe open my own gallery or art store. That's the future though, presently I'm happy just blogging and painting to my heart's desire. Well, I hope everyone enjoys their evening! I'll update y'all again before the fast approaching weekend is over ! :)

Home Sweet Home....

I am so glad it's the weekend! However,  I have been feeling quite homesick still. I want to plan a visit back home to Washington, or to my 2nd home in Oregon area. I miss the beauty and total vibe that I used to have up North. I miss my family and my friends also. I hope sometime next spring / summer time I can plan a trip up north to see my family. I miss the area and people so much!

Me Just outside of Pike place market. Seattle, WA.

Not sure why but I love this pic, partially looking out into Puget sound, beautiful in person.

Anyways, I love all of you and appreciate those who read my blog! I've started painting again, I'll post the finished painting sometime this week, so stay tuned! :-P

4 years of Marriage

Hello world. It's Monday and it was my first day back to work, and the end of my 4 day weekend. It was wonderful . My 4 year anniversary was Thursday October 6th.  I've enjoyed 4 years with a wonderful man. Granted, we have definitely have had our ups and down's, but he has been a very loving and supportive husband.  On the day of our Anniversary, he took me to Kemah boardwalk here in Texas. We would have went somewhere else but he was on call with his job and we couldn't stray to far from home.  We went to the aquarium restaurant and ate some good seafood. Then walked around the boardwalk for a while, rode on a few rides, ( I was screaming). I also got him to take a few photo's of us in a photo booth below. :)
           He of course did not smile in any of the pictures. Figures lol, but I gotta love him!

      My husband had told me  my anniversary gift this year ( and the next 30 years) would be our new house, lol. Okay, I was totally cool with that for this year, so I didn't buy him anything. Shame on me, cause he fooled me! He did buy me something and it was a total surprise! So thoughtful  of him. He bought me a cute little stool and an awesome easel. Which was something that was on my wish list for my studio. He is so sweet!

I loooooooooooooooooove it! Anyways, besides my anniversary, we enjoyed a long weekend celebrating some friends of ours anniversary of 10 years, April & Darryll,we love them very much!  Besides that we ate out, (too much), and took lots of naps and spent time at home together. I plan on painting this week, on my new easel :)... But i have to end this post here cause I have a dog groomer about to come over and give the little brat a bath. She is being a stinker today!!! Can't wait till she grows out of chewing on everything. My lil puppy, gotta love her! Love all of you and enjoy the rest of your day!
